For a little taste of Italy in this part of Imperial County you should stop on in at this restaurant just next to the conference center. Hot bread is baked fresh daily and is served with all entrées. Try the minestrone soup or the Caesar salad for starters. Among some favorites are the pizza, fettuccine Alfredo, or the salmon with bourbon sauce. Their full-service bar is a local favorite, and plenty of Italian dessert choices are on hand to enjoy. Deli items such as homemade sausages, meatballs, pastas and loaves of their bread also are available for takeout.
