Be warned, if you don’t plan to make a reservation, you may be out of luck to eat at the Ravenous Pig. This restaurant is an Aroma Italian Café and Wine Bar – definitely an adult’s night out! Just known to the locals as “The Pig” this restaurant is definitely not a cookie cutter chain that specializes in bland frozen food that is shipped across the county.

A little side note, the restaurant also makes their own ice cream, sorbets and sausage – talk about fresh!
