Grew up in Canton/Massillon, currently living in North Canton. While there are many options for good quality food within minutes of our house in belden village sometimes it's nice to eat at some of those family run restaurants that have not been commercialized.
One of the places we like to frequent is Mama Guzzardi's. Very good italian food in the way of salad, bread and pasta of virtually all kinds. Excellent service and great food.
If you drive north towards Ravenna there is a amazing restaurant called Arnie's it is a steak house and has been family owned and operated for nearly 40 years. Food is great and while the building does not look like much from the outside If you are into finding diamonds in the rough this is truly one of them.
