A Family Tradition

A Family Tradition

There is an expression in Italian - "la piazza e fatta per tutti" - that translates as "this square is for everyone". Casa Mia is that piazza. The renowned Niagara restaurant, which has been owned and operated by the Mollica family for the past 25 years, serves as a gathering place for food lovers who pay homage to the creativity, flair and culinary expression that defines matriarch and chef Luciana Mollica.

Casa Mia, which has become a hallmark of Italian cuisine, is also about a pilgrimage. It's been a long journey for Lucianna who arrived here from long ago humble begingings in Europe in search of a better life. It's about the present day pilgrimage of farmers to the kitchen door, knowing that the quality herbs, meats, fruits and vegetables grown or raised on their own land are welcome and wanted here. Together with son Claudio, the two manage to make the foods of Casa Mia exciting and fun.
