Boise Has Amazing Lasagna
In Season 1, Episode 9 we explore and taste the delicious recipes of the well-known little eatery on Vista Ave. Known for their home cooked meals, and their out of the world lasagna and desserts, the Owners, Paul and Mary Jean Wegner make Cucina di Paolo a MUST to dine in when in Boise.
When we first moved to The Bench in Boise one of the first things we noticed was Betty the Washerwoman, a mechanical woman washing clothes far above the cozy little Cucina di Paolo. We noticed she was dressed for the season and each month we anticipated her next costume. From a spring cleaning outfit, to a school teacher to the Easter Bunny Betty has yet to disappoint.
After months of passing and noticing a constant full parking lot in front of Cucina di Paolo we decided to check it out ourselves. We were not dissappointed. The cozy restaurant is typically full at lunch and dinner with customers waiting in line to order. The place is bursting with energy as Paul Wegner bustles around the kitchen preparing his delicious recipes while Mary Jean takes orders, prepares her scrumptous desserts and jokes and chats with the guests.
We ordered the most delicious lasagna and homemade meatballs and we knew we were in love. Not to mention the adorable side patio with plenty of cozy seating to make you feel you're right in Italy eating Mama's homemade cooking. And that's the feeling that Cucina di Paolo gives, great homecooked food, made with love by people who truly love Boise. If you haven't checked it out yet we highly recommend it. Let us know what you think.
