Review: Falcone's Italian Restaurant
During the hustle and bustle of this holiday season Nick, Xavier and I were finishing up our last minute Christmas errands and decided to try a new place for lunch. We found this wonderful, new restaurant in the Leland, Waterford Shopping Center called, Falcone's Italian Restaurant. Since Nick and I both are Italian we are picky when it comes to Italian food but we are always looking for new restaurants especially here in Leland. I had heard good things about Falcone's from the North Brunswick Magazine. It is a nice, quaint restaurant which makes it easy to carry out, order just a sub or slice of pizza or sit down for a nice lunch or dinner. We opted to sit down. One of their specialties is the Sicilian pizza. It is one of Nick and my favorites but it is very hard to find cooked correctly. We ordered it with lots of veggies. Xavier loves vegetables. There is a little wait time for everything ordered because it is made fresh. We could actually see them making the pizza, which was fun to watch. When it came out and was served to us we were in heaven. Thank you Falcone's for finally making a correct Sicilian pizza! It was so delicious, the crust was cooked perfectly and you could really taste the freshness of all the ingredients.
They were extremely friendly and nice, the place is very clean and easy to stop in while doing your shopping. They had a lovely waitress we enjoyed talking to as well. Falcone's has a very large menu of Italian favorites, including lots of pizzas, subs, seafood and pasta. One of their menu items that I particularly like and will definitely be taking advantage of is the "Overworked Mom Specials" which you order a head of time and pick up. They come with a half tray of an entree, two loaves of garlic bread, and a garden salad. They have many different entrees to pick in a $30, $35 or $40 price range and they all feed around 6 people. That is a great idea to offer especially since there are not a lot of take out or delivery places here in Leland.
If you live in the Leland/Wilmington, NC area get out and visit Falcone's Italian Restaurant and get yourself a slice of Italian heaven!
