Torrisi Italian Specialities

Tried the much touted Chicken Parm at Torrisi Italian Specialities. The 5" sandwich for $9.00
was just so-so. The Chicken Parm although fried did not have an old oil taste. The Bread was the best part of the meal. The chicken was moist but he sauce was tasteless.

The real problem was the 20 minute wait in a near empty shop. Once and done!

Parisi Bakery is close and still rocks.

  1. We went there today and had the turkey hero. Tasty, moist meat but overly spicy sauce. Why do some restaurants add so much chili flakes that almost all taste is numbed?
    We were there on an early Sunday afternoon and didn't have to wait for a table and got our food in ten minutes. We'll try it again but tell them to hold the sauce.

    1. re: BluPlateSpec

      Why? Because some people like spicy sauce, and thanks for what is effectively a recommendation for me!
