On our way to California last Thursday night we decided to stop in Barstow for dinner. Our first choice was to stop by Lola’s Kitchen, but they closed at 7:30. So, we headed to Dinapoli’s instead. The interior is kitschy and then some. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much flair before. The place is filled with just about everything that relates to an Italian eatery and fire house.

I do have to say that the booths are cozy. There’s plenty of room to stretch out and unwind after a long drive.

The lasagna we ordered was a huge brick-sized piece with plenty of cheese and sausage and a delicious sauce. We also got a small specialty pizza. I forgot the name of it, but it had plenty of red and green peppers and sausage. Not bad, but not great either. The crust was a little too thick and doughy for my tastes.

The service was decent, but a little awkward. Our waitress was the type of girl who just kind of lingered. Like she wanted to chat but didn’t know what to say. She was nice enough, but overstayed her welcome a couple times when checking in on us.

Dinapoli’s was a nice enough place to visit, but I’ll probably try some other place the next time I’m in town.
