About Us

We love Italian Food as much as you do. That’s why we’ve been cooking delicious food since 1960. Welcome to the "Dukes". Buon Appetito!

Our History

Founded in 1960, we have built a wonderful reputation for having the "Best Italian Food" in New Castle.

You see, back in the early 1960’s, New Castle had this card club consisting of five Italian women who also liked to do good works. They attempted to form a women’s auxiliary to a men’s Italian Club called the Dukes. Those of us of Italian descent know that Italian men don’t like to have their space, and especially their clubs, encroached upon. The ladies’ efforts were not well received. Not to be deterred, the ladies formed their own non-profit organization and called themselves The Ladies of the Dukes. They started selling what they did best - their cooking. They bought a small restaurant, and the rest is history.

Now, we welcome you to visit us on Sundays and we are open from 11 am to 6 pm. Reservations are welcome but not required. Just be prepared for italian food just like nonna used to make!
