buffetbuster made a good suggestion about trying other Old Forge places and adding to this thread.
I got a chance to stop at salerno's the other evening, http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=1682
Salerno's has a great menu compared to most Old Forge places. Steaks, seafood, sandwiches and nightly specials. but I always go for the authentic Old Forge cuisine. Tripe, sofritto, and pasta. I have to be honest, Salerno's pizza is not even on my radar screen.
We ordered 6 cuts of red. The crust was an undercooked shell that was puffy, soft and chewy. The sauce was very tasty but the cheese blend was pretty bland. Ghigiarelli's wins this one hands down.
Next up was a dish of sofritto(see description above). Salerno's is cubed very small and seasoned to perfection. That extra little bit of rosemary gave Salerno's the win on this dish. But both were excellent and true Old Forge Cuisine.
Now the reason why everyone should go to salerno's, the Fusilli. Each piece of pasta is hand rolled then curled on a thin wire. Very labor intensive. The sauce was very tasty with a hint of sausage. You will pay $12.50 for this dish, but it is well worth it. This should be on every Roadfooders "Bucket List".
Sorry about the blurry pics. The lighting was horrible. I tried with and without flash and these are the best I got.[/img]
