Jasper's Italian Restaurant is one of our favorite Kansas City treats.  This place is "Good Fellas" authentic, complete with private dining rooms in the back and Cadillacs in the front.  Jasper's upbeat and friendly staff make you feel right at home.  We highly recommend the asparagus appetizer with prosciutto (served cold with a mustard sauce) and don't forget the lasagna - don't be afraid to order the "layman's Italian dish" here - Jasper's lasagna is original and succulent.  Maybe you only have time for lunch?  Grab a quick and filling Italian lunch from the adjoining Italian Deli "Marco Polo's".  Either way, you definitely need to get your cardio work out on the following day to burn off those extra 7000 calories.

More about Jasper's Italian Restaurant from www.jasperskc.com :

Facilities

The restaurant was designed by Matthew Connolly, A.I.A. of MDC Architecture. He incorporated many items from the old restaurant on 75th Street including carpet, mirrors, 80 year-old doors, and other dining room fixtures for the contemporary rustic Italian decor. A patio offers a view of the Indian Creek and seats 50. The dining room features a private dining room that seats 8-10 and includes all of the awards, family pictures, and articles from the former Jasper's. Jasper Sr. helped design the restaurant and menu before his recent death. Many of his signature items are on the new menu. The dress is casual, reservations for parties of 6 or more are accepted. For more information, contact Jasper Jr., at 816.941.6600.

The Tradition

In 1954, a small neighborhood Italian restaurant and bar was opened in Kansas City by Leonardo Mirabile and his son, Jasper. The restaurant, named Jasper's, quickly became a popular Kansas City dining spot. The Mirabile family's old-world recipes produced hearty and delicious dishes. From a .79 cent, three course meal, Jasper's gradually expanded its menu and remodeled the restaurant as it evolved into one of America's premiere locations for gourmet Italian food. Caesar Salad, Fettucine Alfredo, Scampi Livornese and a variety of authentic Northern Italian dishes marked Jasper's introduction of fine dining to Kansas City. (see timeline)

By 1978, Jasper's dedication to fine Italian cuisine and impeccable service resulted in Jasper's becoming the first Kansas City restaurant to win the coveted Mobil Four Stars for dining excellence.. .a rare honor awarded to only ninety-five restaurants in all of North America. The AAA Four Diamonds and DiRONA awards quickly followed along with every other nationally recognized award for dining excellence. These and other, often sought, but not easily won awards have been awarded to Jasper's every year since.

In 1984, joined by his sons Leonard, Salvatore, and Jasper, Jr., the Mirabiles opened Marco Polo's Groceria, an authentic Italian grocery store, delicatessen and pizzeria just around the corner from the award-winning Jasper's. Again in 1990, the Mirabiles introduced Marco Polo's Trattoria, next door to their deli, thus creating a true Italian neighborhood in the midst of Kansas City. This was Kansas City's first and only Trattoria featuring casual Italian dining. It was acclaimed as "the finest restaurant of it's kind in Kansas City."

As the year 1996 began, Jasper's received two of the restaurant industry's highest honors. That year Jasper, Sr., was inducted into the DiRONA Restaurant Hall of Fame, one of only 15 restaurateurs in all of North America to be distinguished with such rare honors. In April, Jasper Jr., was invited to cook at the James Beard House in New York, another rare honor. For the first Kansas City chef chosen to cook there, he received high acclaim and honors from NY food critics and Beard House members.

The year 1997 brought great changes to our Wornall location. Jasper and his sons decided to sell their property at 75th Street to Walgreen Drugs, thus ending 44 wonderful years at the same location.

After a year of researching restaurants in Italy and America, the Mirabiles then purchased the Watts Mill Shopping Center and moved their offices to their new 103rd Street and State Line location. A new Jasper's Restaurant and Marco Polo Italian Market was then built to begin serving Kansas Citians once again.

On October 8, 1998, the family and all of Kansas City was deeply saddened by the death of our founder and the city's eminent restaurateur and host, Jasper, Sr. Up until a week before his passing, Jasper worked diligently with his sons to bring Kansas City back its treasured restaurant.

Today, the Mirabile Family begins a new era and brings a new dimension to Italian dining in Kansas City.

We hope you enjoy the true Italian tradition of our fine food and personal impeccable service.

Then & Now

The history of Jasper's Restaurant at 1201 W. 103rd Street in Kansas City, Missouri is an Horatio Alger story, an American saga of success attained through hard work and steadfast devotion to excellence.

Today, enjoying a premier status among American dining establishments. Jasper's was a simple enough neighborhood place at the time of its founding forty-five years ago. But even then, an uncompromising standard of food quality and service set Jasper's apart from its contemporaries. The progress from simple steak and pasta meals to exotic meat, fowl, and seafood specialties with distinctive, subtle sauces has been a dramatic one. But it has also been a logical development, given the restless perfectionism of the restaurant's founder, Jasper J. Mirabile.

In the earlier years, Jasper pursued his quest for culinary excellence through restaurant trade journals. As his business grew, he started to travel to the places, both here and abroad, where the finest food is served. Today, he might fly to either coast or to Europe for a single meal at a restaurant where he has heard of an outstanding dish being served. Recognition has been gratifying on a nationwide basis. In addition to its position as "Kansas City's Most Prized Restaurant" in terms of prestigious awards, Jasper's has been praised by national media and celebrated personages.

In reporting the 1976 Republican Convention in Kansas City, TIME MAGAZINE spoke of Jasper's as one of the two best restaurants in the city. America 's foremost food critic, Craig Clairborn, has included a Jasper's recipe in his book on great veal dishes. A bevy of famous celebrities such as Bob Hope, Walter Cronkite, Hank Stram, Milton Berle Anthony Quinn and Mitzi Gaynor, and many others have all dined at Jasper's and have praised its service. The Jasper's tradition promises to be a continuing one.

The restaurant's operation, which is overseen by Jasper's two sons, Leonard and Jasper Jr. Leonard is an alumnus of the School of Restaurant Management at the University of Denver. Jasper Jr. has attended the counterpart of that school at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. A thorough going family enterprise in spite of its cosmopolitan dining atmosphere, Jasper 's makes all its own pastas and desserts. The latter are generally the work of Jasper's wife, Josephine. Every Sunday night, the family tests new recipes in the spacious kitchen at the Mirabile Home, where three generations of Mirabile's and an assortment of friends provide a rigorous standard of judgement. "If a dish can pass this test", says Jasper Jr., "it's good enough for our customers."

About the Chef

For Jasper J. Mirabile Jr., working in the kitchen of Kansas City's most award winning restaurant, Jasper's, has become a homecoming of sorts - a homecoming to his family-owned establishment.

Jasper was named executive chef of Kansas City's premiere dining room in May of 1984 at the young age of 22. Jasper had spent the past college years at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Hotel and Restaurant School. During the summer vacations each year he would travel to Europe to visit cooking schools in Paris, Venice, and Milano.

Mirabile's family history reflects a love for fine food and elegance. His grandmother helped his father launch Jasper's back in 1954, now almost 45 years later, Jasper has taken over reins of the 2000+ square foot kitchen, as he oversees the staff of 15 assistants. In his own style, Jasper creates dishes from his own Sicilian background, along with a very heavy influence from Tuscany and the Piemontese regions of Italy.

In 1986 Mirabile began offering cooking classes in the Dining room at Jasper's, with such themes as Cuccina 101, Primi-Primi-Primi, Pasta Cookery 101, Veal Cookery, Cucina Sicilia, as well as his special Christmas, Valentine's Day and Mother's Day luncheon classes. For the past 8 years, every class has been a complete sellout.

Since 1990, Jasper has become a naturally acclaimed chef in his own rite. He has made guest chef appearances at The James Beard House in L.A., New York, Milan, and Paris. He has been written about by every major newspaper and magazine including Laudes by USA Today, New York Times, Midwest Living, and Italy's Cucina.

When dining in Kansas City, Jasper's has become a must visit for many. Jasper J. Mirabile Jr. has come home to Jasper's - and he invites you to join him soon.

Lidia's (or Lydia's) Italian Restaurant
101 W. 22nd Street
Kansas City, MO 64108
Ph: 816.221.3722
Official Website:  www.kansas.lidiasitaly.com

Lidia's (or Lydia's as most people misspell it) Italian Restaurant in Kansas City is pretty hard to find if you're not from the area.  Therefore, we've provided you a MAP before we even start about this place.  MMMkay...

First of all, this place is GREAT - no seriously - all of the Italian treats are prepared FRESH DAILY.  Unlike some restaurants in the Kansas City area, Lidia's is best visited during the peak dining hours.  When the house is full, the show is on.  Chefs parade up and down the isles carrying fresh Italian masterpieces, delivering fresh creations directly to your plate.  We've noticed that during the "down times" the service is decidedly less attentive.  For instance we'll give you some quick advise for "down time" food management:  YOU HAVE TO ASK THE SERVER OR CHEF FOR SECONDS! - they will refill your plate a million times with whatever you order, but you have to flag someone down and ask.  During the peak hours, the chefs are filing up and down the isles constantly and it's not an issue.  I think maybe the chefs go in the back and watch Telemundo during the off peak hours.

One thing to note about Lidia's Italian Restaurant in Kansas City is that they have an excellent bar and wine list.  And, you can even light up a cigar if you want...

Waldo is a neighborhood in Kansas City frequented by many peaceful hippie-type people wearing Elvis Costello glasses and the like.  If you don't know what Elvis Costello glasses are, they are a horrible trend started in the early 80's by dorks that would have been computer geeks had computers been around then but instead had to settle for collecting "rare records" and being vegans and smoking pot and owning way too many pets and sporting the Colorado fanny-pack, sandals on men (which is definitely wrong) and clothing and jewelry made out of hemp and ....ok where were we....oh yeah!

Seriously though, all hippie jokes aside, this place rocks.  We eat there monthly.

There is beer.  Trivial Pursuit cards are on the table for you to stump and dominate your peers.

People watching is sometimes fun in here...

Rosati's Pizza

Rosati's is a miracle on flatbread.  I am originally from St. Louis and I KNOW what deep dish pizza is supposed to taste like.  The new Uno's Pizza is not the same as the old Uno's Pizza.  This disappoints me.  Rosati's, however, does not disappoint on ANY level.  Wow, now THAT'S a friggin' deep dish pizza!

The Rosati family’s history of serving delicious Italian food to American customers dates all the way back to the late 1800’s. In 1895, Fred Rosati, who recently emigrated from Italy, opened an Italian restaurant in New York. After the turn of the century he moved to Chicago and opened another Italian restaurant serving the finest Italian dishes. Pizza was a popular appetizer that Mr. Rosati would serve to customers and friends, although back then the pizza was prepared in the Italian tradition consisting of tomato sauce served on a crisp piece of bread. In 1927, following in his father’s footsteps, Fred's son Sam opened his own Italian restaurant in downtown Chicago. When Sam retired his sons were ready to continue the family tradition. The year was 1964 and pizza in America was starting to take off. Already armed with a rich family history of serving authentic Italian food, Sam’s sons Dick, Ronald and later Al joined to open the first Rosati’s Pizza in Mt. Prospect Illinois. They soon followed with a second location in Niles Illinois.

In 1970, Rick Rosati, great grandson of Fred Sr., continued the family tradition and opened his own Rosati’s Pizza store in Arlington Heights. By 1978, a total of ten different Rosati family members owned Rosati’s Pizza locations. In 1979 the family decided to grow even faster and began franchising the Rosati’s Pizza concept. In 1996 Sam Rosati, great great grandson of Fred Sr. opened his first Rosati’s Pizza location in Belvidere Illinois marking the fifth generation of Rosati family members serving delicious Italian food. This website is sponsored by one of the Rosati groups, led by Rick Rosati. Only those Rosati restaurants which are affiliated with this group are listed on this website.
