Don Marco’s Philosophy on Good Italian Food
Fresh – Homemade – Handmade – Made to Order
Traditional Rustic and Contemporary Italian prepared fresh daily, using quality ingredients, local when possible, and made with love just like his Nona’s and their mothers made for generations in Canada and Italy.
At Don Marco’s we believe making food with our own hands….the way our pomodoro sauce is made just like Nona would make. We start by using whole plum tomato, not pre-pureed, concentrated or crushed. And then we “passata” (puree & strain – no seeds no skins) the plum tomatoes ourselves. You might ask why? Superior quality and freshness of the tomatoes makes a better sauce. Add to that pure extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil, garlic, and Nona’s seasoning and then simmered for hours to perfection.
Ahh it smells like Sunday morning….
Don Marco’s is a cozy casual Italian Eatery located in the residential Cordage neighborhood in east Welland.
Off the beaten path of the typical “restaurant row” locations you find Welland’s Best Italian.
