Franchised Italian

Italianni's, a member of the same group of restaurants that owns T.G.I. Friday's, styles itself as a family-style restaurant, which basically means that their servings are huge! This is the interior of their Bonifacio High Street branch. The last time I ate there was with my sister and we had the Spinach & Artichoke Formaggio and the Grilled Squid Salad. Yummm!

I love the interior, the table cloths and warm glow.
We had a restaurant in San Diego like that and I can't think of the name of it now to save my life. I think it starts with a B,lol...now I'm going to be trying to remember it all day, ugh!

It looks just like a family restaurant...that isn't a real fountain in the background, is it? I've looked and can't decide if it's real or a photo..

I'm catching up with my reading of your blog, Hilda. Missed quite a few interesting post in the past four days. That red tower of the Manila City Hall is very interesting. I like it.

Buon appetito, Hilda!

It doesn't look like a chain-restaurant interior, which is nice!

We don't have a fully Italian restaurant here. Just some pasta here and there. Oh, and, well, pizza.

Angela:
It's a painted mural of Bernini's Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi. Wikipedia has a photo here. Pretty good mural, isn't it? I love how the artist got the water flowing on the fountain.

Hi Hilda, It looks good. Hope the food tastes good as well. I've never heard of Spinach & Artichoke Formaggio though. Is it spinach and artichoke with cheese on top? Sorry I'm a bit fussy with Italian restaurants abroad...and with "abroad" I mean all Italian restairants outside Italy...Not many good ones in the UK, I can tell you! Ciao. Antonella

It looks really cosy - love those checkered tablecloths.

Hard to believe it could be owned by TGIFriday's. I don't really like that place... although it doesn't matter much b/c we don't have one here in Jackson! :)

Italian is my favourite food! I love the mural on the wall.

jill said...

That mural is gorgeous. Looks like a very nice place.

You are no longer an amateur you are not. Achievements. Greetings and love.

Why do they say "italianni"?? Italiani (italians) is the right word! Great shot Hilda, very well composed!
