Casa Mia on the Green
By KATELYN KELLEHER
ROCKY HILL - Casa Mia restaurant, one of the faces of Hartford’s South End’s Italian-American community on Franklin Avenue, now has a new location overlooking Rocky Hill’s Rolling Greens Golf Club, Casa Mia on the Green.
It’s all about family for owner and chef Tony Guglielmi, who has more than 40 years of experience in the restaurant industry. He considers his staff a family--many have been with Casa Mia since the original location opened and the “newest” has been there for seven years--and some actually are his family. Guglielmi’s son Daniel, a Johnson & Wales University graduate, will take over the Rocky Hill location as executive chef.
Casa Mia on the Green is a more convenient location for its many customers in the Rocky Hill, Wethersfield and Cromwell area, who were excited to visit the new renovated location that opened in December, Guglielmi said. A fresh look sets the scene for fine Italian dining, with walls of windows overlooking Rolling Greens.
The a la carte menu features the classic Italian dishes Casa Mia is known for with some Mediterranean additions. Special holiday menus, including a family-style Mother’s Day four-course dinner, are offered, as well.
Happy hour specials at Casa Mia’s bar include discounted drinks and $2 draft beers, which Guglielmi expects will be popular, especially once warm weather brings golfers to Rolling Greens.
Casa Mia offers two banquet rooms, one for parties up to 36 people and a larger room for parties up to 85. Family style, buffets and individual menus are offered for corporate events, funerals, showers and wedding rehearsals and other events.
Casa Mia on the Green, 600 Cold Spring Rd., Rocky Hill, is open for lunch and dinner and can be reached at 860-563-7000. For more information and to view Casa Mia’s full menus, visit www.casamiact.com.
