Cenci's Italian Restaurant and Pizza Bar at Wexford

When I think of Wexford, I think of it as one of the better suburban areas of Pittsburgh. Normally I'm not a big fan suburban areas because of the high amount of chain restaurants and stores and a lack of character. Sure Wexford has chain restaurants, but they have a lot of local stores, restaurants, and bars. This past Thursday, my friends and I decided to check out a place called Cenci's Italian Restaurant and Pizza Bar.

I thought the atmosphere was pretty good especially for families though based on some of the pictures I saw at the website, adults can also have fun on weekends at this place.

The first thing we all got were garlic knots. I would have to say these were the best garlic knots I've ever had. They were even better than the ones at Mamma Lucia's. The knots were crunchy on the outside, and soft on the inside. The butter, olive oil, and parmesan cheese really enhanced the flavor of the knots. I think the next time I order it, I'll ask for no marinara sauce since I felt it wasn't that necessary.

Our pizzas came next, and we got the mushroom pizza and sausage pizza. What I liked about these pizzas is that they didn't overdo it with the toppings, sauce, and cheese. They were perfectly balanced pizzas. I've had a lot of gourmet pizzas recently, and it's not really fair to compare Cenci's pizzas to the pizzas I have recently ate. With that said, it was nice to be eating mushroom pizza and sausage pizza again. They weren't too greasy, had lots of flavor, and the crust was able to hold its own from all the ingredients.

All in all, I had a great experience at Cenci's. It's a good place that caters to anyone from families wanting to have a great meal to adults who want to enjoy adult beverages. One thing is for sure; I'll be getting the garlic knots again.
