Inside Panini's Bar and Grill's palace of brick and stone in Twinsburg, pennants, jerseys, and famed sports photos bathe in the glow of 31 high-definition televisions. Outdoors, a bank of four televisions hangs over a covered bar, the centerpiece of the full-service outdoor patio. To round out the pairing of sports and overstuffed sandwiches, Saturday nights bring in live entertainment. Panini's has hosted such acts as the Rocket Men Dueling Pianos, in which two astronauts drop grand pianos on one another to demonstrate the principles of gravity.

Jim Cucuzza serves as both co-owner and chef at Bongiorno's Family Ristorante & Pizzeria, where he crafts traditional Southern Italian food in a casual, family friendly environment. Just because the dining room and heated outdoor patio welcome casually-dress patrons, though, doesn't mean the food isn't gourmet. In fact, one of the compliments Chef Cucuzza regularly receives is the suggestion that he should be baking dishes like his chicken and sausage arrabiatta in some swank New York hot spot. Occasionally, diners will quietly confess that his homemade gravy trumps even their grandma's recipe.

For guests who don't know where to start, Chef Cucuzza recommends checking out a few of the menu's hidden gems. His suggestions included the halibut romano—encrusted with a cheese and bread crumb coating soaked in lemon butter sauce—or the calamari steak appetizer, a hearty slice of squid sauteed in with homemade tomato sauce. Though Jim's favorites are seafood-focused, he promises that the menus "[have] something for everyone. Everything I cook is to order, [using] fresh ingredients."

And by everyone, he even means pint-sized diners. The chef puts together a children's menu featuring kid-friendly Italian favorites. Meanwhile, adults can enjoy a happy hour every Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., accompanied on Fridays by live music on the patio during warmer months.

The menu at Rav's Creekside Tap & Grill is definitely extensive?patrons can order anything from calamari and 12 kinds of wings to half-pound burgers and new york strip steak. But ribs are their specialty, half or full slabs of pork that's steamed in beer before being slow-roasted and painted with a choice of sauce. And like the diverse menu, there's also a diverse lineup of entertainment here, including seven HDTVs and a projection screen for games, as well as karaoke, DJs, and live bands. Whatever the evening's entertainment, groups should make a point to check out the patio, which is one of the largest overlooking nearby Tinkers Creek.

Crowned the Best Irish Pub of 2010 by CityVoters, Brubaker's serves up an extensive menu of pub edibles alongside a lively atmosphere and TVs sporting the latest in athletic endeavors. Quiet nagging hunger mufflers with appetizers such as barbecue-chicken potato skins ($5.75) and the super pretzel with mustard, salsa, or nacho cheese ($2), or tongue-dive into a specialty dish, such as the chicken cordon "bru" ($6.75), the buffalo-chicken wrap ($5.50), or the mega dog ($4). Brubaker's burritos wrap various fillings in the fresh-baked arms of nine-inch tortillas and come in varietals such as the Popeye ($5.50), a hulkifying combination of spinach-artichoke dip, tomatoes, onions, shredded cheddar, and ranch dressing. Brubaker's also offers a wide-ranging beer selection to indulge the fermented fantasies of Prohibition-era taste buds.

Inside Cafe Toscano's elegant dining room, with stone walls and wood accents, diners serenade their stomachs with authentic Italian dinner fare. Chomp on melty wonders with the goat cheese trio antipasti—a luscious layering of crusted eggplant, melted ricotta, goat cheese, and tomato ($9)—or the brick-oven pizza Bianca—mozzarella fresco, provolone, roasted garlic, and black pepper whispering cheesy pickup lines to diners atop a thin, crispy crust ($11). Much like macaroni art and Niagara Falls, Cafe Toscano's pastas are made in house, by hand, with the assistance of Mama Nature. Fork a few well-coiled capellini noodles, which wrap around specklings of shrimp, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach ($22.95). Or, invite the pollo Genovese over to the table to enjoy its eclectic personality, defined by grilled chicken, roasted red pepper, mushrooms, and pesto sauce on light-weight linguini ($22).
