In Naples, Ice Cream Theater with late morning shows can be a fine present for your children. Foods include hamburgers, pizzas, ice cream sundaes and hotdogs.

Manchester Pizza and Grill is another restaurant with two identities. Its Upscale- Italian ‘sister’ restaurant ( next door ) is called Palazzo di Stahi. While both feature excellent food, Manchester Pizza and Grill focuses on Calzones, Pasta, Veal, Chicken, Seafood and Pizza.

It surprises me each time I go to Little Italy just how many Italian restaurants are there. We considered Sabatino’s however we both weren’t impressed the last time we visited there. Amicci’s was packed with a line waiting outside. It concerned my date and I that it was billing itself as “very” dinner around me. With the word casual in quotations we weren’t sure what that meant so we passed it up. We checked out the menu at Rocco’s and Germano’s before throwing caution to the wind and just going over to Ciao Bella. There was no wait and were able to get a table on a Saturday night. It’s a cute little restaurant. I could see how this place could be considered romantic with its small atmosphere and linen napkins and tablecloths.

Thirdly, the food is overpriced for the quality. The food is decent, but if you’re dining on a budget, you may be dissapointed. While the large portions could help to justify the price, and the food is not even close to the price of food at some other restaurants in town, I find that the food and service is simply not worth the price. For instance, the burgers and cheeseburgers are far more expensive than those at similar restaurants in the area, as are the alcoholic mixed drinks. The strawberry daquiris are very weak, moreover, and don’t even taste good. The waiters and waitresses can also be inattentive, and my order has been messed up on more than one occasion.

Go Downtown. Downtown West Branch is known for its Victorian look, as well as its specialty shops. There are several unique stores that are certainly worth exploring. There are also antique items mixed within the gift shops. While you are downtown, you might also want to check out Ultra Images Salon (ask for Chantel). If you are in need of a new holiday hairstyle, or have a girl or woman on your list who would enjoy a day at the salon, it is worth the trip.

When selecting dining chairs, you should test the construction and make sure that they don’t wobble. Pick up the chairs and find out if they are heavy. Heavy chairs indicate that they are made of solid wood. Besides that, don’t forget to check the chair joints.

Use the pool scoop to ‘rough up’ the water and make ripples across the pool surface. This reflects the light and adds sparkle and interest to the water.
