We finally tried the new Italian restaurant in town located where Corky Bell's use to be. It opened a few weeks ago and is called, A Taste of Italy. We went on a Sunday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised. They have it decorated nice in there, it's much different that the old seafood motif. They have a lot of Italian decor and they actually tried to make it look fancy by setting out full place settings at the tables.
It was funny because when we walked in Kady said, "I want popcorn shrimp!" She figured it was the same placed just cleaned up.
They have a separate lunch menu that is not as expansive as the dinner menu but they had a nice selection. Aside from the Italian fare they also had several sandwiches, salads and regular seafood options. The prices were comparable to other places locally and the food was good. Most of us sampled something Italian and all the dishes were tasty. They bake their own ciabatta bread and give you the olive oil with herbs like you would get at Carabbas.
The best part...kids 6 and under eat FREE!! Kids over 6 get the meals for 1/2 price off the adult menu and then kids meals are $5.95.
