  Our oven is named after my Italian (Sicilian) Born Grandmother Carmella Ardito. She along with my Grandfather Joseph moved upstate to Groton, NY in the early 50’s. Together they purchased and ran ‘Don’s Restaurant’. Joe ran the Bar and Carmella ran the kitchen and Real Italian food was introduced to Groton NY!
Our wood fired brick-oven is a tribute to her memory and her joy of cooking simple, delicious Italian dishes….. Mangia !
