***Apologies to Vinny and Johnny for this post being 2 and a half months late! For the first time in almost 2 years, I lost my BRIGHT SPOT notebook!!! I didn’t want to just make up the story, so I didn’t post anything! I FOUND IT!!! LOL
I was craving a really super colossal fabulous pizza before we got on the road from Myakka State Park, so I went ‘Google crazy’ reading reviews of all the spots in Sarasota that had pizza. Over and over again, this place kept showing up with top notch comments, but it was about a half hour away from the campground. I didn’t care. I was willing to risk it!!! OMG, it was sooooo worth the drive! I got a Mediterranean pizza and added mushrooms and onions…OH YEAH!!!!
Not only was the pizza fresh, perfectly prepared and baked, but the guys responsible for the masterpiece were wonderful! BRIGHT SPOT – Johnny has known Vinny, the owner of Palermo’s Pizza, Grill and Catering, where ALL ingredients are made in house, for 6 years. Prior to that, he was taught by his dad, also a pizza shop owner, since he was a little guy! First, he watched, then did dishes, then he got to make the dough…one of the most important elements of a great pizza! Some people were meant to make specific contributions in this life….Johnny was born to make fabulous pizza! From all of us who have been delighted with his destiny…we say a hearty THANK YOU!!!
And, Vinny, best of luck with your business and hold onto Johnny…he’s a gem!
