All Is Right – Va Bene Italian Eatery

It saddens us when we hear about a local business having to shutter its doors. Unfortunately, this was an all too common occurrence in 2020. On a positive note, there were many new enterprises willing to take a risk during those uncertain times. One that evidently felt it best to let 2020 pass by is Va Bene Italian Eatery, at  8232 Mission Road. Their solution was to launch their business on New Year's Day of 2021. With a renewed hope for brighter days, it is fitting that their name loosely translates to "All Is Right". We love their positivity and are hoping they [...]

Italian Take & Bake – 1889 Pizza Napoletana

Life during the pandemic is certainly affecting most people's routines. Like us, many of you have had to adapt our dining out experiences to something closer to home. Home is where we all find ourselves partaking in the majority of our meals. Occasionally we will have a picnic, but these have to be done with a blanket since park shelters have been placed off-limits. The idea of eating at home is not a bad thing, we just find that the atmosphere of restaurants is a part of the overall dining experience. We know that things will return to some semblance of normal, in [...]

Frank’s Italian Restaurant – Cozy Parkville Dining

There is certainly something to be said for longevity. When we saw that Frank's Italian Restaurant had been in the same Parkville, Missouri location since 1931, it sparked our interest for a visit. While we were sure that the ownership has definitely changed hands, the fact that the business has survived, speaks volumes for customer loyalty. We dropped into Parkville on a Friday evening for a little miniature golf, followed by a quiet dinner for two. We want to thank Main Street Parkville and Frank's Italian Restaurant for their hospitality. Rest assured all opinions are our own.  Going Green Frank's Italian Restaurant offers [...]

Plentiful Eats at Italian Delight

In 1971, a brand new indoor mall opened in Kansas City, Kansas. People from all around the region flocked to Indian Springs Mall to shop, be entertained, mingle, people watch, and eat. Italian Delight was among the restaurants to call it home. For years this was the place to grab a quick bite or a drink in the mall. People lounged over their meals, while watching the crowds pass by. It was a place to be seen. Many of us came for the pizza. The hot, gooey slices came with an almost limitless choice of topping combinations. The bubbly crust was tender with [...]
