I'm sure a dive pizza joint could be better, but not any of the dive pizza joints in Madison, and certainly not any in the "immediate area." What I was actually saying is that your opinions on food are limited only to pizza reviews - and I guess bagel reviews many years back. Your entire repertoire of food analysis consists of whether the canned tomatoes taste good and how chewy something is. That sums up the entire set of contributions you've made to TDPF restaurant reviews.
better italian food than lombardinos:
Cafe Porta Alba - which now serves pasta and meat dishes.
tutto pasta - the one in middleton, not state street.
trapani's - if this is a "dive" pizza joint, then rock on.
add to that list the tutto pasta subsidiary on king street, and the other joint on the east side owned by the trapani's peeps.
So "immediate area" means anywhere in Madison or Middleton now? Interesting mastery of the English language you have there. I find Le Bec-Fin and French Laundry to be better restaurants in the "immediate area" than Culver's.
Tutto Pasta is one step up from Olive Garden. Maybe you like them because you never were able to finish reading the menu of 50 combinations of bland before it was time to pick your kids up from your other favorite place, Chuck E Cheese.
But then again, I do find their pasta excessively chewy, so maybe it's just your cup of tea.
