Today on the Bite Tonight: Ciao Amici’s Italian Restaurant.
My brother is in town for Houston so he decided to rent a lake house in Brighton instead of a hotel. On our way back from a full family day, we decided to grab some grub. Ciao Amici’s is located on Main St. in Brighton. See how they ranked.
Atmosphere: 3.5 out of 5 bites
Price: 3 out of 5 bites
Quality/Taste: 3 out of 5 bites
Service: 3 out of 5 bites
Wow Factor: 2 out of 5 bites
Emigila Romagna: Sliced Italian sausage, tri-colored peppers & onions baked with crushed garlic. The huge hunks of Italian sausage were a surprise and I would’ve preferred them to be cut smaller. Flavor was on point and the crust was crispy and chewy.
Classic Pizza: House blend mozzarella and pepperoni. Nice sauce to pie ratio. Classic, simple, yet comforting.
We stopped in to Ciao Amici’s around 4 pm Monday and it was completely empty. Service was good, but we sat at the bar and waited for our pies to be done then took it back to the lake house. The prices were a bit higher than your average carryout pizza joint, but that’s expected when you get carryout from an Italian restaurant. Stop in and check em out!
The best part of the lake house was a bonfire equipped with smores!
Chocolate banana smore. Now, this is where it get’s interesting. My brother had a great idea to soak a banana in Jamison Irish whiskey (no rum on hand) then roll it in sugar and caramelize it over the fire. It was awesome with chocolate in between a graham cracker!
It was a great trip and I was sad to come back home! Thanks to my family for some great company.
