Being going to this restaurant since it first opened in the Akron area

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...

Grabbed some baked pasta for two of family . The take-out portions seem even smaller than the last time we got it last winter. When you get take-out the portions are still big enough for two meals for most unless you are starved. I suggest getting an extra order of bread for eating the second day. The baked penne with...

Since I first moved to Ohio in the 70's we've been visiting Parasson's. It's changed a little over the years, the pizzas are no longer $1.15, but it's still a fun place to eat and visit. My favorite is the antipasto salad.

The prices are great as well as the food! We go to the restaurant frequently. We also order meals to go when we are eating at home. Great lasagna and salads as well as the garlic bread. The atmosphere is okay, but the service is good.

Best creamy Italian dressing and garlic bread. Not crazy about the atmosphere, but good food overall. The prices are really low and you can't go wrong in pleasing the family here.

The best part of this restaurant is the bread! The garlic bread is the most wonderful thing that you have ever tasted. They have many food options that are all very good. The kids meals also come with a dessert which is rare. The service was also very good and they were friendly. This place has a down home family... More

We went after movies and it was homecoming night for local schools. The place was somewhat packed but service was still fairly quick. The food portions aren't as huge as they were in the past but still filling . We had baked spaghetti and baked penne with meat sauce and both took a little home. The chocolate dessert they serve...

I see many posts that rave about this place. You won't here that from me. Bland sauce. Overcooked pasta. Tasteless cheese ravioli. Antipasto "premium" side that consisted of a couple of Roma tomato slices, two small black olives, a few banana pepper rings and a couple of half slices of lunch meat. Ordered extra meatballs (six total -very small) on... More
