Penne with shrimp and scallops
If you ever have your fill of Cabot cheese, syrup and pancakes in Vermont, head to Sarducci's in Montpelier for some classic Italian food. They have all of the traditional favorites and use a wood burning over to really bring out the flavor. 

Start your meal with one of their salads. We went for the "mixta" with greens, black olives, tomatoes. You can choose from my two favorite dressings: creamy Italian or bleu cheese. Other salads include Caesar, Greek, spinach and apple & hazelnut. 

Lunch and dinner meals include pizza, pasta and panini. There so many pastas on the menu. Go for the traditional. They have penne bolognese and fettuccine alfredo or try their crab ravioli with shrimp or their "Capellini di Verdure," angel hair with spinach, sun-dried tomato, olives, artichokes and goat cheese. I enjoyed one of their "Pasta al Forno" dishes. These pastas are cooked in their wood oven. The penne with scallops and shrimp was sooo good. It's actually made with a cheese sauce instead of tomato sauce. Other oven menu items include baked sausage, mac & cheese and chicken breast over penne. 

If you're in the mood for a pizza, they have many pies on the menu. There's the "Roma," a carnivore's delight with bacon, sausage, pepperoni or go for the "Il Fungo," a veggie lover's dream with roasted portobello mushrooms, blue cheese, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese. 

Sarducci's has many vegetarian meals and gluten-free options. And yes, they have a full bar!
