My previous Luigi's Pizza Fresca experience with their pizza and fries wasn't that great. But their chicken fingers were on point. So, the GF and I were in the mood for some bar bites and snacks, so decided to give them another try.
Cheddar Jalapeno Poppers [$5.75]
The cheddar jalapeno poppers seemed homemade and were nice - the breading was crispy and a cheddar cream cheese mixture was within. The marinara was a bit weak though, without much seasoning.
Zucchini Sticks [$6.35]
The zucchini fries were fresh and were also crisp.
Buffalo Chicken Fingers [$7.45]
The chicken fingers weren't overly breaded and were juicy. The accompanying fries weren't well-seasoned, but were thin and crisp.
Grilled Portobello Panini [$7.65]
Portobello mushrooms, fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers, caramelized onions
The GF was in more of a vegetarian mood so went with the grilled portobello panini. The innards were decent - fresh mozz, roasted peppers, rich caramelized onions, and hearty mushrooms. However, the bread seemed like pizza dough and the sandwich as a whole could have been on the press a bit longer, if a press was even used.
Cheese Fries [$3.45]
I was in the mood to carbo-load, so went with some cheese fries as well. The fries were limp however and the mozzarella covering it didn't really do much to add to each bite.
Overall, Luigi's Pizza Fresca has some good bar bites. Do try their chicken fingers, zucchini fries, and jalapeno poppers, but I'd skip their panini's.
