Every year we make Sir G's our pre-trip meal. The food has an authentic taste all its own. Any time I eat Italian I compare it to Sir G's and very few make the grade.

Honestly If I didn't know any better I would have guessed our dinner was prepared my them! Bland. From garlic bread, to salad, to 4 meals... Nothing was good except the dinner rolls and I'm guessing they were pre bought! Don't waste your money!
