A new restaurant has opened up in Agua Fria (near
Blue Jay) as of four weeks ago. It’s a good one. All
but 2 of 19 reviews on Yelp are 5 stars. We have to
go over and see what all the excitement is about.
The place is called Puglia Ristorante Italiano, so
named because the two chefs Patrick and Zito are
from the Puglia region of southern Italy. They serve
(you guessed it) Italian food, including pizza, pasta,
Prices are moderate, from $15 to 20 for an entre.
That’s a little too expensive to make into one of our
regular local’s hangouts, but still well worth a visit.
Please join us for dinner at Puglia on Wednesday,
Jan 31, 2018, at 5 pm.
Note that this is an hour earlier than our usual
dinnertime of 6 pm.
The restaurant is getting a lot of business, because it
is new and the community is curious to try it out. So I
asked whether they can seat a party of up to 18 on
January 31, or whether they would prefer we wait a
month or two. The manager said that Jan 31 will work,
just arrive at 5 pm. They open at 5 pm and have
parking and seating at that time. By 6 pm, it’s
crowded. (If more than 18 of us show up, or some
show up late, the last to arrive might not be seated for
Puglia is located in the old Casual Elegance venue.
The street address is 26848 State Hwy 189 near Blue
Jay. A map with driving instructions is shown below.
The phone number there is (909) 744-8859.
