It’s a sell-out grand opening for The Italian Lady of Pinetop

Opening day for The Italian Lady of Pinetop, Donna Stabene-Sebek, did not leave her wondering what should be on her regular menu — it’s her famous cheesecakes, cannoli and biscotti that drew the repeat customers from over the years along with the new wanna-be-customers. Opening day, July 18 was a sell out. Closing to restock on Sunday and Monday, she will reopen Tuesday ready to serve those high demand decadent desserts along with her soups, drinks and a great Italian hoagie. Her address is 1641 W. White Mountain Blvd. in Lakeside, next to Suzie’s Consignments, but you won’t wonder where it is — it will be the place with all the cars.
