It's noon and you're in the mood for Italian. Head to Tucci's on Cherry Street. This Italian favorite offers an affordable lunch menu stocked with some of its classic dishes but in more manageable, lunch-sized portions. The Caesar Salad is always a refreshing warm-weather option, but if you're in the mood for something heartier, you might try the lasagna or ask for the day's special. The patio offers a unique, if warm, dining experience, and the restaurant's interior is also cozy and intimate. Inside or out, you can't go wrong with a lunch at Tucci's.
