Welcome to The Italian Place

Growing up Italian was not a big deal in New England.  Whether you were Italian or not, you still lived near Italians, had Italian friends and ate Italian food, and you became an extended part of the Italian community.  When the family moved to D.C. in 2000, they sought out every Italian market, deli, Italian restaurant, and although they came to know of a few, they found there just weren’t enough, like the ones they were so accustomed to back home in New England.

Italian grandparents were a very important part of this stores history. Nonnie & Papa who were business owners in the electrical trade were children of Italian immigrants who arrived at Ellis Island in the early 1900’s from the small Province of Avellino, outside of Naples in the Campania region of southern Italy. They were given the opportunity to live the American dream and they worked incredibly hard with their business and became active members of their community.

What this family remembers the most was their grandparents value and importance of family.  Every Sunday they would join them for a pasta feast at their dining room table and Papa enforced his rules about elbows off the table and all plates were cleared and no food was wasted, or you were not excused from the table.  Papa had authority, Nonnie followed his lead, and this family respected that.  We do our best to implore these same values and traditions with our family today and at The Italian Place!  

The Italian Place has become an enjoyable destination for so many locals as well as travelers to the DC area!  Stay tuned for The Italian Place near you as we expand across this great country!

CiaoDC Chats With The Visionary Behind The Italian Place

“Growing up... my Grandma (Nonnie) would spoil me and cook for me everyday and teach me how to make pizza and Italian subs... a lot of these recipes (at The Italian Place) come from my grandma"... The two most popular subs are the "Eva" Italian Sub and the "Nonnie" Meatball Sub named after my grandma... If you grew up Italian or in the North East, you'll find yourself at home at The Italian Place." Adriana Sifakis - the owner of The Italian Place - on her heritage and inspiration for the recipes that make The Italian Place what it is.
