How about Ludys in Woodland? Give Doug a chance to spool it up. See if he can pass everything including a CHP.

Vince's is OK.

We went to an Italian place in Woodland once. Old school, family style, kinda funky, but real good food....

This is the place. Got a new name -


Casa de Sapore
Location - Court street near East
Entertainment - Bar
Price for 12" pepperoni pizza - $9.75
Slogan: Green vinyl is making a comeback!

Casa de Sapore is the place that used to be Pietro's. Pietro's was always a place to get halfway decent food in Woodland. For some reason the name was changed (ownership change?) but everything seems to be exactly the same on the inside- including the food. I went into Casa de Sapore thinking the pizza would be pretty good, and it was.

Casa de Sapore is not a 'pizza parlor' like the rest, but a regular italian restaurant (with prime rib, t-tone steaks, and baby back ribs for some reason). Because it is a restaurant, it is full service- hostess, waitress, bus-boy, mints with your bill, etc. This was a good change from the other restaurants, since this was just a dinner for two, instead of a strict 'eat it and review it' situation. So, with that said, one of the biggest benefits of it being a regular restaurant is the garlic bread. About 2 minutes after we sat down, they brought out a plate with some hot bread cut into triangles, and a little cup of garlic butter. I'm going to say that while this was not the same as a place like Steve's, where the bread has a lot of cheese, and a dipping sauce, this stuff is very good. Very good, and free too! The bread with the butter actually has a little bit of a 'bite' to it, not spicy, but you can feel something. They will also bring as much as you want. So for the garlic bread alone, this place gets very high scores.

The decor is somewhat interesting. The booths are a muted green vinyl. Not quite up to date, but what the heck it's an Italian place in Woodland. The walls are covered in some wood, and plastic plants and fruit abound. The service was good, our waitress was nice, friendly, but not annoying at all. The service you don't notice is always the best service. My co-reviewer did order a strawberry margarita, which she said was horrible- watery, with a strange foamy film leftover. So, I would recommend avoiding that.

I ordered a 12" pepperoni pizza for myself (co-reviewer ordered tortellini). The pizza was very, very good. Excellent in fact. It had lots of good, stringy mozzarella cheese, and the crust was good and chewy, like a sourdough. There was not a lot of sauce, but enough to add flavor. Between the mozzarella, and the crust, this pizza actually tasted salty, in a good way. My co-reviewer became jealous, and she also ate some of my pizza, which she said was far better than the tortellini. The pizza was excellent, but my only complaint was that the toppings did not extend far enough to the edge of the crust. Luckily I was able to dip it in my co-reviewers marinara sauce from the tortellini that was being ignored. The pepperoni on the pizza was excellent- even my pickiest co-reviewer who ate a piece of this pizza the next morning, said that it was very good pepperoni. Because they use good pepperoni, the pizza was not greasy at all.
  • Pizza Score: 9.5 much better than your standard pizza
  • Restaurant Score: 8- a completely re-model would be fine- but not necessary. The pizza speaks for the whole place.
  • Bonus for: Very good, and very free garlic bread

We haven't been to Woodland in quite a while. Let's do Casa De Sapore...

A ride up the river would be nice.

My last call today is in Willows, so Woodland would have worked. I may still be able to make Lodi, depending on how long the meeting goes.

If so, I will see you there.
