Italian Food is for sure a staple here in Central New York, and you now have a new spot to try on Auert Ave in North Utica.

Trulli di Turi celebrated their grand opening Thursday, and many already seem to be happy with the service. Their tagline is "casual service for the the whole family" and that's exactly what it is.

According to reviews, it's a fast, casual style restaurant. That's what sets them apart from others. You place your order at the counter upon arrival and can order for eat in, or take out.

Owned by Nick and Jonann Velardi, who also own A Taste of Laos, Trulli di Turi is serving up a menu consisting of authentic Italian cuisine, a full cafe with desserts and a "home atmosphere like none other." They have a bunch of kinds of cookies, cannolis and milkshakes (that look to die for!)

They're open Monday through Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm and on Sunday's from 9 am to 2 pm.

Here's just some of the feedback from customers. It's safe to say you'll definitely need to give it a try.
