Healthy Choices
  • Chicken cacciatore
  • Pasta with marinara, marsala or wine sauces
  • Primavera in tomato sauce or broth based sauce (ask what kind of sauce is used!)
  • Red or white clam sauce
  • Thin crust pizza with less/no cheese and vegetable topping
  • Minestrone soup
  • Green salad with vinaigrette on the side
  • Look for chicken breast, shellfish or fish entrées (ask about preparation)


  • Ask that the bread be removed from the table or decide on a set amount to eat.  Choose plain bread over garlic bread. 
  • Order a salad or cup of minestrone soup to start with instead of bread.
  • Watch those pasta portions!  One standard serving of cooked pasta is ½ cup; restaurant portions can add up to 3+ cups!  Split pasta dishes or put half away from the start.
