At Nonna Silvia's Trattoria and Pizzeria in Park Ridge, heart-shaped pizzas have become a Valentine's Day tradition -- ever since a customer requested one for his wife nine years ago, said owner and chef John Giannini.
... "A lot of husbands will bring a pizza home for their wives. It's a nice touch," Giannini said.
The pizzas are hand-rolled just like any other that the restaurant serves up, and a variety of toppings are available.
... "The dough is our canvas, the sauce is our paint," he said.
You gotta love that statement.
For romantic diners who aren't in the mood for pizza, Nonna Silvio's offers another option: red, heart-shaped raviolis.
