Italian Favorite In Wilmington Named #1 Restaurant In Delaware
Living here in Delaware we know Wilmington has become more of it’s own destination for food than ever before. There’s no longer a need to head into Philly to find a great meal. In fact, I’ve heard of more and more folks traveling to a restaurant in Delaware, from Philly, for the food options we have here.
In recent months, the crew over at Shermans Travel went on the hunt for the best restaurants in each of the 50 states. While looking through this list there are no mentions of chain restaurants., which makes this list even better. We love mom and pop, local spots, and supporting smaller businesses.
#1 Restaurant In Delaware
So, where did they say was best in The First State? Mrs. Robino’s Restaurant in Wilmington.
Founded in 1940, Mrs. Robino’s, which is located in a row house in Wilmington, is Delaware’s first-ever Italian restaurant. What started out as Mrs. Tersilla Robino cooking homemade Italian food in her kitchen to Italian immigrants paved the way for this old-school joint, which serves classic fare and time-tested recipes, such as Mrs. Robino’s original sauce.
We actually highlighted Mrs. Robino’s in another post earlier this month. Read more about Mrs. Robino’s as one of the Wilmington must try spots featured on ‘Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives.’
