If you’re looking for Italian food with more than a touch of class, Flour is your spot. Owner/executive chef Paul Minnillo ran Little Italy’s beloved Baricelli Inn for 25 years before he moved out here and joined forces with co-chef Matt Mytro.
Located in wealthy Moreland Hills, this restaurant is bright, spacious, and welcoming. Equally inviting is its focus on rustic Italian comfort food, served for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, along with an extensive list of bottled wines (as well as wines by the glass and a selection of beers). Wood-fired pizzas are a specialty, along with the usual Italian classics. This is another of those places that’s not nearly as expensive as the décor, location, and Minnillo’s pedigree might make you think. Your family or your crowd could definitely make a habit of going here.
