On our trek around Northern Arizona
a few weeks ago, we landed at Strombolli's
right around dinner time. Driving can make you hungry, but so can not
eating all day. We know this restaurant has been here for awhile, because
we dined here a few years ago. And it was just as we remembered it --
Kind of okay.
The State of Arizona comprises the extreme south-western portion of the United States. It is bounded on the north by Utah, on the east by New Mexico, on the south by Mexico, and on the west by California and Nevada.
We walked in to a dimly lit dining area, very
small and cozy. The hostess had shown us to our table immediately, and
our server was very prompt at bringing our drinks and taking our order.
A salad's arrival quickly followed our drinks, and we weren't a minute
without anything we needed.
Though when the main course arrived,
this is where we went into the realm of mediocrity. I've said it many
times before, the marinara sauce can make or break a dish. And there are
three types -- The really good sauce, the really bad sauce, and the average
sauce (the kind you buy in a jar at the grocery store). This fell into
the category of average, and tasted very jar-like.
were extremely satisfied with all other aspects, the food would not be
the luring factor at Strombolli's.
Strombolli's is located at
1435 S. Milton Road in Flagstaff.
