Our Owner and Chef:

DeSalvo Catering and Restaurant starts with our owner, Richard DeSalvo and his upbringing right here in Rome NY. It's all about the homemade Italian Cuisine he grew up eating at his grandparents and parents' house and the food he prepared for his own family. Rich not only perfected those recipes, he has elevated them to bring a unique culinary experience to his patrons.

Our Food

We offer elevated Italian-American comfort classics and favorites to please every palate. From "The Taverna" a hand breaded bone in pork chop over a bed of roasted potatoes covered in fried peppers to the "Willard" a white garlic pizza with long-hots. Of course, we have  the instant classic Chicken DeSalvo, a cutlet served over roasted potatoes topped with roasted red peppers covered in DeSalvo sauce (A white wine cream sauce) - this food is steeped in Rome's culinary tradition.

Our pizza and wing specials are out of this world and the seafood menu? Forget about it.  We have you covered from lobster to shrimp and fish fry any day of the week.

Of course, every good meal deserves the right beverage and our menu features the largest selection of craft beers in the area, as well as a fully stocked bar.

Our Place
