Beyond Mediocrity

Members of my family have used Stancato's over the years for various functions, both catered and in the restaurant. Personally, I think the food is below average, but they deliver and with lots of kids in the family, it worked.

However, after the experience my daughter had today, we are done with them. She's a pharma rep and has given them SIGNIFICANT business. Today, she had 25 people waiting for lunch and they completely screwed up her order. Not only did they not rectify the situation, they were unbelievably rude to her on the phone. Imagine how she felt in front of a room full of people, all waiting for lunch. She is 5 months pregnant, and had to schlep out in the pouring rain to get Pizza Hut because Stancato's dropped the ball. This isn't the first time they've done this to her, but it will certainly be the last.

Get it together, Stancato's.




I disliked the service and food and the hostess was rude our waitress was not attentive also no lactose free sauces besides oil n garlic ew I will never return food was awful!

Favorite Italian Restaurant in Cleveland

When I'm craving Italian, there's only one place I think to go and that's Stancato's. The food there is amazing, I've never been disappointed with a meal. The prices are fair and they have specials every night which I love. In my opinion, it's definitely one of the best restaurants in Cleveland. Stancato's also has an amazing happy hour, and since it's close by my work, my friends and I will meet there for appetizers and drinks. Our favorite night to go is Wednesday because it's ladies night so we take advantage of the drink specials and complimentary pizza and salad. If you haven't tried Stancato's yet, I suggest you get dinner there tonight, you'll definitely become addicted and keep going back!



Great Authentic Italian Food

I just went to Stancato's for the lunch buffet today. There are actually 2 buffets, a salad, soup and pizza buffet as well as another buffet with penne pasta, 6 different sauces, mashed potatoes, pierogies, meatballs, sausage, stuffed shells and more. The food was fantastic and I can't believe how many choices there were. The salad buffet was also really good, I tried the sweet and tangy dressing and I loved it. I definitely think Stancato's is one of the best Italian restaurants in Cleveland and I will be recommending the lunch buffet to all of my friends who live in the area. My work has also used their catering services for company events and it always arrived hot and on time. The food is just plain delicious!



Hospitable Catering Service!

Thanks to Stancato's Italian Restaurant in Parma, I was able to host my 40th birthday party dinner on short notice. Their banquet room was just the right size for all my guests and has one of the best catering services in the Cleveland, Ohio area. Thanks to the Stancato's staff for catering to my needs on such short notice. Bravo!

Best Catering Service in Cleveland

Thanks to Stancato's Italian Restaurant in Parma, I was able to host my 40th birthday party dinner recently with very little notice. Their Festivali banquet room was just the right size for all my guests and has one of the best catering services in the Cleveland, Ohio area. Thanks to the staff for meeting my needs without much notice. Bravo!



Great Buffet

Stancato's in Parma has one of the best restaurant buffets in Cleveland. They have a great selection, including one of their most popular items, the portabello ravioli with basil lobster cream sauce. That dish is absolutely fabulous. Their lunch buffet is also a great choice for good food at a good price. They have fish and mussels on Friday - and the lobster crab bisque is really tasty!

Great Pizza and Sauce!

One of my favorite Cleveland area restaurants is Stancato's. Their pasta sauces are homemade and so delicious, I especially love the Rosa Maria. I've never had a disappointing meal there and everyone who I've invited has loved it and went back.

Great Lunch Buffet

Stancato's in Parma has a great lunch buffet. They have a great selection, including pasta, pizza, soups, and a full salad bar. If you go to the Monday night buffet, they have one of my favorite items, the portabello ravioli with basil lobster cream sauce. That dish is absolutely fabulous!



Great Italian Food in the Cleveland Area

The service is great and the prices are excellent for the amount of food you get. Stancato's is definitely a must-try if you are in the Cleveland area and looking for an awesome dining experience. The lunch buffet is cheap (only $7.99) and so delicious, my work friends and I have gone there a few times on our lunch break.

Best Cleveland Italian Restaurant

Great, cheap lunch buffet that has some of the best Italian food in Cleveland. The pizza is pretty standard-- you can choose from either pepperoni or cheese-but it's really done well. Especially the crust. Great traditional Italian soups make dining here on a cold winter's day a great idea. The entrees are always tasty. A great selection of sauces too! Stancato's sauces are so good, they bottle it and sell it at local grocery stores. You must try the marinara over the pasta.

Stancato's Restaurant Review

If you are looking for great prices and good Italian cuisine go no further than 7380 State Rd in Cleveland, Ohio because Stancato's is one of Cleveland Ohio's best restaurants.

Top Italian Restaurant in Cleveland Ohio

Stancato?s has a huge lunch buffet everyday (at least I think?I?ve only been there on weekdays). It?s all pretty hearty stuff. If you?re looking for good Italian food among Cleveland's area restaurants and lots of it, this is the place. There?s pasta, soup, and sandwiches. Try the pizza?it?s way better than the pizza at most buffets.



Catering Service

Food is fantastic and the prices are really reasonable. I had them cater for us at our house and everyone raved about how good the food was. Their meatballs, by far, are the best I've ever had. I was a little disappointed when they showed up 25 mins late to deliver the food, but I would still order from them again.

Rehearsal Dinner

We booked are rehearsal dinner there - put down the deposit, picked out our menu, everything..
THREE DAYS before our dinner Mary called us and said that one thing on the menu that we picked, was not even available - AND that we could not have anyone under 21 in our party because our tables were near the bar area...
(O.K I bring my child to Applebees and there is a BAR right in the middle of the place)
I was so very upset and MARY could not seem to care less. We had to find another place - Which was not easy 3 days before.
We were given false information and they did not offer to do ANYTHING to make it up to us.
***We had a party of 25 people, but I guess they don't need the business***

Stancato's is the BEST for Travelers!!

I travel quite often from So. New Hampshire with my boyfriend to Parma, OH. Every night that we are there, we always eat at Stancato's. As a chef myself, I can say without a doubt that this is one of the best places I have been to within my travels! Perry makes a long day very refreshing and exciting in the end!! Thanks Perry!
