Lunch at Scolari's is a treat. The cook takes pride in his products and they serve tasty food. I ordered three items for lunch: the Classic Stromboli, french fries with cheese and brown gravy and fresh limeade. The fresh limeade was light, refreshing and not full of sugar. The wait for my sandwich and french fries was a bit long. Scolari's makes food for the bar next door at Lucky 13, so lots of people were taking their food and eating it at the bar. By the time, I was served, I was hungry. The sandwich was huge and good to serve for two. The meat and cheese was all stuffed inside the bread, very similar to a calzone. The red sauce was on the side, but I thought the sandwich tasted better without it. The bread was nice and warm. The sandwich was more delicate than I thought it would be. You could taste every layer of meat and cheese. The amount of the french fries were too large for one order. The fries were good when it was hot and the cheese melted and oozed. When it got cool, the fries were slightly mushy and the cheese was cold and clumpy. Overall, the food was tasty, but I am not sure if the food was healthy. The price of lunch was $23, slightly expensive for one, but good enough for two. I would return for a casual meal or for a late night run. Scolari's stays open until 3 am!
