Gourmet Italian Cuisine, or just Gourmet as most people around here call it, is a great local place, whether you crave nice Italian dinner out or pizzeria fare at home. In the restaurant, the meal starts out with a basket of various types of delicious warm bread. The menu is large and includes practically every Italian favorite you could think of. Chicken parmigiana being my favorite, I often get that, and they do a very good job of it. I may be picky, but I have found that many restaurants just don't get it right.
Gourmet is such a popular place in town that families often come for dinner, but the dining room is nice enough that you could go there on a date or other romantic dinner. The only problem is sometimes it can get loud, so it may not be a great choice for people with a hearing problem or anyone with a hearing aid (I have heard that while hearing aids allow people to hear much better, they do not work well in settings with lots of background noise). To the restaurant's credit, it used to be much louder before they did some interior redesigning. And don't worry if you're not looking for a fancy romantic dinner, the menu includes pizzeria food like pizzas, subs, strombolis and calzones. I would advise against the pizza though, there are better places in town to get a slice. It's the one thing they don't do that well.
