For years a friend has been raving about an Italian restaurant in Rockville MD, saying it has become his go to place for date nights with his wife. Recently, I was at a nearby Marriott attending a convention. Being just a few miles away gave me the opportunity to dine at Il Pizzico. It is every bit as good as my friend said.
An Italian restaurant with exquisite food and scenic views can be found in south towns of Buffalo, right on the shores of Lake Erie. I know of people who go there every week for their Sunday brunch. I was not there on a Sunday, but I did enjoy a good evening meal at Lucia on the Lake.
