She had already been to Bella Monica, so she was already familiar with how things work there and made sure to order us extra gluten-free focaccia bread before I even arrived – so glad she did, as it was easily the best bread I have had the pleasure of eating in two years.
It was definitely blogger night at Bella Monica last night – Marlow from Gluten Hates Me was also eating there! She stopped by our table after the meal and we ended up chatting for an hour. I have never gotten to hang out with other bloggers before and it was such a cool experience, especially since I’m such a newbie to the blog world.

Thanks, ladies, for being so welcoming and friendly!
Added bonus – Pam knew the manager, who stopped by and talked to us for awhile and even sent us each home with a very special eggplant dish. It was very thinly sliced eggplant that was breaded and fried, then wrapped around cheese and topped with Nana’s gravy (I swear, I could eat buckets of that sauce). Hubs and I dug in the moment I got home, and then enjoyed the leftovers for lunch today! So incredibly good.
If you don’t live in the area to visit Bella Monica, be sure to check your grocery store’s freezer section for their pizzas to get a little taste To find a location near you that carries them, check out their store locator.
Thanks to Pam, Marlow and everyone at Bella Monica for a wonderful gluten-free evening!
