Casa D’Angelo’s is a family-owned and operated business that has been in the Cleveland area for approximately 23 years. There is a long and strong history to the success of the restaurants!
Where It All Began
In St. Louis, Missouri, Vince and Joe Cunetto, both pharmacists by trade, loved to make Italian style lunch using Grandma D’Angelo’s recipes for co-workers at the drug store. The rave reviews they received and the comments that they should open their own Italian restaurant were finally taken seriously by the brothers. In October 1972, Cunetto’s Restaurant was opened and Grandma D’Angelo’s authentic Italian recipes were introduced to the public. Cunetto’s is located at 5453 Magnolia Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri and has been in business for 39 years! It has consistently been rated one of the top restaurants in St. Louis.
Around the same time, James P. D’Angelo (Jimmy D.) decided he too was interested in learning to become a chef and traveled to St. Louis to learn Grandma D’Angelo’s recipes from his cousins, Vince and Joe. In October 1977, Jim opened Casa D’Angelo’s in Fort Wayne, Indiana. And, just as in St. Louis, Casa D’Angelo’s is thriving with a total of four restaurants in Fort Wayne.
Casa D’Angelo’s In Cleveland
Obviously, the story does not end there…In 1986, a young and excited James G. D’Angelo (Jimmy D.) decided to spend several months in Fort Wayne to study the culinary cuisine from his uncle. Jimmy devoted day and night learning the intricacies of the restaurant business. Upon returning home to Cleveland, he spent two years searching for a location to open the first Casa D’Angelo’s in Cleveland. In April 1989, Jimmy, his brothers, Sam and Paul along with Paul’s wife, Donna and their parents, Sam Sr. and Josephine opened Casa D’Angelo’s in North Royalton. This location was sold in 1996.
In 1994 the family searched for a restaurant to open, a second Casa D’Angelo’s. They found a great location in Macedonia on Route 82. The family worked hard to completely remodel the space, from the set-up of the kitchen to the interior decorating, before opening Casa D’Angelo’s, Macedonia in September 1994.
In January 1997 Casa D’Angelo’s expanded again and the restaurant in Mentor was established. It closed December of 2010.
D’Angelo’s in Twinsburg opened in December 2004. This restaurant has a fine dining atmosphere with a full bar and extensive wine list. The food is still made from Grandma D’Angelo’s recipes that customers crave. Again, all interior remodeling of the location was completely performed by the family.
