From small and humble beginnings to a full-service foodservice company, the Scaffidi family is proud to be a small business in Steubenville, Ohio. Meet the family that brings you the Scaffidi Restaurant Group.
In October 2009, Dawn and Nino Scaffidi, both natives of Steubenville, Ohio opened their restaurant with the hopes of bringing the feeling of "Grandma's House on Sunday" to the people of Steubenville. Opening in a small home-like setting that sat approximately 25 people, the Scaffidi Family was proud to offer their family's recipes and traditions.
Shortly after opening, it became apparent that restaurant, then Scaffidi's Pasta, had outgrown its small location and the search for a new location quickly began. A location very close to the original space was found and made into the restaurant that it is today. In August 2011, Scaffidi's Pasta became Scaffidi's Restaurant and Tavern to signify the opening of its new bar and lounge area at its location where the restaurant is currently housed.
Growing literally 10X overnight, the Scaffidi Family was proud to be able to offer the same homemade cuisine that it did from day one - from homemade pastas to sauces to soups and much more.
With its new location, the Scaffidi family was able to offer private event space to host events of all types. With the growing success of its events on an on-site basis, it was decided that Scaffidi's would take its business on the road and offer off-site catering at various locations throughout the Ohio Valley.
Rebranded as the "Scaffidi Restaurant Group," the Scaffidi Family is here and ready to provide you with a full-service restaurant, bar, and catering service.
