If the smell of fresh pizza dough is a sure lure, then you'll be hooked easily by the Italian Gardens, which sends that savory aroma throughout Kenilworth Park Mall. You can buy it by the piece or the pie; thick or thin crust; red or white toppings. You can eat in or carry it out.

And if pizza doesn't get you, something else probably will. The Italian Gardens features a fairly extensive menu of pasta with a variety of sauces, Italian specialties, salads, regular sandwiches and Italian and American subs.

Although it smelled terrific, we passed up the pizza this time.

The meatball sub ($4) is large and tasty with good meatballs under a thick sauce. The day I was there, it was served as a special with fairly standard french fries.

My young lunch companions liked the spicy chicken wings ($4.95) and a very good grilled cheese ($2.50). Although the wings are supposed to be an appetizer, the portion was large enough for a light lunch. They were tasty without being too hot.

The Italian Gardens seems to do a brisk lunchtime business, so be prepared to stand in line if you go at peak hours. But you do get to inhale the sweet smell of freshly baked pizza while you wait.
