With our freshly prepared, delicious Italian menu and exceptional service, we will create the perfect culinary experience. Our menu options include the famous chicken caccitore and chicken ravioli brought over from Italy by Leda Commellini in 1918. We are excited to share the rich and colorful history of Commellini’s and to provide a unique and contemporary menu you will rave about. Please note that we do provide offsite catering as well.   

Styles of Service

Family Style dinning is Commellini’s signature method of serving food in which serving dishes are placed on the dining table,  allowing guests to select what they wish and to serve themselves. This dining style is  the most intimate and conducive to conversation.

For buffet the food is artistically arranged on a display table (possibly more than one) and guests select what they wish from a range of hot and cold foods, soups, roasts, salads, and desserts. 
Type of service where the food is artfully set out on individual plates by the chef then served to seated customers.
