In this economy, it’s difficult for a family to do better than that! Spinach Artichoke Dip served with ciabatta bread is a good place to start no matter where you are, and the pizza is full of flavor thanks to a liberal brushing of garlic butter on the crust.

www.cappettos.com Close your eyes and conjure up an image of a traditional Italian-American restaurant in the 1950s. Cappetto’s is that place. Still going strong after opening in 1956, this eatery thrives with pizza, steak, veal and homemade desserts. The sweet tooth in us has a special affection for the Chocolate Walnut Mascarpone Torte: raspberries, mascarpone cream, buttery chocolate cake and walnut praline glaze. What’s not to love?
