Your Grandkids Will LOVE It!
I promised my nephew Schyler that I would take him out for dinner tonight.
I drove him to, “Louie’s Pizza and Pasta” which is located in Ingersoll, ON.
When we arrived their very large parking lot was PACKED and the restaurant entrance was full of patrons hoping to nab a table. We waited 40 minutes to be seated and during that time there was a steady stream of customers arriving to pick-up take out orders. This sort of “out-of-the-way” restaurant has a big following.
You may recall the Canadian television show, “You Gotta Eat Here” – this restaurant was featured on that Food Network show. Host, “John Calucci” ate their signature giant panzerotti. Schyler and I noticed that a good majority of those eating in the restaurant tonight ordered them too.
Schyler enjoyed the “Grilled Dagwood” – salami, ham and turkey with cheddar and garlic chive cheese – grilled on marble rye bread – topped with chipotle mayo. I was happy to see a “Baked” and not fried Chicken Parmesan choice on the menu. They hand pound the chicken breast and bread it – topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella – served on a bed of spaghetti with even more parmesan – yes, a pile of carbs!
Portions are massive. I noticed at least 80 percent of the patrons request take-out containers. I needed one too – only ate 1/2 of what was on my plate and I was stuffed. Schyler had no problem finishing the large sandwich and fresh cut fries!
I asked Schyler if he would order the same thing again. He said “yes” but added that he would try something different first because there are a number of items on the menu that appeal to him.
Service was attentive and friendly.
My entree tasted ok and that was fine because I picked this restaurant knowing it would appeal to my nephew and I was right. I’m sure if you take your Grandchildren to “Louis’s Pizza and Pasta” they will be just as pleased as Schyler.
