Known to millions as a semi-finalist on season 8 of The Voice, Sarah has since gone on to release a critically-acclaimed debut solo LP ‘Monster’ in 2016, which prompted Rolling Stone to gush, “Potenza is to the blues what Adele is to pop: a colossal-voiced singer who merges her old-school influences with a modernistic sound.” ‘Road to Rome’ is an a...

A question about his death caught Steve DiFillippo by surprise. DiFillippo, the sociable and talkative owner and CEO of Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse, said he gets asked a lot of questions, but never on that topic.

The sugary white cookies, pronounced “ri-gut-tuh," are an Italian-American tradition and can usually be found in decorative tins adorned with tinsel and bows around the holidays.

Whenever I walk into a restaurant nowadays I can’t help looking back at the time I worked for an Italian Food Wholesaler. I spent six years of my life driving a food service truck and delivering all the food to Italian and Greek restaurants exclusively. It seemed like a normal job from the outside.

What’s your favorite cuisine? For me, it’s Filipino food and Mexican food, but that likely has something to do with the fact I a) am Filipino and b) grew up in Yuma, Arizona — affectionately called the “armpit of Arizona.” But in that scorcher of an agricultural town, located a smidge north of the Mexico border and a smidge east of the southern Cal...

House Bill 1185, which eliminates Columbus Day and replaces this with Colorado Day, should be viewed as a slap in the face and offensive to anyone of Italian descent. I am not of Italian descent and I am offended. Those of Italian descent should be proud of their heritage and to the contributions made to this country. This bill divides people of th...
