I thought how nice it would be if someone would open an Old Fashioned Italian Restaurant, then I thought - Why not Me?
I talked it over with my family (Shari, Allyse, Alex and Alexa) and they all agreed to help. So we got busy turning our idea into reality. Also, I have been blessed with some of the best friends that anyone could have and they all came through in a very big way in helping us get started.
I was the last of six children and the only one that wanted to assist my mother with her cooking. So, if you enjoy True Italian cooking (which I learned from my Mother), then Mia Madre Trattoria is worth the visit.
Over the years my mothers house was the favorite of all my friends in the melting pot neighborhood of Brookline.
The Women in My Life:
Mia Madre translates to "My Mother" in honor of Shari's mother Susie Mesko, my mother Mary Molinaro and the Blessed Mother who we owe a lot.
Mary Molinaro Nicholas: Her Friends called her "Shorty" and her grandchildren called her "Nunny." I just called her "My Heart!"
Elizabeth Mesko: Her friends called her "Suzy" and her grandchildren called her "Bubba." I called her the best Mother in Law a guy could ask for and Shari Called her "Mommy."
The wait staff are eager to serve and will make you feel like family.
Most of them are my family.
On behalf of our family, we invite your family to stop by and enjoy.
My wife who is Polish and has that very special way of welcoming you into our Trattoria.
Vieni a mangiare - Come and Eat!
