COMMENT: We are ALWAYS Treated Well Here – This is “Our Go To Place” for
“Chicken Parmigiana” -- Hands Down, “It’s THE BEST!”
We ran into “Dave Colarusso’s” little restaurant pretty much by accident a few years ago and have been going there ever since. The quality of the food is consistently excellent and is always made fresh to order! If you want a great Italian dish for an absolutely reasonable price ($12.95), this is the place to go! The Chicken Parmigiana is my favorite! The chicken is battered and fried, then topped with a great homemade sauce and cheese then baked to perfection! It is always fresh and when you bite into it, it’s moist, juicy, and tender! Dave’s Chicken Parm beats all others in the area by leaps and bounds! The portion is very generous and the price is very fair. With the Chicken Parm, you’ll also get a side of pasta. In addition, I order a dinner salad ($2.25) – the salad is also always very fresh and the lettuce is crispy! “Everything is Absolutely Delicious!” And let’s not forget the basket of fresh bread with plenty of butter that comes with the meal too! My husband and I have ordered other items as well, and all were very good! I still favor the Chicken Parm though! Besides having the most wonderful Italian Food, the owner, Dave just has to be a “Great Guy!” – Everyone at Calorusso’s is “Happy!” We haven’t been fortunate enough to meet Dave just yet, but we did meet his son “Kyle” this evening. We were running a little late so my husband called our order in to have it ready upon our arrival. Kyle took our order and no sooner did we walk in the door, Kyle was there with our pasta and a great big welcoming smile! Everyone who works at Dave’s seems to be quite happy! We are “Always Greeted with a Smile!” There is the most lovely little lady who works there too; she literally runs around ensuring all patrons are taken care of like they’re family! Finally, we found out her name is “Naomi”. Naomi is the sweetest, kindest lady one could ever hope to meet. Naomi goes out of her way to make sure all is perfect with your meal and ensures you’re all happy too! Naomi “Does it All!” … She greets the folks who arrive, seats them, waits on them and delivers their food, takes phone orders at the counter, runs the cash register, helps the kitchen staff when needed, and cleans up! What an asset Naomi is to Dave Calorusso’s! Dave must be so proud to have Naomi as the front person for his restaurant; Naomi truly makes you want to visit Calorusso’s again, and again, and again! I can honestly say “I have never met anyone like Naomi!’ What a wonderful human being! Dave, “Thank You” for the great food! And “Thank You” for giving us the opportunity to meet Naomi.
