As per a usual Saturday in December, my husband and I were out and about trying to wrap up some Christmas shopping (pun so intended, so just stop your groaning) :). We had a Christmas party to get to later in the evening and thought we should try and grab a larger lunch to tide us over since small bites and dessert would only be served later. We wanted to get away from the craziness of the Polaris mall and decided to go down the street a little to a much quieter strip mall. We happened to remember we had a coupon for Carfagna's and decided it was the perfect time to use it.
But boy, am I so thankful that we finally did decide to try it! Granted this is fast food, but only in the sense that it is ready to go fast and you eat off plastic. The taste is all homemade, cooked with care and all the loveliness that you would expect from a mom and pop Italian kitchen.
My spaghetti and meatballs were also great and hit the spot. You could tell the noodles were homemade with their irregular shape and texture. They were just a little overdone, for my taste, but not a major complaint. The sauce had a warm, basilly sweetness, and the meatballs were just what you'd want. The meat was ground a little more finely than what is typical, but this seemed to help everything bind together.
