Spoleto- My Italian Kitchen
Authentic Italian Cuisine served Fast Food Style
BY DEIDRE PADILLA, Times Staff
WINTER PARK – Spoleto - My Italian Kitchen is a fast casual Italian restaurant that was started in 1999 in Brazil. On June 3, 2017 Spoleto had their official grand opening at their Winter Park location. This is their fourth location here in the Central Florida area. The other Spoleto locations are at UCF, Florida Mall and Windermere. They also have a Spoleto located in Irvine California. They plan on spreading the culinary freedom all over the United States and throughout the world. They use the slogan “Culinary Freedom” because Spoleto’s wants their customers to experience Italian food in a creative way at a reasonable price.
Their mission is to use organic ingredients, non-GMO, with no preservatives. They have tons of culinary selections like gluten free, penne, ravioli, organic salads, sauces and salad dressings made in-house and seasonal produce from locally owned farms. At Spoleto’s there is something for everyone if you are vegetarian, gluten, vegan and those who just want a hearty classic Italian meal. The pastas, flatbreads and salads are $9 and you can select up to 6 ingredients to put on top of these dishes. Diners can walk up to the glass counter and choose their toppings. They offer a selection of beer and wine.
“It’s a flowing kitchen while you are walking alongside the counter the chef will cook the food right in front of you,” Velasquez said. “It’s an experience that is different and unique. I want to tell the world we are here.”
The menu calls it “Spoleto Way” because they want you to feel like you are at home when you dine out at Spoleto’s. You can customize your meal your way.
