Review of Three Great Italian Restaurants in Madison, Wisconsin
Salvatore’s Tomato Pies is located in the Tenney – Lapham area of Madison, Wisconsin. Owner and Chef, Patrick DePula, was raised in and Italian American immigrant family. His grandfather immigrated to the United States and opened a full-service grocery store called Trenton Unity Market in Trenton, New Jersey. He has a long history of family member in the restraint industry as well as bakeries and food provisioning businesses.
The first Salvatore’s Tomato Pies was opened in 2011 in Sun Prairie by Patrick and his wife Nichole. Nichole is a pastry chef. They combined old world techniques to make their delicious pizzas which quickly make them popular. They decided to open their second restaurant in Madison, Wisconsin in 2016 in a historical three-story brick building that is one hundred and sixteen years old.
They have received many rewards from local and national magazines and newspapers. Is it any wonder why they have a strong four-point-eight-star rating on the internet with over six hundred evaluations?
Fraboni’s Italian Specialties and Delicatessen, Incorporated is located in Monona, Wisconsin a mere sixteen miles from Madison, Wisconsin. The first store was opened in 1971 by Angelo Fraboni who grew up working in his parents Grocery/Deli along with his parents and siblings.
Angelo kept the family tradition of having his children work at Fraboni’s Italian Specialties and Delicatessen. Eventually two of his sons took over the business. They were the ones who opened the second place in Monona.
Now, the delicatessen is on its third generation of family running the day to day operations. They have kept on the family tradition much to the delight of their clientele. They have over six hundred positive posts online giving them well over a four-and one-half star rating.
Located just twenty miles south of Madison, Wisconsin is Benvenuto’s Italian Grill. It is a family owned business that is committed to serving only the finest in Italian food to their clientele. They have seven locations throughout Wisconsin that support their local community to give twenty percent of their sales to local non-profit charitable organizations’.
Benvenuto’s Italian Grill opened their first restaurant in 1996 in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. Owners, Khristy and Brian Dominick, moved specifically to Wisconsin to start their restaurant. The originally menu was for dinner only featuring wood-fired pizzas and pasta dishes.
It is obvious Brian’s philosophy to always look for ways to improve their food and never settle shows in their six hundred plus reviews on the world wide web. They score a four-point-two-star rating.
