I am looking for the best garlic rolls ion Birmingham for a dinner party next week. I have heard Petrucelli's are good but have never had them. I would like to buy them already made and just heat and sevre them. Any advice will be appreciated.

    I have not been there in a number of years, but the garlic rolls at Leonardo's used to be fantastic. I have no idea if they sell them separate and apart from a take-out order.

      Thanks, I tried to call them yesterday but did not get an answer. They may be closed on Monday. I did find out that Petrucelli's sells them and that they are good but that's a long way for me to go to get good garlic rolls. I will try to call Leonardos again today..

        I second Leonardo's. They are completely addictive because they're floating in butter. What's not to love about that!!!

          The rolls are about the ONLY thing good at Leonardo's, but they are wonderful. Petrucelli's are good, but not as good as they used to be -- much less garlic these days than they used to have in their early years.

            I thought the alfredo was pretty good. I will, however, concede the point that everything with a red sauce tastes the same there. I think they use the same sauce, but vary the meat. They pour it over veal, chicken, add beef to it for a meat sauce, use it as calamari dip, etc.

              Leonardo's it is then! I called them and they said they will sell them "cold" with their garlic butter on the side so I can heat them up fresh. Thanks for all the tips...
