What Should Tallahassee Eat? – Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen

Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen Review (Tallahassee, FL)

By William Kristoph

Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen is new to the Governor’s Square Mall food court. When Sbarro shut down a few months ago, Villa stepped in quickly to take the space and try to satisfy our pizza cravings. Did they succeed? For mall pizza, Villa is great. For regular pizza, dare I say, it’s well above average.

Pepperoni Pizza

Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen Pepperoni Pizza

The star of the show, the pepperoni pizza was above average in Tallahassee. Unexpected, the crust was thin, with a crispy bottom and chewy. It was not overly salty, nor did the pepperoni let out too much grease. My slice was balanced well with plenty of cheese, pepperoni and sauce. The Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen pizza sauce is solid. It doesn’t lean sweet or bitter, it’s a very nice middle of the ground that works well.

What Should Tallahassee Eat? – Gaines Street Pies

Gaines Street Pies (Tallahassee, FL) Review

By William Kristoph

A couple of weekends ago, my wife and I decided to try some pizza at Gaines Street Pies.  Ordering was quick and easy. The waitress was friendly and we had the entire place to ourselves prior to an afternoon FSU Baseball game. I went for “The Saucy Minx” and my wife thought the “McBurger” sounded great so we went halfsies on a pizza. We chatted over a couple of beverages, took a window seat, checked out the comics on the dining tables and waited a few minutes for our pizza.

What Should Tallahassee Eat? – Dave’s Pizza Garage

Dave’s Pizza Garage Review (Tallahassee, FL)

By William Kristoph

Last Friday, I grabbed a quick lunch at Dave’s Pizza Garage on North Monroe Street. I’m always searching for good pizza in Tallahassee, and Dave’s was on my short list of places to try. An immediate plus for Dave’s Pizza Garage is the location, which has ample parking! Hooray! I walked in, checked out a menu briefly and placed an order with Dave himself for a small pepperoni pizza.

Thankful Thoughts

By William Kristoph

With Thanksgiving Day quickly approaching here are a few things that I’m thankful for in 2013.

  1. Family – I’m blessed with a great family. Whether it’s my parents, my wife or my child I’m lucky enough to be in a family full of love and laughs. Is it perfect? Heck no, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything else.
  2. Tallahassee – The weather here is generally agreeable. FSU Baseball’s home is here, and I’ll put our spring up against anywhere else in the country.
  3. Friends – I made some great new friends over the last year or so. I’m thankful for each of them. Positivity breeds positivity and I’m thankful that I have positive friends around.
  4. Health – With each passing year, I’m more thankful for good health. Whether it’s family or friends or myself, I’m thankful that the past year was a healthy one.
  5. Blue Bell and Pizza – One silly thanks, but I’m thankful for Blue Bell’s wonderful ice cream. It’s Christmas Cookies season for Blue Bell. That’s a happy time! And of course, pizza is another favorite food of mine. I’m very thankful that I found some great pizza around Tallahassee over the last year.

What makes you thankful this year?

What Should Tallahassee Eat? – Grazie’s Artisan Pizza & Pasta

Grazie’s Artisan Pizza & Pasta (Tallahassee, FL) Review

By William Kristoph

After reading my friend’s (and Tallahassee’s most prolific food blogger) Mike’s review of Grazie’s Pizza yesterday in the Tallahassee Democrat I just had to give it a try. Grazie’s Artisan Pizza & Pasta website I called in my to go order and showed up about 25 minutes later on my way home. The cashier was friendly and quickly had my order ready to roll. About ten minutes later, I arrived home and checked out the contents of the pizza boxes. At first glance it was obvious that there had been care put into each pizza. The toppings were fresh and the crust looked perfect. But how did the pizzas taste?
