The Place to Get Homemade Italian Food in a Small Town

By: Paige Grubb

Have you ever had the pizza people come home for? If not, you should stop by Adornetto’s. They have so many great options to choose from. Along with their great options, they have awesome features such as food quality, service location, and even some interesting history.


The food quality is one of the best considering almost everything is made fresh daily. Also, they are in the Top 100 for Pizzas in the Nation by Pizza Today Magazine. One of the things that they make fresh is their pizza dough, which comes in regular and sweet honey wheat. They also make their pastas, which include homemade meatballs, different sauces, and homemade pasta noodles. Lettuce and cheese for the salads are cut fresh each day to ensure the customers are satisfied with the products that they order. They are also one of the few restaurants that make their food from scratch instead of using frozen or pre-made. Not only do they focus on food quality, they focus on customer service as well.

Customer service is key to the Adornetto family. Their saying is “Customers first.” The business teaches each employee to work in a timely manner, work as a family, respect the customer’s wishes upon any request, and always thank the customers for their service and invite them to come back again and again. The service at Adornetto’s brings people back to Zanesville. They have people come back and tell them they had to visit their restaurant while they were in town because they love the food. People tell them that they crave their dishes and cannot wait to come back to town to get them. The company would love to have everyone come and would love to hear about their experience. This restaurant is very family oriented and always has been ever since Mr. Jimmy Adornetto opened up shop.

Jimmy Adornetto opened up the restaurant in 1958 with the help of his parents, Phillip and Catherine Adornetto. His restaurant was the fifth restaurant to open on the Maple Ave. stretch, and today there are more than fifty food establishments on the stretch. In the last 40 years they have made only minor changes to the menu. It is mostly everything Jimmy started the business with and is still made in the old-fashioned Italian way. The restaurant has always been a family-based restaurant; they want everyone’s family to come out and enjoy a nice meal and have a wonderful time with friends and family while doing so. Along with being a family-oriented restaurant, they also have a friendly location that is easily accessible.

The restaurant is located right on the strip of Maple Ave. It is very easy to find and is in a great location. The location opens for dinner at 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and closes at 10:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday they also open at 4:00 p.m. and close at 11:00 p.m. If you’re in town to visit on Sunday, they open at 11:30 a.m. and close at 10:00 p.m. It’s a safe and friendly location for everyone to visit. The inside is very beautiful, as well; it gives you the opportunity to relax while you visit and enjoy a great homemade meal. It is a very clean and tidy restaurant—they care what their customers think of them. If you decide to go visit and you would like to have some of their tastes to take with you, they have some retail products that you would love. They sell their Italian dressing in bottles, along with jars of their version of savory pasta sauce. They also do their pizzas in unbaked style: they come in three sizes and with any toppings you would like. Also, if you would like a gift for someone to use to come see the great location, they sell their gift cards; just ask one of their employees, who will gladly help. The restaurant would like to invite everyone to come try the tastes of their homemade Italian food.

My reasoning for telling you about Adornetto’s is because it has many great options, and they would love to have everyone come give their food a try. It is a great place to visit, with their great food quality, customer service, and family-friendly location, whether it’s just a few of your friends and family or a whole group of people. This restaurant cares for everyone’s wishes and loves to hear the feedback about their products and service. I have been with this family-owned restaurant for a few years now and love every minute of being a part of their family. It is an awesome place to visit and has the great option of dining in or ordering at the drive-thru. I would like to persuade you to come visit the place where you can get “The Pizza People Come Home For” and tell them about your experience. I hope you have a wonderful experience just like they wish everyone does. They hope to see everyone in their wonderful dining room eating mouth-watering homemade Italian food.
