history of serving food

Our history of serving incredible food

In 1965, Hall of Fame Wrestler Ilio DiPaolo opened the doors to what has become a Buffalo and Blasdell, NY tradition and one of the most popular Italian-American dining spots in Western New York. We continue to delight customers with Old-World Italian recipes, a warm family atmosphere and pleasant, professional service. We serve:

  • Delicious seafood dishes
  • Grilled-to-perfection steaks
  • Authentic Italian food with our famous house sauce
We even offer banquet catering services, so you can order food from us for events, office lunches or any special occasion. If you're searching for an exceptional Italian restaurant for dinner, visit us today. Reservations are always recommended.
