Bring your appetite at Joey Garlics in Newington, Connecticut. The portions at this classic Italian restaurant are huge! 

Joey Garlic's has a full bar with local and national beers. I started off my meal with a red wine sangria. Apps include sweet potato wedges, wings, calamari, garlic bread and meatball sliders. Our sever recommended the "Joey's Famous Eggplant Fries," so we ordered them. They were covered with grated cheese and served with pomodoro sauce. There was plenty for our table of four.

For dinner, I enjoyed their meat lasagna, one of their specials. This cheesy and meat-packed lasagna was absolutely gigantic. I was only able to eat half of it and brought the rest home. Other Italian classics on the menu include chicken cacciatore, chicken marsala, chicken piccata and eggplant parm. These meals are also HUGE, enough for another meal or two. There are also several salads including a wedge salad with bacon, goat cheese salad, meatball salad and buffalo chicken salad.

Joey Garlic's is also known for its pizzas. Create your own or order one of their specialty pies like "Pizza a la Carbonara" or "Hawaiian Pineapple Pizza." I haven't tried their pizzas yet, but I've heard they are very good.

Joey Garlic's has a second location in Farmington, Connecticut. ,
