Serventi's Restaurant ~

A favorite Butler restaurant since 1955. 
Thank you, Joe.
Sad closing: April 2014

Yeah Steve, I hear ya, even though I've been gone from Butler 20 years or more. The final straw--what about Savannah's Pizza, which, as I recall, was just around the corner up on Wayne Street from Serventi's?

Did you mean "Aquaviva's pizza" that was on West Wayne street just up from Serventi's? That was the best pizza I ever had. My family would get that every weekend when I was a kid. We would call and just say our name and they would say "the usual". My family still talks about that pizza today.

That's right, Dan..my bad..Aquaviva's...I've not had a good slice since, and brother, it's been 30 years!!

And just now I remembered...I think..Savannah's Pizza was on North Street, across from the junior high, three or four doors down from the Knights of Columbus.

That was Mana's Pizza, across from the junior high on North Street. Loved going there when I stayed with my Grandmother. Ahhh the memories.

Those are both good pizza places, but the best pizza we ever had was at the Viaduct Pizza. That place closed a long time ago and was torn down when the new Wayne Street Viaduct was built. Butler used to be a great place to live. Now, it's a shell of the former glory days. Sad.

I remember Serventi's when it was The Castle, and then Mexican Village. Joe Baranick owned it.He's my father. I hung out there through grade school and high school. I loved the cooks and waitresses but especially the Italian food.

Tried every year at this restaurant only to have unprepared staff and food not available - a true recipe for closing.
