Stancato's has been serving Northeast Ohio for three generations with its continued Italian traditions of meeting customers needs. We are still Family Owned, Focused and Dedicated to Quality, Value and Service. From the very start our passion has been to be the taste you'll remember! The story of Stancato's Restaurant makes it one of the most unique Italian restaurants in Cleveland, Ohio. It goes all the way back to 1938, when Pasquale Stancato began peddling his homemade sandwiches and coffee to hungry workers on the streets of Cleveland. While renting a room on West 14th Street from Sabastian "Sam" and Domenica Commerata, Pasquale met and fell in love with their daughter, Angela. On July 4, 1939, Angela and Pasquale eloped.
