From Humble Beginnings


From humble beginnings
Our Original Location on Pershing street founded in 1948

Starting in 1948, second generation Italian-American and WWII veteran, Sam Maranto, started a real mom and pop Italian Restaurant shop on Pershing street that featured true old world, traditional, Authentic, Italian food. He was joined by his wife Rita a few years later.The original Italian Kitchen on Pershing Street, near the five points area, has been a long time El Paso, landmark and has the tradition of serving the finest, most authentic home made Italian food that the city El Paso has to offer. Sam and Rena ran the restaurant for many years with the help of their three daughters, Roseann, Gina, and Janiece making it a truly family owned and operated business.

The Italian Kitchen story continued:

Two of the three Maranto sisters, Janiece and Gina chose other professions outside of the family restaurant business, but Roseann Maranto decided to stay in the business with her parents and then with the help of her husband, Santiago Alonso Jr., a local succesful businessman in his own right, they decided to open the Italian Kitchen West in 2006 on the west side of El Paso, Texas. So with the help of their three sons, Santiago III., Andres, and Marco, Santiago and Roseann Alonso continue to own and operate the Italian Kitchen West to the satisfaction of many long-time regular customers in the El Paso area.
