[Salerno's lasagna offers generous mounds of noodles with mozzarella and ricotta cheeses baked in a delicious meat sauce.]
It's been a while since I've had some good homemade lasagna – and my patience was rewarded.
Piles of pasta, mozzarella and ricotta cheese were layered perfectly with a tangy, sweet meat red sauce that covered the mounds of perfection. Salerno's does not hold back with its portions, or its side of crusty Italian bread. That said, I couldn't help but clean my plate.
My three dining companions were equally pleased with their selections.
One chose the chicken Florentine, served with mashed potatoes. The two chicken breasts, well-seasoned, is flavorful with a buttery garlic sauce. Our second guest opted for the eggplant Parmesan. Like my lasagna, it was generously portioned with six layers of perfectly sliced eggplant stacked high and smothered in mozzarella cheese and red sauce with a side of mostaccioli. They both said it was the best meal they've had in quite some time.
My spouse opted for the stuffed bake shells. Melt in your mouth, filled with a crispy blend of Parmesan and ricotta cheeses, and a thick, tangy red sauce, it met with rave reviews.
Salerno's also has several other options that we can't wait to try on our next visit – appetizers ranging from Salerno's antipasto, baked clams and fried calamari to favorites like chicken Vesuvio and baked cavatelli to three different steaks and seven different seafood options to specialties of the house such as pasta diavolo, penne alla vodka and fettuccine Alfredo.
