Good Food and Great Service

I really enjoyed my pasta, but the standout of my meal was the antipasto salad (I opted to "upgrade" from the garden side salad which came with my entrée). Our server was lovely and she was just attentive enough without hovering. Overall, my experience at Parasson's was just great. Check them out... read more

My family and I frequently went to this restaurant throughout my childhood and teen years. An entire family of five or six can be fed on a tight budget with good food for what you pay for. I was personally fond of the cheese pizza, the sauce was just about right and the cheese was nice textured and not rubbery.

I really enjoyed my meal at Parasson's Italian Restaurant. My server was Kaylee and she helped me pick exactly what I should order to get all the things I liked in one meal. The food was served quickly, hot and delicious. The environment was clean and spacious and the atmosphere was pleasant. I arrived after 6 pm on a Sunday... More

I came in hoping for authentic, fresh Italian. I soon discovered that it is very Americanized Italian food, made cheaply and often from frozen food. Despite my initial disappointment, their food is actually decent for what it is and the price is cheap. It's certainly not one of my favorites, but I would go back.

Went back with my son's family. I had not been there for over 29 years. The food is better than I remembered. And I remembered great food from back then. The food came quickly and the service was wonderful. Unfortunately, the bathrooms are. In the basement. The steps are awkward.

I lived in Akron and Stow most of my life before moving to the East Coast for work. When I return home for holidays and vacation, my first (and most important) stop is the Parasson's in Stow. It's the place where I had hundreds of family dinners over decades. It's the place with the best garlic bread, the best sauce,... More

I love their sausage, mushroom spaghetti. Their salads are fresh and good. I've never had a bad meal at this restaurant. Everyone is kind, friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Their take out is always hot and on-time.

Back than we did preferred their sandwiches especial the Tony Special and Rebecca special (which they do not have anymore). But, their pizza was hit or miss sometimes it was ok and other times it was horrible.... More

I went to Kent State in the late 70s and this restaurant was one of the favorite places to go when you were really hungry and didn't have a lot of cash. My memory was that the food was great, but we know how food memories don't always hold up well. SO after 30 years, I was pleased to discover... More

No reservations required. Food is excellent.The antipasto entree with their home made creamy Italian dressing definitely fills you up. Add the hot garlic bread and you're in heaven! Will definitely go back again, and again, and again...
