When you say “Italian cuisine,” most people think of pasta and pizza. Nothing is more iconic than an Italian pizza. Dean Martin said it all with his “That’s Amore” hit.

Is it Authentic Italian Pizza?

Bernardi’s is as authentic as they come. In 1933, Nildo Arthur Bernardi founded Mona’s Italian Restaurant, bringing the flavors of Northern Italy to Toluca, IL. Little did Bernardi know, he would start a legacy of exquisite Italian cuisine that would pass from generation to generation. Today, more than 85 years later, all of Bernardi’s restaurants are run by his descendants. Come try the taste of tradition for yourself!
