♫♫ When the moon hits your eye like a big Pizza pie…
How many of you just sung ♪ That’s Amore ♪ either out loud or in your head??
Somethings will never go out of style, and just like that classic Dean Martin song, when it’s date night, and I’m really craving pizza, one of the first places that pops into mind for me in this city is The Colesseo Restaurant on Corydon Ave.
Now Corydon Ave itself has always been a go to for my wife and I. We are both self proclaimed “people watchers”, and I find that on a beautiful summers night that we always end up walking up and down the avenue checking out the scene.
This particular night, we parked down the west end of the avenue (on Lilac Street), and enjoyed a nice stroll down the strip, until we came to that iconic entrance
The Mediterrano is a delicious pizza topped with spinach, onions, tomatoes, feta cheese, and chicken. I know… onions on a pizza when I’m on a date?? Well 1) My wife and I have been together for 14 years, so I know she always has mints in her purse, and 2) This pizza tastes so absolutely incredible that you might even be willing to give up that end of the night kiss just to eat it … maybe lol
The evening continued perfectly from there. I moved to the other side of the table so I could sit by my wife and watch the people as they came and went along Corydon. We enjoyed our pizza, we told stories, we topped up each others drinks until the pitcher was empty, the wait staff came quietly by and cleaned are plates as we finished them, and topped up our water glasses as needed, our waitress stopped by to make sure that our meal was to our satisfaction and to make sure that we were still doing OK through the course of the evening. It was a true Italian dining experience of great food and great conversation taking place over a couple of hours.
Once the food and drinks were gone, we wrapped up our conversation, I paid the bill, and we spent the rest of the night walking around Corydon and the surrounding streets, checking out the people, the music, and the architecture that surrounds our Little Italy.
Please do yourself a favour, and check out the Colesseo Ristorate. Make sure you bring your appetite and give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the ambiance, the food, and the conversation that will surround you that afternoon, or evening
