Food Porn: Tina’s Italian Restaurant (CLOSED)

This place I’ve already written about before, so for my thoughts on the location and restaurant itself you can check out here.  This was another one of my numerous repeat visits with Alli and her family, and this time I decided to try something new (it’s becoming a trend).  Being that there was 7 of us, there was a lot of appetizers and entree’s, so plenty of Food Porn.

For appetizers we had their Fried Mozzarella and their Bruschetta.

The Bruschetta was so-so, I wasn’t terribly impressed with it but their fried mozz is possibly some of the best I’ve ever had.  Tie that in with their amazing sauce to dip in, it was fantastic (and one of Alli’s favorite foods ever).  I looked at the menu and tried to find something that was new or something I’ve never had before, and I found on their menu the Eppie Roll (apparently a Tina’s specialty).

It’s basically sausage and peppers baked into a calzone, what is not to like?  It came with a side of sauce that I poured all over it, it was really good.  Considering I love the fried goodness around the calzone but I hate ricotta cheese, this was the next best thing to happen to me.  It was pretty big and relatively cheap too, only 4.99 for that guy.

Last but not least was a slice of their “Silician Style” pizza that I got topped (or in this case smothered) in green olives.  For 2 bucks it was a pretty small piece of pizza, but tasted really good.  Normally I love thin crust way more thin then any thicker style, but this was awesome.  Yes it was a little heavy on the green olives but it worked so I didn’t mind.  If you’re a lover  of good Italian food and you don’t think there are any good places in the southtowns, you are wrong.  Tina’s has a great selection on their menu, a wonderful sauce (which is really key), and its not expensive or overly fancy. Instead of taking that trip into downtown to go to Chef’s, try out Tina’s in Hamburg instead.
