Back to Patricia’s

We were first introduced to Patricia’s few years back when we celebrated a friend’s birthday there. What we remember from that night was the great service, variety of options and large portions of delicious food. While we have some favorite places nearby for pizza and pasta, we decided to treat ourselves to date night and went to Patricia’s. … More Back to Patricia’s
