A Story You'll Just Want To Eat Right Up

Nearly 50 years ago, a family had a vision to open their own restaurant. In 1955, Canzani, Sabatino and Luperini opened their first Italian restaurant. This fine eatery which they named Sabatino’s only sat about thirty-five to forty people. However, in 1971, the family expanded the restaurant by adding an additional room. For the third time in 1981, the family expanded and also renovated.

Sabatino’s, which is still owned by the same family, now seats four hundred and fifty people. Currently, Renato Rotonda, who originally worked for his family as a bus boy, now is the head chief and co-owns the restaurant with Vince Culotta.

Throughout the years, Sabatino’s has offered home-style Central and Southern Italian Cuisine to their loyal patrons. Phillip Culotta, general manager and son of Vince Culotta, claims the restaurant specializes in homemade pastas and specialty dishes such as Shrimp Renato. Sabatino’s also has a full bar with a large variety of Italian wines and top-shelf cocktails. Sabatino’s is located in historic Little Italy and is open 7 days a week until 3 am.
