In 1972, Carlo & Jean Giorlando opened a neighborhood po-boy shop, where you would often find Nonna, Jean’s mother, talking to customers and busing tables. In 1985, their son, John Giorlando started working with his parents. In 2003, after 18 years, Carlo’s health began to decline, so John & his brother Paul Giorlando became partners and purchased the restaurant. With John’s 18 years and Paul’s 30 years of restaurant experience, they began to add their own unique recipes and talents to the business.
In 2008, John married his wife Dana, and together they expanded the business into a full service restaurant.
Now the three work together to serve the best of our family’s Italian recipes made from scratch daily. Our menu includes po-boys, seafood, daily features and our favorite Italian dishes. For over 40 years, our regulars have told us we have the best roast beef po-boy ever. Just come in and ask them! We are a family owned, and most importantly family run, local establishment. Our restaurant doors never open unless a Giorlando is on the property and over seeing everything. As a casual, family oriented restaurant, we welcome all to dine in our home.
John & Dana’s two older daughters Zoie & Bailey are the third generation to help out around the restaurant. Our future owner, Giada Giorlando, was born in 2009 & you can often catch her running around.
Thank you for dining with us & we hope to see you again soon!
