If you've been waiting for a good , REAL Italian restaurant to show up in St. Cloud, our wait is over. Zaffiro's Pizzeria and Bar opens today (Monday) at the Marcus Parkwood Theatres. The addition of the restaurant is part of a larger remodeling of the entire theatre, that includes new seats and a complete revamp of all the auditoriums. You can read more about that here.

Not only do they serve the food in the restaurant, but with Zaffiro's Express, in the hall on your way to the auditoriums, you can get selected items off the menu and take it right into the theatre with you, including their awesome pizzas and beer or wine.

As you know, I'm a major fan of a great pizza, and when Zaffiro's asked us to a private pre-launch party, we couldn't turn it down. We had the opportunity to share the unique experience with some of our listeners last week. We ordered pretty much everything off the menu, including 4 pizzas.
