So we took the family up to Duluth, MN for our summer vacation this year. We thought some of the best things to do was to try some food places that were on the Triple D show. Of course I’m talking about Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.
So Jason tried to plan out each day one of the restaurants that we would try out. Some of the restaurants were better for breakfast, and some of them we found out going to be better lunch or dinner.
Jason did a wonderful job of planning out these places I was super psyched about all of it.
So this Italian restaurant we went to I wasn’t sure if the kids were going to like it. You know most of the time kids just want spaghetti or pizza but they heard there was ravioli on the menu and they were stoked. I try to stay away from most Italian food because I want to watch the calories however Jason said that we needed to share a plate of lasagna and my gosh there are honking huge pieces of this stuff.
We also decided to get some sort of sandwich and a split that in half so we had lunch in an Italian restaurant that was cool in decorative in an old building and we shared our lunch and I felt like if we would have gotten spaghetti it would have been Lady and the Tramp all over again.
Both of our girls decided on the ravioli and they told me that I must learn how to make this and become better at cooking ravioli I felt very ashamed.
Our son got a yummy meatball type sandwich that he absolutely loved and if there’s any place in the world he can get a meatball sandwich that’s what he will order. Doesn’t matter if it’s Subway, or the most fanciest Italian restaurant, or your deli sandwich place down the road, I think I’m going to start calling him meatball head.
Not only is this place a restaurant that serves very good Italian food in huge helpings but they sell a lot of their meats and cheeses in a deli format, I think my husband wanted to take a big sausage back to the hotel room.
Prices for this place are pretty average good wholesome Italian food for the price of 8 to $10 per plate not too bad for feeding a family of 5.
I give this place 4 out of 5 pants off
On our family vacation this summer, we decided to do the Triple-D tour of Duluth, MN. For the tour, we hit as many restaurants from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives as we could. We did a pretty good job of it. We only missed one restaurant within 20 miles, and that was in another state. We were planning to go there, but ran out of time.
Our first stop on the tour was Gannucci’s Italian Market. This place totally qualifies as a dive. There mismatched furniture, a one-person bathroom that doesn’t lock, and 30 year old paint on some of the walls. When you first walk in, it looks like a tiny deli counter with a couple of tables. Then they walk you around the corner and you find out there’s an actual restaurant hidden through the doorway. The service was kind of slow, too.
Forget the decor. Forget the service. The food is the star of the show. The girls got the ravioli and loved it. I had the lasagna, and it was better than my mommy used to make. (sorry Ma!) I don’t remember what Linda or the boy had, but they both enjoyed it. (Editor’s Note: I don’t read Linda’s reviews before I write mine. I did share a sandwich with her, but I don’t remember anything about it. Take that for what it’s worth.)
Totally worth going. Four pants off.
Total score: 4 out of 5 pants off
