Our early morning dental appointment two weekends ago sent us craving for good Italian fare. What better way to satiate our cravings than heading to our neighborhood’s landmark Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria – Papa Leone.
I thought I was not that hungry and was only aiming for a slice of pizza and sit down at the pizzeria side but we wound up dining at the restaurant. Papa Leone serves great Italian dishes and should you happen to drop by Manhattan Beach, you should check it out. Promise, you won’t be disappointed.
We started with bruschetta (grilled italian bread with tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic and olive oil)
One slice each of pizza topped with anchovies and mozarella
my husband’s stracciatella soup (fresh spinach and egg)
my pasta fagioli soup
what’s the best accompaniment of soup? bread!!!!
cappuccino for each to end the meal
We skipped dessert. We were belly-full (LOL).
