– “Be Our Guest: At Yelm’s Pizzeria La Gitana, Customers are Family”
“Within the last year, the Yelm location added pasta to the menu after consulting with chefs from Romania, France, Italy and New York. ‘We have a lot of friends who work in kitchens around the world and they give us recipes and tips,’ says owner Marian Licxandru. ‘We worked for six months to get everything just right.’ The menu now includes spaghetti carbonara, which Licxandru describes as ‘breakfast with spaghetti’, and spaghetti Bolognese. ‘It takes six hours to simmer and do the sauce,’ he says. ‘We make it twice a week. We started out making one batch but now we make four.'”
“For Licxandru, guests are like family. ‘Whoever comes in here, they need to leave happy,’ he says,” by Heidi Smith, Thurston Talk.
