This family-run, home style, local landmark restaurant, has sadly closed it's doors. What a treasure that will be missed. All the best to the Totero family!

My family has been eating here for more than 20 years. You can't beat the family-owned restaurant with high quality, authentic food. The meatballs are delicious! A must stop before they close!

Best Lasagne I have ever had in my lifetime. You have to be a little careful in the neighborhood, but the excellent Italian food is more than worth it. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant isn't open very often but if you do get the chance to eat here, definitely do so! This location isn't in the best neighborhood but you should have no problems. Very small & intimate setting. Good for families as well. Call to see if you can have a private dinner for a special occasion.

I am a chef by trade, but more importantly, I am a lover of fantastically prepared food. I have been eating at Totero's for over 20 years and have NEVER been disappointed one time. Everyone raves over the Lasagna (and rightfully so), but what makes Angela's lasagna and all of her other fantastic meals taste so good is her "red... More

I was originally taken here by some friends, about 15 years ago, and have been back many many times. This is by far the best Italian food I've eaten. Their sauce is fantastic, and the ambience is part of what makes this place a truly unique dining experience. I have taken many friends here over the years, and everyone loves... More

My first experience and wow is all I can say. Waited 20 minutes outside for a slice of heaven which is also called lasagna. From the rich sauce to the perfectly cook pasta. No wonder why they have been around since 1939. The best Italian food I have ever eaten.

This wonderful little Italian Restaurant is now only open for lunch and Wednesday is Lasagna day! The lunch menu is very limited, but you will not be disappointed. You walk in and place your order at a window to the kitchen, you are handed your plate and then you find a place to eat your lunch. If you are looking... More

By far the best Italian food in Racine. They are only open for lunch and you have only a couple of choices but it's more than enough. Authentic & unique! Absolutely delicious!

Old world Italian at its best. Anytime you have an older Italian woman cooking in a black dress, you know it's going to be good. If your looking for fancy schmancy, this isn't for you. Get down off your high horse and enjoy some old fashioned Italian cooking done right.
