Our menu is heavily influenced by recipes Nonna Rosa first learned from her family, who came out of the Naples and Calabrian regions of southern Italy, and served in our original family restaurant, La Cantina in Paw Paw. Dishes from these regions tend toward bold flavors, red sauces, fresh herbs and vegetables, and plenty of meat. Yet since Naples are Calabria are on the Mediterranean coast, fish dishes were also readily represented on the region’s menus, as they are on ours.
We hope you enjoy our traditional family recipes as much as we enjoy preparing them! If you have comments, questions or compliments about our food, please ask for a visit from our Chef!
