So I must admit, sometimes I struggle to come up with creative ideas to blog about. Today I've decided to give a big web shout-out to one of my favorite restaurants in Louisville: Come Back Inn in the Germantown Neighborhood of Louisville. Come Back Inn has two locations: one in Germantown on Swann St. and one in Jeffersonville, IN. The Louisville location is open for dinner only from 4:30 pm until 10 pm Tuesday through Saturday.
This restaurant is a great place to go for modestly priced Italian food and a casual atmosphere. I have been there several times and have never been disappointed with the service nor the food. I have tried a few different pasta dishes and all were very well put together. I have also heard from other patrons that the restaurant also makes good sandwiches and pizza, but I cannot personally attest to it. My favorite entree is the pasta gorgonzola, with chicken, mushrooms, and pistachios in a gorgonzola cream sauce.
