The founders of Leo’s Italian Social call it a gathering place to meet for cocktails and conversation. The goal of the restaurant is to connect with each other by sharing delicious food, well-made cocktails, and great wine.

There are many options on the menu such as Shortrib ravioli, calamari, crab cakes and much more. And don't overlook the chocolate cake with amazing espresso icing or the cannoli made with fresh chocolate chips. For more info about Leo's Italian Social, visit their website here.

Had another great meal at Leo’s with all my family Thursday as we celebrated my sons 46th Birthday. The back room is our favorite. The food is outstanding, we have never had a bad meal there. The cook is truly a Great Italian Chief !!!!! Everything about the restaurant is heavenly. Excursion557022 (source)

Retz's Laconi's II was started in May of 2003 when the Retzer family took over, and with the guidance of Sam Laconi brought back his original Laconi's Pizza to Cuyahoga Falls. Laconi's wants customers to enjoy a friendly atmosphere and a delicious meal.

Guests will find a menu that features classics such as Antipasto salad, pasta favorites such as lasagna, eggplant parmesan, baked cheese ravioli and even wings. Ninni's cannoli is a fantastic dessert. That is worth trying. You can visit Laconi's website here.

Went for Wednesday night Wing night. Multiple flavors ordered at table - all were very good. Fun, friendly, atmosphere. No wing chips for a southern grill but tried JoJo fries and sauerkraut ball (awesome). Have to try homemade cucumber vodka drink they serve. Great neighborhood place. Michele E (source)
