In 1956, Frank T. Vescio and his wife, Charlotte, founded Vescio"s Originale in Dinkytown on the U of M campus. Frank, a second generation Italian from the southern Calabria region in Italy, spent many years with his mother, Teresa, (Liz) Vescio, cooking and creating in the kitchen. The Vescio's… love of family, authentic Italian cooking and tradition is still with us today as third, fourth and fifth generations of Vescios are carrying on the dreams and values of Frank T. Vescio.
We hope you enjoy with gusto our family recipes for Italian sausage, meatballs, braciole, sauces, dressings and pastas. We hand prepare our dishes which contain the freshest ingredients.

Treasure your family, honor your heritage and savor your meal.Continued
