Carbs are some of my best friends, but to limit Italian food to only pasta, pizza and bread is a gastrointestinal crime – especially when we have some uh-mazing Italian restaurants in Springfield, MO. which can extend your palate quite a bit.
Take veal for example, or mussels, clams, carpaccio, gnocchi and Sicilian sausage? What about the stews, soups, homemade meatballs, and let’s not forget the brioche and cannolis?!
Great….now I am in the mood for some pasta alla norma…thanks. As I try to brush off my hunger and finish this post, I must say a very enthusiastic “Thank You” to all of our readers who constantly comment on our Instagram, FaceBook and Twitter accounts when we ask a question about restaurants in Springfield and which ones you think we should frequent. I really REALLY appreciate it, and so do our tummies!
One such question was posted last week, and it inevitably had to do with uh-mazing Italian fare in Springfield, MO., and this is what y’all came up with!
