that's about how long Dona's Little Italy survived at the old Bruno's Little Italy location on Bowman Curve in western Little Rock. Super fortunate I got to try the perfect homemade dinner rolls with light fresh marinara sauce, the delicious Joe's Pizza (should have been Dona's but the printing company screwed up), and the delectable refreshing Italian Spumoni before the management recently closed the doors. I even got to chat and eat with the genuine Italian owner (heavy accent and all) who filled us in on how many other successful Italian restaurants he has, that his brother, Joe, has Joe's Pizza and Pasta Italian Grill in Springdale (which happens to be my most favorite Italian place in the Natural State), why Dona's probably sunk like the Titanic (amazing how most people think they can't eat Italian food without a bottle of wine), and what he's thinking about doing in downtown Little Rock. Although it was to be my last meal at Dona's, it was a luscious experience!
And, how many of you know the average life span of a housefly according to Newton's Home Page? Email your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org and the first correct answer to arrive, will win a gift card to Marco's Pizza! Deadline for entries is June 29, 2012 at 8 pm, CST! Winner (if any) will be announced on this blog. Good luck and maybe you'll get to try Dona's or Joe's real Italian pizza at sometime in the near future! It's gonna be hard to keep a true Italian eatery that plays Dean Martin music down!!!
