Sculpture Of Stereotypical Italian Chef Proof Of Pizzeria’s High Standard Of Excellence

MINNEAPOLIS—According to customers, a fiberglass sculpture of a fat mustachioed Italian stereotype recently placed in front of Gunther's Pizza has provided irrefutable proof of the restaurant's high standard of excellence.
