As a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America I was taught by talented and experienced chefs from all over the world, yet I found the lessons I learned from my grandmother about this business and her unique approach to treating employees and customers could not be taught in a classroom. From the kitchen in her home to the kitchen in her restaurant, what I learned from my grandmother set my path in life and it continues to influence how I run my restaurants today.
I am very proud of Eddie’s Pizzeria Cerino. Our customers can expect a unique blend of Cerino family recipes that Carrie cooked in her home and new recipes that reflect my personal culinary experience. Over the years I learned to always start with quality ingredients, to never take shortcuts in the kitchen and to always strive to create a memorable meal. But what makes us unique is my goal to teach my staff the same lessons that I learned “growing up a Cerino” and making that part of our culture. We know that success is not simply serving delicious food, it’s nurturing relationships and providing a consistently extraordinary dining experience.
Celebrate our Italian! GATHER, SHARE & ENJOY
Larry Louis, General Manager
Our vision for the Pizzeria is to provide quality Italian food and pizza at reasonable prices along with creative special menu choices served in an inviting setting with genuine hospitality. We use high quality ingredients and hire professionals in our kitchen to make sure that our customers have plenty of reasons to visit regularly. Our catering menu provides several options for special events geared to both family and business occasions.
After 6 months we decided to expand our location and added Jr.’s Bar. The additional seating and 14 seat quartz bar was completed in November 2009 and has allowed us to provide an expanded craft beer, wine and inspired cocktail selections.
Our feature wall allows us to exhibit and sell local art from members of the Cleveland Photographic Society. The colorful and artistic prints have been a customer favorite since our opening and enhances the look and feel of our main dining room.
My grandmother, Carrie Cerino, taught me the importance of relationships with both staff and customers. Her example inspired in me the love of providing a great experience for gathering around a table with family & friends to enjoy delicious food and drink.
We look forward to you stopping in to gather, share and enjoy our Italian hospitality.
