100 Things I Like: Ella's Italian Restaurant

Ella, the lovely owner of Ella's Italian Restaurant, taught me the best way to drink espresso—with a sliver of lemon peel. It's details like that which bring the husband and me back to dine time and again.

And, of course, there are the yummy factor, the creative menu, and the use of local ingredients. The other night, for example, we ended our meal with Candy Cap mushroom ice cream.  Yep, that's a photo of it. The mushroom grows exclusively in Northern California. The first bite reminded me of black walnut ice cream. I could be satisfied just having a dish of the ice cream for dinner. Yes, I would. Yummm.

Ella's Italian Restaurant is located at 1709 Airline Highway (Highway 25), in the Heritage Plaza Shopping Center on the southeast corner of Airline and Sunnyslope Road.

Note to FCC: I wasn't paid or given anything to write what I just wrote. Unless it counts that my dish of Candy Cap mushroom ice cream and a cup of espresso on the house the other night because it was my birthday. Still, I've been to Ella's countless of times before then. So, there. 


  1. If I ever in the area, I'll look for Ella's, but I'll certainly look for you first!
