Many of the students involved feel that the YouthMapping has allowed them an opportunity that they may not have otherwise found. Mesai Guangul, 15, of Cleveland High School is one of them. "I'm glad that people are giving us a chance, without knowing for sure that the project will work," he said. family While I was enjoying a two-dollar movie at West Seattle's own Admiral Theater, I suddenly became distracted. What was that amazing scent wafting through the movie house? Was I smelling a plate of pasta, was it a calzone? What was so delicious? I tried in vain to continue watching my movie, but found it increasingly difficult to concentrate. In a trance like state, I walked through the lobby of the theater and out onto the street. After wildly crossing the intersection, I found my nose leading me to the front door of Petro's Pizza and Pasta. I rushed inside and found part owner Pete Fotopoulos pulling a pizza, known as the "Petro's Special," out of the oven. It seems the smell of this pizza with Canadian bacon, and Italian salami was what had taken over my senses. I had no choice but to sit down and enjoy what was to be one of the best meals I have had in a long time. The Fotopoulos family open the doors of Petro's about a year and a half ago and the restaurant quickly became a hot spot in West Seattle. People liked the fact that not only does Petro's serve amazing pizza and calzones, but they also offer such Greek specialties as loukaniko (Greek sausage), gyros and chicken and beef souvlaki. I have to say I find the Greek entrees the most intriguing. The skewers of marinated chicken, served with tzatziki sauce in a pita with lettuce and tomatoes are fantastic as are their traditional Greek salads. On the other side of the menu one finds a more classic Italian feel. Pastas such as penne rigati, cheese tortellini and the baked lasagna are some of my favorites. The sauces are light and very enjoyable, especially when accompanied by good wine. Nothing beats a glass of red, a plate of penne and some garlic bread. Petro's also has a full bar for cocktails and beer. Petro's is located at 2342 California Avenue S.W.
