Reader Dawn C. hit the tipline to say: "I had an amazing calzone at Reales Italian Cafe in NW Austin. The bread was light yet chewy and mine was filled with ricotta, Parmesan, mozzarella, spinach and artichoke hearts. Full of flavor and so was the red gravy for dipping. There was flour dusted on the calzone just like homemade."
