When I arrived at Tony Signoris
Italian Restaurant the sun was beginning to set beneath the tree-line. I could smell the
distinct aroma emanating from Tony Signoris, and as I entered was greeted by members
of the staff, who promptly seated me and were at my complete disposal.
I considered ordering a glass of white
wine, but since I had a bit of driving to do, I ordered a cola ($2) which was served in a
glass goblet. While I decided what I was going to order, I took my time to examine the
paintings of the classic Italian countryside: stone villas, endless beaches, and clear
blue skies. The lights were dim inside, giving the eatery a romantic aura.
The waiter placed a steaming basket of
fresh bread on the table, which I immediately began to enjoy.
For an appetizer, I ordered Baked Clams
($7.95) in a tangy oregenata sauce. The dish was sublime, and the bread tasted amazing
when dipped in the oregenata sauce.
I ordered Chicken alla Tony ($12.95) for
the main course, created with roasted peppers, mozzerella cheese, and prosciutto. The dish
was served with a choice of pasta or vegetables. I decided to go with the vegetables and
selected roasted potatoes.
The food is delicious, the staff is
courteous, and prices are reasonable. If youre in the mood for good Italian food,
try Tony Signoris.
