But on Friday night, he and 29 British men visited the Little Italy Italian Restaurant for dinner, where the prince “ordered the meat lover’s pizza, which comes with pepperoni, sausage, bacon and ham,” says the restaurant owner, Nino Buccellato.
“He ate the whole thing.”
After a representative called ahead and made a reservation, the group, dressed in street clothes, arrived at 7:30 p.m. and stayed for more than an hour.
“It’s a small town. Nothing ever happens,” says Buccellato, who was honored by the prince’s presence. “It’s a big deal.”
First Break in Two Weeks
The town has not even 2,000 residents and only a handful of restaurants along the quiet stretch of State Route 85.
Prince Harry, or Captain Wales as he is called in the military, was last spotted more than two weeks ago enjoying the nightlife at the Belly Up Tavern in Solano Beach, Calif., when he was training in nearby El Centro.
Since then, Harry, 27, and his group moved from El Centro Naval Air Field to the Gila Bend Air Force Auxiliary Field for intense, live fire training, says spokeswoman Teresa Walker. Everyone must bring everything they need, including food, she says.
“They’ve set up their kitchen, and they’re serving breakfast and lunch,” she says. “They’re all set up. They’re into their exercises.”
