A’Pizze Tuscan Grill replaces Barone Tuscan Grill in the Center Square Road strip mall, which I gave a very lukewarm review of last June. Although the food was generally acceptable (if not exceptional) at Barone’s, service was consistently a problem and many issues and rumors about the operation abounded. Therefore it wasn’t a huge surprise when Barone’s closed its doors, and word hit the area that Chef Mimmo of Toscana Mullica Hill would be opening a new pizza/Italian restaurant in its place.

The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
