This is for my Northeast Ohio readers and others who might venture into the Akron area sometime in the future.
Tony Parasson started selling pizza in his mother's tavern in Barberton, Ohio in 1960. The following year he relocated to 234 Wooster Rd North, Barberton, Ohio. This was where Mrs74 and I recently went for a late lunch.
Being after the lunch rush, we were able to get seated immediately. During busy periods we never have to wait too long to be seated. We were then greeted by our server, a young lady named Maddy. She promptly got us our drinks, then took our order. Soon afterward our garlic bread and my salad were brought to the table. Although it was a side salad, I was served plenty. Maddy made sure our drinks were kept full and we didn't run out of garlic bread.
We had ordered baked subs, but my wife did not want hers on bread, so the smothered chicken was served as an entree. I ordered the sausage sub. Although we ordered "half" subs, we had plenty of food. The manager on duty was making the rounds, asking all patrons how the service was and refilling drinks as necessary.
The service was extraordinary, but then I don't recall when I've been disappointed at Parassons. the check was a very reasonable 22 dollars, and both Mrs74 and I agreed that Maddy deserved more than the customary tip.
Parassons has a full menu of pizza, pasta, subs and other favorite Italian dishes.
As mentioned before, this Parassons is located on Wooster rd North, in Barberton, across the street from Kmart. Phone number is 330-753-2264
