BEST Itailian Cuisine in Pittsfield
Back in the 50's and 60's, great Italian restaurants abounded in Pittsfield. Sadly, after the downsizing of GE, the local Italian restaurants went out of buisiness.
Like the Phoenix from the ashes, the Mazzeo's, a well know and respected community family, grabbed the guidon and became the best Itailan restaurant in Pittsfield, bar none.
Housed in an old, rectangular brick building, a former ethnic club in a dodgy part of town, Mazzeo's can cater to anything from a romantic meal for two or a large wedding. The waitstaff is very local and very good.
The food is extraordinary! For lack of a better phrase, ""Old Man"" Mazzeo (and I mean that in the BEST of ways) greets you, seats you and checks on you throughout your stay. You will be remembered the next time you come.
Not overly expensive for the meal, but maybe for the location.
Call for availability and reservations, the place can fill up quickly!
