Cooking up Italian staples and baking pizza has been a Walker family tradition since 1969, first at a pizza franchise and now at their own Old Shawnee Pizza and Italian Kitchen. They use the skills they've perfected over the last 40 years to make everything from their Alfredo-topped ravioli stuffed with three types of seafood to their Midwest-style pizzas on homemade dough.
They first top their inventive pizzas with sauces such as the classic red, salsa, spicy peanut, or garlic olive oil. From there, they use their multitude of unique toppings to create most any pie their customers can dream up, barring ones that bear an uncanny resemblance to Burt Reynolds. They also cook up specialty pizzas such as the Caribbean Jerk, made with jerk sauce, chicken, onions, pineapple, and roasted red peppers.
Carlo's Copa Room is modeled after the famous Copa Room in Las Vegas, beloved hangout of the Rat Pack. At the Kansas City iteration, owner Carlo puts his own stamp on things while still channeling the old-school glamorousness of the original Copa Room. A spacious dining room and outdoor patio hosts groups big and small, where they chat over wine and martinis served from behind a shiny granite bar.
In the kitchen, the talented Kathy Fiorello (who also happens to be Carlo's mom) puts her years of Italian cooking experience to practice by creating a menu of flavorful pastas, pizza, chicken dishes, and more. Kathy, lovingly referred to as "Nani," works alongside the kitchen staff to prepare Italian favorites such as lasagna made from scratch and veal parmigiana.
