At Pizzeli's (see map) in Little River, Henry and I ordered a Chicken Parmigiana Hoagie to split. We both agreed, after we tasted the sandwich, that it was the best sandwich of that type we had ever had. One can choose either fried or grilled chicken; we opted for the grilled. Rather than serving two large chicken filets, the cook uses strips of chicken on the sandwich. The sauce was nicely seasoned and not sweet. Except for the possibility of improving the sandwich by using crispier bread to avoid sogginess from the sauce, the sandwich was flawless. (And the pickle added a perfect contrast to cut the richness of the cheese and sauce.) It was just an excellent hoagie.
Moreover, our waitress was pleasant, knowledgable, and efficient; the restaurant was spiffy clean and comfortable, and the menu offered many more lunch and dinner choices for future pleasurable dining. — A winner.
The subtitle of Pizzeli's menu, “Good Times, Good Friends, Good Food,” reminded me of my own 1994 title, Good Food, Good Folks, Good Times.
