The Venetian Palace serves pizzas that are worth the trip

CARRYOUT

August 24, 1991|By Sherrie Clinton

You could go to the Venetian Palace for an Italian cold cut submarine or a delicious broiled seafood platter, or maybe even lasagna with meat sauce. But most folks go there for the pizza, which is terrific. The pizza is so good, it's worth getting dressed, hopping in the car and driving to the palace. It's much better than any delivered pizza. It's cheaper, too.

The thick, fresh dough oozes with fragrant herbs and cheeses. My favorite combination is pepperoni and mushrooms. A large 14-inch pizza is $6.50 -- with two toppings the price goes to $8.50.

The palace, with its shiny red and orange plastic seats, mirrors and imitation marble statues, also serves tasty broiled dishes. Try the two broiled Maryland crab cakes for $10.95 or the chicken Parmesan for $7.95. These dishes come with salad or two vegetables.

Family favorites such as a ham steak sandwich ($6.95) or fried chicken ($5.95) are also available.

Italian specialties such as spaghetti, lasagna and ravioli are also on the menu. Have some baklava for dessert.

The palace can get really busy on a weekend evening, so be sure to call ahead and allow plenty of time to pick up your order.
