Dontino’s Ristorante, an Akron tradition since 1930- Very Modern, Very Italian and Very Good.

Vincenzo “Dontino” and Ana Maltempi always knew one thing, they loved to cook! They looked forward to their daily meals with their son Carlo and his many childhood friends while living in Akron’s North Hill. They loved having their friends over for many evenings spent solving the world’s problems over a plate of spaghetti, a glass of Chianti and an espresso. Those were the days back in the 50’s and 60’s in Akron’s North Hill.

In 1975 fate played its role bringing Dontino’s to life. Ana was employed by O’Neil’s as a seamstress in downtown Akron and Vincenzo was employed at A. Schulman Co. on Tallmadge Ave., when through a family friend the opportunity to buy “LaVita Gardens” (a North Hill tradition since 1930 on its own) was discussed. With the courageous spirit that drove them to America 25 years earlier, with much thought and encouragement from friends and family alike, and with the help of their son Carlo, “Dontino’s Ristorante” came to life.
