There seemed to be only one waitress and then three or four other people in the kitchen. All of the inside tables were full, there was a man waiting on a take-out order, and a party of 10 was packing in to a table set up in the center of the restaurant. The waitress came back to take our drink order, offering us a glass of wine or sangria; I chose a glass of wine, Luke ordered a beer. She returned quickly with our drinks. The sangria was delicious, fruity with velvety undertones from the bourbon. It came in a small serving, and I probably could have drank ten of them, but I happily sipped at my teeny glass of adult fruit punch.
A short time later, the waitress returned to take our order. She let us know about the special, a large 1-Topping Pizza for $8.99, and told us about the early bird dinner menu, entrees for only $7 from 3:00pm – 6:00pm. Luke and I were set on pizza though and since we wanted more than one topping we used the coupon I had printed from their website, http://lapizzamiapizzeria.com/, 1 large 5-Topping Pizza for $12.99. We made our topping choses and ordered a large pizza with mushrooms, black olives, spinach, ham, and meatball.
Luke and I chatted and stared at all the things on the walls, nodding to each other in approval. The waitress was running around taking care of other tables and passing by mouthing sorry, as if we were waiting too long – which we weren’t. The pizza took maybe 15-20 minutes before it came out to the table, hot and bubbling, and covered in toppings. The chef served us himself, placing one giant slice each on the customary pizzeria brown plates. We dug in immediately happily burning our mouths on the cheese and toppings.
