Local Italian Restaurant (VEGAN options too)!
MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company
Last week I was invited to a local Italian restaurant in Daytona, to tryout some new menu items. We have eaten take-out from here before, but was very excited to sit down and try some new dishes. I took the family, and wanted to share some of the delicious items we enjoyed, and yes, I was able to eat entirely VEGAN!
What did we try?
We first started out with the bruschetta as an appetizer, and it was delicious (and vegan)! Dan and I enjoyed this, as C does not like tomatoes. I also had the house Italian salad, without the parmesan cheese. I really enjoyed the taste of the balsamic dressing .
Dan and C went for pizza and calzones for dinner (and C also had a salad, with just lettuce, and her LOL doll also got to enjoy it). Dan had the pepperoni & mushroom calzone, and C had a pepperoni pizza.
Since I already had their veggie pizza (with vegan sausage added), I wanted to try a new dish. I went with a “make your own” type of pasta dish, which they were more than willing to whip up for me. I had the (GF) Rotini, with the vegan sauce, and added spinach, mushrooms, red bell pepper, and (vegan) spicy Italian sausage. Was very flavorful, and I could only eat half (yay for lunch the next day). I also enjoyed a glass of Pinot Noir, but forgot to take a pic.
After we packed up our take home boxes……you KNOW we had to try some dessert! Even though I am Italian, I don’t really eat many traditional Italian desserts…..so, we went with colder dishes (since C LOVES ice cream). They both ordered Gelato, and I had the mango sorbet. But, since you really can’t visit an Italian restaurant and not get Cannoli, they brought one out and C tried it for the first time.
Speaking of dessert….if you are a Nutella fan, you have to try their SIGNATURE NUTELLA®CALZONE! I was wondering why they had so many jars of Nutella when we first walked in, and that is why! They said it’s a best seller!
Caylyn tried her first Cannoli
It’s also nice that on certain nights, you can enjoy some live music outside, and every night/day, the family board games are also set up.
Have you eaten here yet? If so, comment with your favorite dish!
