Dan and Joan opened Zanelliís in Dover, PA 7 months ago. Joan has a background in human resources, but she wanted to leave the corporate world and do something she was more passionate about. She runs the front of house and business side of the restaurant. Dan is an experienced chef, so he handles the recipes and back of house. Their skills mesh perfectly for running a successful restaurant. Their concept is rooted in tradition, food, and family. Zanelliís is a family name they chose in honor of their great grandfather. He came to the states from the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy and opened up an olive oil and wine store. Since then their family has always had a passion for finely and lovingly prepared food. Dan and Joan make everything from scratch, just like theyíre used to at home. Their mother baked every day and their father owned a butcher shop, so they always had fresh, homemade meals. Food has always been a big part of their family and culture and they wanted to be able to share that culture and amazing food with the world. Zanelliís specializes in traditional Italian, homemade cuisine. They make everything from sauces to breads to meat. A must try is their lasagna which has been called ìthe stuff dreams are made ofî by a customer. If youíre looking for an affordable option, they have $6 lunch specials, which include half a cold sub, fries, and a drink. The caprese and Italian subs are two crowd favorites. Joan recommends the Gorgonzola Salad made with olives, tomato, onion, gorgonzola grumbles, and creamy homemade dressing. Zanelliís offers catering and online ordering. Catering menus are available online. They are open Tuesday-Saturday for lunch and dinner. Check out Zanelliís for Italian cuisine made with love and care!
