Di Cicco’s offers good affordable food

The area off Cedar and Nees has sprung up significantly over the past few years. Some of the new buildings in the area are a Johny Quick, a GB3 and multiple small franchises at the Parkwood mini mall. Last, but not least is the brand new Di Cicco’s.

Dicco’s is a well-known small Italian franchise owned by a local Italian family. This Di Cicco’s however is one of the nicest if not the best Di Cicco’s building I have ever seen. The freshly painted stucco building sticks out among all the buildings in the area. On the inside plants and pictures of old Italy surround the patrons as they sit around new tables in comfortable chairs.

The new Di Cicco’s still gives off the feeling of being in Italy. Almost every thing from the lighting to the walls reminded me of Italy. A group of five friends and I went into Di Cicco’s for dinner on Sept. 23. Di Cicco’s sets the example for a semi formal restaurant, which is warm and friendly.

“It’s very slow paced working here (Di Cicco’s),” waitress Britt Erickson, said, “Because people come in at very different times. It is good to work here, because all the workers here are very friendly.” All the employees greeted us with smiling faces and were very attentive asking if we needed anything or wanted more water.

“Di Cicco’s is not my favorite Italian restaurant,” Byron Erkenbrecher, ’03, said. “but I do like their red sauce items. My favorite item would have to be the New York Steak ($15.95).” The prices of items range from about a $7 meatball sandwich to about a $16 steak. If you prefer red sauce the recommended item is Nonno’s Pasta that contains chicken, green peppers and mushrooms.

“The work here is easy most of the time,” hostess Brenna Esoci, said. “I usually like working here (Di Cicco’s), because all the people I work with are fun and friendly. I’m glad I got to know everybody here.” The service was a little slow, but always very friendly.

I will return because Di Cicco’s offers good affordable food at the right price.

Senior reflection: Ashley Garcia

Fresno Christian High school was the best experience of my life. I transferred here from Clovis North High School my freshman year. At North, I was surrounded by people who didn’t have the same morals as I did, and I really was just uncomfortable there. When I transferred, I was welcomed with the kindest, most warming welcome. My very first day here, I felt as if I was supposed to be here all along. I felt at home. I truly believe that moving here was the best decision I have ever made.

What I love about Fresno Christian is the family environment, and the small school experience. I love that everyone knows everyone, and we always come together to support one another. I have made friends here that I will forever cherish, and have met people that I belong with. I never knew that human beings had the capability to be so close with one another until I came to Fresno Christian.One main thing I really appreciate about Fresno Christian is the fact that we are based on Christ. Every single day, on matter what the circumstances, we always pray and do things the way the Lord intended for us. That is not something that people receive in public schools, and I will forever be grateful for that experience I got, living my life around people who shared the same love for Christ as I do.

Something I will never forget is chapel. My very first day here was a Tuesday, which was worship chapel day, and I walked in completely baffled because I had never seen anything like it before. There was a live band playing worship music that glorified the Lord and people standing up, singing their hearts out in symphony together as they declared their love for their savior. I was completely stoked to be a part of that beautiful experience.

This year was my first year in journalism and believe it or not, it was a very great decision. Journalism taught me many important skills that I need in the future such as communication, writing, and disciplinary skills. I am so humbled and blessed to have Fresno Christian High School as my alma mater, and I will forever be grateful for this school shaping me into the person I am today.
