I drive up the Eastern Shore from Virginia to points north several times a year.
On my most recent trip in August, I stopped at Polidoro Italian Grill in New Castle, DE. I had gnocchi with prosciutto and it was divine. They also had local brews on tap and a good selection of wine, which, due to the long drive head, we did not try.
The food was great and the service was quick. Reasonable prices too.
A much better option than fast food on a long trip up the shore!
