“Good Old fashioned Italian restaurant”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

This is a shout out to a great family owned restaurant that has survived many generations in uptown Youngstown and now in Boardman. I've known K-man since high school when cooked out in my backyard. He's carrying on a great family tradition that his grandparents started many, many years ago. If you want a great Italian meal ... this is the place to go ... period!

“Scarsella's Lasagna Dinner”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Scarsella’s Italian Restaurant is one of Patty’s and mine favorite eating haunts. The restaurant is a quaint little place decorated with pictures of famous patrons that have dined there. The service is almost always great, the food is always excellent, and prices are just right.

As usual, Patty and I stopped on the way home from work at Scarsella’s. We were seated right away and the waitress took our drink order and our dinner order. (We knew what we wanted) In no time our diet pops were at our table along with fresh Italian bread and our salads.

The salad was standard fare, fresh, and with the added grated cheese on the table, was very good.

Tonight I ordered the Lasagna and it was a good choice indeed. The portion was generous, the sauce zesty, the meat spicy enough, the noodles cooked well, and the taste was very good. All for around 13 dollars not including tip.

“Homemade noodles, great sauce, Godfather-isk environment”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

While spending time at the Akron Children's Hospital in Boardman, one of our nurses gave us a high recommendation for Scarsella's; we were not disappointed! Scarsella's has a modest environment that reminds one of the famous scene in the Godfather. Many of the noodles are made on site and the sauce is on of a kind. The prices are great as well. The only downside to the restaurant is that it doesn't have alcohol. For an Italian restaurant not to have wine is like a German restaurant not having beer. Otherwise, this place is a gem and a must for anyone in the area that enjoys authentic Italian.

“Homemade pasta and sause!!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

I can't believe no one has given this place a review. Great Italian food with homemade pasta, and the best sause I have ever tasted! Interior is small with old fashion chrome tables and chairs and renovated exterior, and always has wonderful service. A little pricey but they have to compete with the chains in boardman, but it's definatley worth it. These small family owned restaurants are far and few between nowadays and Is a must especially for out of towners! Ask for extra sause and bread for dipping!
