A Tuesday night date night?!?! We are getting wild and crazy over here and we even got into real clothes, brushed our hair and I went the extra mile and plucked my uni-brow. I really wanted to impress him.
We were invited to do a food review at Terra Mia and tonight was going to be the night when the magic happened. You know I would never lie to you guys and you know that I am a little bit obsessed with delicious food so when I tell you that this place is the bomb.com, I am telling you the 100% truth….cross my heart.
The interior is beautiful. I love all of the natural light, the trees and Billy loves that there was a TV that was playing the Bulls game.
I completely forgot about our surroundings and fell victim to complete tunnel vision when our food was brought out. Billy tried asking me how my day was but I asked him to please wait until I had eaten my half of bruschetta (probably my favorite food in the world) until we talked about anything.
Crusty on the outside, doughy on the inside with the right blend of spices, tomatoes and olive oil. The owner is originally from Italy and so I am pretty sure this is as authentic as it gets in the US. PS the staff is my favorite. So friendly and I pretty much want to be best friends with them.
I chose the ‘Contandina’ which was a margherita pizza with mushrooms, eggplant (not olives, even though it looks like they are), peppers and artichoke. I was risky with this one (I have never had eggplant….I was a deprived child) and loved every bite. It tasted so fresh, the crust was thin and the mozzarella cheese is made daily in the restaurant. Doesn’t get better than that folks.
I think I loved it a little more than a human should. Swimming makes me hungry and carbs make me happy and cheese makes my eyes bulge out of their sockets. Scroll through the picture quickly and don’t you dare count how many chins I have.
Billy chose ‘That’s Amore’ which is a Margherita pizza with sausage, smoked bacon and italian salami. He described it as “I now understand your undying love for this place and we can eat here every night for the rest of our life.”
Um, please have a moment of silence for the gelato that I am about to display to you. We were too full last night (I know that is hard to believe) but I have had it many times before and it is to die for.
This is true happiness in this photo. It doesn’t get better than two pizzas and bruschetta within arms reach. I don’t know why I decided to stand up for the picture but I think it was because the b-dawgity dawg was looking mighty fine and I needed an excuse to get closer.
I was going to branch out and try one of their salads, pasta, calzones or sandwich items but I couldn’t leave my beloved pizza. I do have to say that everything that passed by our eyes looked phenominal and next time I will just have to get the pizza with a side of pasta and make Billy order the salad (and naturally I would eat half of his food).
and the best news is……………
