Bites Nearby: Provino's Italian Restaurant
Provino's is a local mainstay, where Italian cuisine makes its mark.
You could stand on a corner and look around until a restaurant sign draws you in. But we've got a better idea. Each week, Patch picks a great restaurant either in town or nearby that is worth checking out.
Here is this week's choice: Provino's Italian Restaurant.
Provino's has been an Atlanta mainstay since 1977. The restaurant group has locations throughout Georgia, with two in Gwinnett County: Snellville and Buford. There is also a location in Chattanooga, Tenn.
The restaurant's popularity comes from its "old world" cuisine, so if Italian food is one of your favorites, this place may be worth a try. One of the biggest draws seems to be the restaurant's garlic rolls and house salads, which are served family style. The menu features a variety of antipasta, pasta classics, seafood and dinner entrees of chicken, sausage or veal. There is also a kids' menu, a lunch menu and a dessert selection, including Italtian favorites, such as cannolis, risotta crema and spumoni.
In addition to being a good spot to take a date, Provino's also hosts birthday celebrations and other special events, such as retirement parties, anniversaries or wedding rehearsal dinners. Most of the Provino's locations have a semi-private dining area where these types of events can take place. However, patrons should remember that Provino's opens at 4 p.m. or 4:30 p.m. on most days. So far, Sunday is the only day the Snellville location is open for lunch time.
As if all the food and ambience of this popular eatery wasn't enough, there is also an assortment of wines and other beverages. Pick your choice of available red or white wines, by the glass or by the bottle.
Provino's is at 2250 Main Street, Snellville. Open Mondays - Thursdays from 4:30 p..m. - 10 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 4 p.m. - 11:00 p.m., and Sundays 11:30 a.m. - 10 p.m. Pricing: Dinner meals can cost you up to $16 a person, and wines by the bottle range from $18 - $25.
