Oktoberfest in La Mesa
Costco Polish Dog to BBQ from Ray's Bitchen Kitchen

Gaetano's Pizza Quattro Stagioni

Since we played all day at Oktoberfest we had to get busy and run our errands the next day.
I firmly believe ;-) that one should not grocery shop while hungry, so Stan and I stopped at an Italian Restaurant for lunch before going grocery shopping. This restaurant is one we hit up once in a while. 
We like the tables by the windows. The road in front of the restaurant is a two lane-er and people go pretty fast down that road. It gets dicey turning left into the restaurant so we like to count close calls while we are waiting for our food. lol

We shared an antipasta salad with an order of garlic bread. The salad had plenty of meat and cheese with regular ol' black olives and some sliced pepperoncini, with tomatoes and cucumbers on iceberg and romaine lettuce. It was o.k. the Italian salad dressing was delicious. The garlic bread was nice and garlicky and crunchy.

I usually order, Baked Stuffed Shells, but instead I had a 9" personal size pizzetta. I ordered the Quattro Stagioni that has sundried tomatoes, artichokes, fresh mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. It was fantastic. The crust had a nice chew to it, it was on the thinner side but able to hold the ingredients.
The flavors of the toppings were a good balance. Their sauce is delicious and has pieces of real, fresh basil in it, yummie. I loved it when I bit into a sundried tomato, it leant that punch of flavor that jazzed it up a bit.

Stan had his usual rigatoni with meat sauce. When he's feeling like living life on the wild side he has ravioli with meat sauce. ;-)

Went home with some nice leftovers for lunch the next day.
