Mall shoppers and weary travelers refuel at this food court mainstay for quick, affordable Italian cuisine.. In Short Founded as an Italian grocery in 1959 Brooklyn, this family-owned chain has since morphed into the world's largest shopping mall-based eatery, with additional locations in airports, train stations and college campuses. On-the-go diners line up cafeteria style around exhibition kitchens to choose from ready-made, New York-style pizza slices, calzones, garlic knots and Neapolitan standards, such as lasagna, chicken parmigiana and baked ziti. Most locations offer communal seating in a casual, bus-your-own-table setting.
Just stick with the pizza!.
When I went thru the line to order I was told a breast of chicken parmesan, side of pasta, & a side salad would be $7.25. But when I got to the cash register they tried to charge me extra for the chicken, saying the side of pasta & small salad were $7.25 & the chicken was extra. So I gave up my chicken parm & forked out $7.25 + tax for pasta & salad so as not to make a scene. If I ever stop there again I'll just stick w/ a freakin' pizza slice!
