The Five Brothers

Around 1944, Anna started making spaghetti sauce for her neighbors. People in Elm Grove liked the sauce so much that they started buying it. She worked out of a little garage next to her home. The sauce got so popular that each of Anna’s five sons started helping her with the production and delivery to local grocery stores which soon lead to the opening of the first Figaretti’s restaurant.


Today

Currently owned by the third generation of the family, Dino Figaretti, who still resides in Wheeling, West Virginia with his wife Michelle and son Enzio. The restaurant has been at its current location for the last 17 years. Make Figaretti’s your family and come join us for a hearty Italian meal.
