5 stars for food, but beware of upgrading any items. If you upgrade salad or pasta sauce, they give no credit for their standard offering, charge full price as a side. Just wanted a different pasta sauce, server did say upgrade, wound up with a larger portion of pasta than standard with different sauce, $20!

Amazing all around! Everything was tasty, but the roasted burrata appetizer definitely wins as my favorite! Currently for the spring menu there is a cocktail called Pixie Dust, and it's a definite must order; it's not only tasty, but it's a science experiment! Such a great restaurant for a date night, will definitely return.

About the restaurant
It takes more than exquisite cooking to make a memorable meal. We at Cucina Vitale believe an intimate atmosphere in the right location, personal and attentive service, and great company is what separates a delicious meal from an unforgettable experience.

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE A BYOB and CASH ONLY ESTABLISHMENT.

Food was excellent and staff were friendly. Their Gnocchi was excellent with their homemade Vodka sauce. We can’t wait to go back and try more of their dishes.

About the restaurant
In an attempt to honor the history of our beautiful building, the third Melon Bank ever built, we pay homage to its past! We chose period correct lighting and finishes from 1940 to bring it all together!

Della Terra which translates to “of the earth” transforms the essence of a small town eatery. Centrally located in historic downtown Zelienople, our goal is to capture the warmth and comfort of an Italian trattoria.  Chefs reinterprets the bounty of the surrounding area, exploring an ingredient-driven cuisine that pulls inspiration from the Italian cooking tradition to create meaningful food, celebrating the restaurant’s ongoing relationship with its local family of farmers and suppliers.

Della Terra is open continuously throughout the day, serving an ever changing roster of lunch paninis, pasta, pizza, entrees, snacks and daily dishes. With a beautiful bar, we welcome a late night atmosphere, offer a daily happy hour, and also serve the finest locally roasted c
