Petta's Italian Restaurant
Felix Petta and his wife Caroline opened Petta's Kitchen in 1951. Today, the Petta grandchildren oversee the restaurant, which now goes by Petta's Italian Restaurant. Despite the name change, Petta's continues to specialize in homemade Italian cuisine. The bread, soups, desserts, blue-cheese dressing, meatballs, and lasagna, among other items, are all made in-house. On top of that, the chefs age their own steaks and pound their own veal cutlets into pieces that are thin enough to fit in the food copier.
