Greater Lafayette Food Series: Italian

This post’s trip mentally takes us over the big blue Atlantic for some of our all time favorite dishes. Italian food standards stand the test of time and fuel our bodies with all the carb-y goodness. Bring on the pasta! Fortunately, Italian food isn’t distinctly carbs, and these Greater Lafayette, IN restaurants give an amazing, rounded menu for all your Italian dish wants and desires. Keep reading for some insight on our favorite local spots to grab this delicate art of a cuisine! Ciao!


Bruno’s Take Out and Big O’s Sports Room

Bruno’s currently operates on a “take out only” menu and operation system due to COVID-19. On a regular bases, though, you’ll see this Greater Lafayette, IN staple crawling with transient students and Lafayette locals alike. It’s a “thing” here around town! Bruno’s is family owned and operated since 1955, currently offering Italian dishes in single servings or even family pans. Select an appetizer (Bruno Dough, you’re welcome), pizza, or and family pan of ravioli’s for the entire house. You’ll love this Lafayette, IN local business just like we do!


La Scala

La Scala is another local – frequented Italian restaurant, and it’s for good reason. These dishes are one of a kind. As a true chef – run kitchen, this literal farm to table restaurant uses local ingredients and competes for some of the best food in Lafayette. Here’s a quick example of one of La Scala’s best selling dishes: “Gratinee Del Mar- Shrimp and blue crab meat sautéed with asparagus and tomato in cream sauce with pasta.” Unfortunately, during this time, La Scala has chosen to close their doors to serve the community. Don’t worry. The owners/chef are still here providing amazing meals. Check out this meal subscription service, Good to Go, to get these one of a kind meals for a weekly fee and eat all week! The menu changes every 2 weeks, giving fresh a whole new meaning to your Italian dish choices!


Puccini’s Smiling Teeth Pizza and Pasta

Puccini’s has it all in this category. From beautifully flavored chicken dishes with no carbs at all to rich calzones and pizza selections to the classic Italian dishes you know and love, Puccini’s has something for every member of the family. The West Lafayette, IN location is currently open for dine in (with social distancing guidelines in tact) and is serving you with carryout or delivery options as well! We love this menu’s diversity!


Olive Garden

Okay, but how can you go wrong with unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks?! We have to mention this classic chain for this category because Lafayette, IN offers it too! There is seriously something for everyone. Olive Garden runs specials on a regular basis, giving this corporate business a detailed, personal touch. We’re thankful for a community with access to all palette preferences!
