  1. yeah, i actually ate here a while back and i really enjoyed their tortellini cream sauce dish. I am a BIG fan of affordable and delicious pasta, and eddie spaghetti definitely satisfied my craving!

    1. I just ate there the other night with my Dad(who is a self proclaimed Pizza sob). W were quite impressed my husband ordered a white pizza, while I had the eggplant parmigiana, my Dad the pizza snob ordered a plain Cheese pizza.. We all had a house salad to go with our dinner. We topped it off with a home made cannolli. The pizza is as close to a NY pizza as any Iv'e had outside of NY. All of us were more then satisfied with our experience. There is a new owner who came out to greet us and make sure our exp. was enjoyable.BTW He told us he would be running a special on (a local group buying site) $8.00 for $20.00 worth of food. I think it is running today and tomorrow. Any other suggestions for me to take my Dad too. He really LOVES Italian food.:) Any thoughts on Vincenzo or Vinnies on Merrimon?

        Do not go to Vinnies. Very Mediocre
        There are so many better choices
        If you want great Italian food there is none better than Nona Mia's in west asheville

          Vinnies is ghastly - Nona Mias is the best hands down - I was at ES once a while back and it was mentioned a new owner? perhaps another visit is in order...

            I also love Nona Mia's. Fiore's downtown is also very good. Much nicer atmosphere than Nona Mia's and a little more expensive.

              I've gotten some great food at Nona Mia but also some duds. I love eggplant parm so I often sample it first when trying an Italian restaurant. Nona Mia's was very disappointing especially for the not-cheap price. The pizzas and salads I've tried have all been delicious, though.

              Thanks for the recommend of Eddie Spaghetti, OP! I'll check it out sometime, I love good NY-style pizza.
