The entire CVFTA team visited Salamone's Italian Pizzeria on Saturday the 12th 2013. You can learn more about their restaurant on their Facebook page and website.
Salamone's is a traditional Italian styled place in a small town that is east of the largest city in the area called Rockford (currently at 103 S. Cherry St., Cherry Valley, IL).
We had originally planned to visit a pizza restaurant for none other than pizza, but ended up making separate orders. One of our members frequents the place and made the suggestion. We all agreed that it sounded interesting enough to check out considering it was local and not a chain restaurant.
Our mutual order consisted of:
Stuffed crust pepperoni pizza and onion rings.
Fettucini alfredo and bruschetta appetizer.
Calzone with mushrooms, green olives, and artichoke inside.

Upon arrival, we walked in directly to the bar area. It seemed comfortable enough with quite a few normal dining tables and wasn't crowded at the time.
|He was instantly ready to enjoy his fettucini alfredo.|
|The calzone includes up to 3 additional ingredients at no charge.|
One of the owners had noticed us taking photos and took a moment to stop by for a quick chat. It's nice to see that the place is family owned and operated. I'm sure we will return there again in the future to sample other items on the menu.
