The inspiration for Big Italy began more than two decades ago in a quaint town in Capena, Italy, located on the outskirts of Rome, where
the Montesantis owned a small, family restaurant. They served a variety of pizza and pasta dishes based on local recipes, each made with high-quality, hand-picked fresh produce and featuring homemade sauces. Twenty years later, Michelangelo teamed up with his friends, Marco and Paulo to bring secret family recipes to the United States through the newly minted Big Italy restaurant. Big Italy prides itself on great authentic food, big portions and a lot of dishes to choose from.
Big Italy boasts more than 100 different pizzas and more than 50 pasta dishes, all authentic, fresh and inspired by the Montesanti family restaurant in Capena, Italy.
