Oklahoma’s Little Italy


You’ll find four tasty original stops in Krebs, an area settled by immigrants from Italy who came to work the coal mines. Delicious food naturally plays a big part of the cultural mix here, and four eateries— Lovera’s Family Grocery, Roseanna’s Italian Food, Pete’s Place and Isle of Capri—each possess their own distinctive atmosphere while simultaneously serving up some of the best and most authentic pasta and sau- sage dishes in the region.


All four have been family owned and operated for generations, and each eatery offers signature menu items or products. At Pete’s, it’s the Choc beer; at Isle of Capri, it’s the Kentucky bourbon pecan pie. Rosean- na’s boasts a wonderful steak and pepper dinner, and Lovera’s has incomparably scrumptious homemade Italian summer sausage.

Local Flavor


Are you a locavore? If you’re just as concerned about where your food comes from as you are about how it looks and tastes, there are several restaurants and mar- kets that offer local fare that helps support Oklahoma farmers and ranchers.


In Oklahoma City, Nonna’s Euro-American Res to- rante and Bar, Irma’s Burger Shack, and Prairie Thunder Baking Company are a few tasty choices that feature lo- cal ingredients and seasonal specials. If you’re in the Tul- sa area, check out Elote Café, The Local Table, Thyme— An American Bistro, or The Canebrake in Wagoner. If seasonal, locally grown goodness is what you crave, community farmers markets and you-pick farms across the state may also be up your alley. Order a free copy of Oklahoma Agritourism’s Land Bounty Guide to map out your next foodie adventure.


Lovera’s Family Grocery is a favorite stop in Krebs.
