History of Garlini's
Leonello and Margaret Garlini immigrated to the U.S. in 1967 from Naples, Italy. They moved to Wenatchee in 1982. Margaret was the head chef and Neilo did everything else.
All the recipes were Mother's. She trained her son Richard and he and his wife Diane took over the restaurant in 1983. They grew the restaurant with their daughters Jenny and Rachel until 1996. Craig and Michelle Still were given "an offer they couldn't refuse" and the rest is history!
In the spring of 2010, the Stills moved Garlini's from it's original location in East Wenatchee, to Wenatchee, just across the Columbia River. In addition to traditional pastas and other menu items that were offered at the old restaurant, the new location features a wood-fired, stone pizza oven which is the centerpiece of the new restaurant.
At an operating temperature of 800 to 900 degrees Fahrenheit, the oven creates the unique Napoletana style pizza, bringing the restaurant back to the Garlini family's roots... Naples, Italy where it all began.
The addition of the oven, fresh new ingredients, and new menu items created a new and unique dining experience, thus "Garlini's" became "Garlini's Napoletana".
