Carabba’s Italian Grill has restaurants in thirty-two states in the United States. The one in Wichita, Kansas is located at 3409 N. Rock Road. It is a family owned business that was the dream of two Sicilian boys from Texas.
Damian Mandola and John Charles Carrabba III wanted to create a time-honored tradition of passing on the recipes their parents and grandparents used. Growing up they embraced family gatherings from birth to funerals as an excuse to eat. They have incorporated Western food in their restaurants from Southern to Creole.
Their ancestors came to America to build the American dream. They by-passed Ellis Island and chose to get off the boat in Galveston. They raised their families with pride teaching them how to work hard and live life to its fullest. This is the feeling you get when you walk into a Carrabba’s Italian Grill.
They must be doing something right to have restaurants in thirty-two states. Their reviews online in Wichita are close to eight hundred giving them and four-point-four-star rating.
Located at 1706 E. Douglas Avenue is Piatto Neapolitan Pizzeria. They trained in Naples, Italy under master Pizzaiolo Enzo Coccia. Their passion for pizza comes from a technique and tradition that is more than three hundred years old.
Piatto Neapolitan Pizzeria uses on the finest of ingredients. Their tomatoes are from California and are organically grown. They use only organic basil and sea salt in their sauce. Their mozzarella has not artificial ingredients, fillers or preservatives. Their dough has a three-day long fermentation process. This gives their dough a superior taste and texture.
Their oven was custom built in Naples by Stefano Ferrara and third-generation builder. The brick structure weighs more than six thousand pounds! Their pizza’s only take sixty to ninety seconds to cook as their oven is heated to nine hundred degrees. This gives their crust a light and airy consistency. No wonder they have over a four and one-half star positive posts on the internet.
Ann and Angelo Fasciano started cooking and delivering pizza from their home in 1952. After a year, they were so popular they decided to open their first restaurant, Angelo’s Italian Foods, which grew so quickly they had to relocate again. They are now located at 5231 E. Central.
Angelo’s Italian Foods closed in 2006 after serving Wichita for forty-six years. This left a big hole in every pizza loving persons heart. The food editor, Denise Neil for Wichita Eagle, conducted a survey in July of 2014 looking for the ten favorite restaurants that have closed. There were two hundred restaurants listed, however, Angelo’s got the most votes.
This inspired a long-standing customer to create a Facebook page called Bring Back Angelo’s to Wichita. The page quickly grew to over three thousand seven hundred followers. Soon there was a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for Ann and Angelo’s son, Jack Fasciano, to be able to re-open Angelo’s.
Jack brought back the beautiful oven and the amazing pizza his mother and father were so famous for. He can boast about the five hundred and ninety-one rave reviews giving him over a four-star rating.
