It all started with Francisco and Angelina...
When Francisco and Angelina Giardina arrived in New York from Polermo, Italy in 1912, they brought something special with them—their recipes. And once in New York, as word spread about the quality of Mr. Giardina’s spaghetti sauce and other hearty Italian favorites, neighborhood kids began calling him simply, “Mr. G.”
Today, in just four American cities, a few of Mr. and Mrs. G’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren are serving
old-world Italian dishes using those same recipes. Those cities are New York, Miami, Fairlawn, OH and Wilmington, NC.
The Giardina family uses several different homemade sauces in their entrees, including a Marinara made from a secret mixture of fresh tomatoes, purees and spices, and an Alfredo sauce that isn’t prepared until you order something requiring it. The meatballs are hand-rolled (often by Mark’s wife, Debbie Giardina, and his mother, Mama G).
Come dine with us, and experience what authentic Italian food is all about.
