Giovanni's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Sherry B - Corpus Christi, Texas

Family birthday celebration for five. We tried the anti salad, create your own pasta bowl, shrimp scampi, cannelloni, and Caesar salad with grilled shrimp. Everything was delicious including the piping hot rolls. For dessert we tried the strawberry cheesecake, red velvet cake and lemon berry mascarpone. Yummy! Excellent service by Vernon James.

Waffle Cone Parlor

Reviewed By Barbara M - Copperas Cove, Texas

An Old-Fashioned ice Cream Parlor, and the employees dress the part; white uniforms, bow-ties and hats, just like in the 1960s. I take my grandkids (myself & daughter) there as a treat, often. The owner makes all his own ice cream and Italian ice. It's a well kept, tucked away secret in Copperas Cove. It had been opened for years before I learned it was even there.

My first experience, the owner himself offered to make me a fruit smoothie; which I accepted. IT WAS FANTASTIC, DELICOUS, & THE BEST I EVER HAD!

Heidi's Bakery is authentic, on-site freshly-baked German breads and cakes. I've been to Germany many times and was surprised to discover how very much like the original Heidi's products were. And the prices are reasonable. This is not a sit down cafe, but it is worth the trip if you are in the area. Buy your pastries, make yourself a cup of coffee - and enjoy! Or buy bread and make delicious, wholesome sandwiches.

Bella Sera Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Armenius919 - Texas

I love chicken parmigiana and can tell the quality pretty quick. With the fancy atmosphere and the perception of fine dining, I expected more. The group next to us looked like professionals and were ordering bottles of wine, so I expected high quality food. The chicken parmigiana was breaded, processed chicken breast that I could have bought in the frozen section of Walmart. The atmosphere was great; the food, not so much.

I like taking the family here every so often for breakfast. It is always good food with good service. It is the “ole time” country diner. Great skillet meals. A definite go to at least one time to try some good old fashioned food..

Reviewed By Bill P - Copperas Cove, Texas

Black Meg 43 has the best food... No questioning that. But, their staff that works the counter needs to listen or watch when people are having trouble with the Ketchup and refill it or give the packages! Again... great food but needs improvement on keeping the counter ready at all times!

My friend had been talking about Fries,she loves the food. I flew into town and I had to try it. I was not disappointed. The service was excellent very friendly and helpful!

German Imbiss

Reviewed By luvsmntry - Copperas Cove, Texas

First they don't sell beer. I got the jager schnitzel, didn't care for the gravy at all. It had a very creamy flavor. I ordered a side of the oxtail soup, it was very thick I could have eaten it with a fork. My son ordered the cordon blu with pomme fritz (fries) which tasted like oven fries soaked in season salt. Nothing close to German food, very disappointed

Food is great. Prices are good. To go is the way to go. I've never been able to eat the whole to go meal all at once. Eat half tonight, the rest for lunch tomorrow!
