Zagat has named the top Italian restaurant in 22 metro areas, and Jasper's was tabbed for Kansas City. In the accompanying USA Today article, though, salesman Jim Burditt from Bucyrus, Kansas, explains why he is committed to Martinelli's in Salina and Garozzo's in Overland Park:
"Martinelli's chopped salad is the best salad I have ever eaten, and it also has great lasagna and chicken piccata," Burditt tells USA Today. "Garozzo's is famous for chicken Spiedini and a three-way pasta dish that is so large, I dare anyone to finish it."
Where would you send someone if they asked you for the best Italian food in Kansas City?
