Part of a national chain that attempts to recreate the experience of a boisterous Italian wedding circa 1950, Buca di Beppo is crowded, noisy, and fun. The wall-posted menu includes gargantuan appetizers, salads, pizza, pasta, veal, and chicken dishes made for sharing. The food is good, even if it is overshadowed by sheer portion size.
Chef Dante Boccuzzi’s third Cleveland restaurant, D.C. makes high-quality, house-made pastas fun and affordable. Sold by portion size — taste, appetizer, or main — the various combinations can be mixed and matched to create a wide-ranging feast. The rest of the menu is equally accessible, with sections for cured meats, Italian cheeses, marinated veggies, meatballs, entrées — even olives. Top it all off with 25 bottles of Italian wine priced south of $25 and you have the makings of an affordable Italian banquet.
Burgers, bourbon, and apple pies are the triple calling cards of this handsome restaurant in downtown Lakewood. The father-and-son owners are members of the fabled Cerino clan of Cleveland restaurateurs, and their savvy shines through in everything from the cohesively decorated space -- a cheerful blend of contemporary and vintage touches -- to the attentive, friendly service. Don’t-miss dishes include the signature E ‘n’ E Burger, the twice-fried frites, and the country fried chicken. Garnished with an imported cherry, the Manhattans kick ass too.
From the elegant crowd to the complementary gourmet pizza served on the hour during happy hour, Players is top-shelf, all the way.

Cindy Good has always loved the small-town charm of Berea. Doing her part to snazz it up, Good opened a combination wine bar and retail shop. The knowledgeable shopkeeper tracks down the best labels from small producers' wines you won't find at grocery stores. Even better, two enomatic machines dispense tastes of 16 varieties, so customers can try before they buy. Wines are sold at state minimum prices. For those who wish to enjoy their booty on premises alongside, say, an artisan cheese board, a $7 cork fee is added.
The large menu features Cantonese, Szechuan and Hunan cuisines, as well as Japanese, Korean and Indian specialties.
