The first thing that hits you when you walk into the new Davitino’s is how different it is from the old Davitino’s. The second thing that hits you is how similar it is.
After 23 years in business in Mentor’s Colonial Plaza strip mall, the family-owned Italian restaurant relocated down Mentor Avenue to the Town Square Shopping Center. In the spot occupied over the years by various bars, Davitino’s has a more modern and more open operation than it had before.
The comfortable bar area at the entrance offers a welcoming waiting area, and the taupe-ish walls and high, black ceilings are quite a contrast from the cramped, somewhat dated dining room of the former place.

The familiar faces of those working, the same hustle-and-bustle ambiance of a family-owned place, and the Italy-themed prints on the wall, however, make it feel unmistakably Davitino’s.
