During last year’s lockdown, I walked a lot of miles—like, a lot—on the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail. And on days when I would get really hungry during my hike, I would gaze longingly at Bocca Grande Italian Steakhouse as I re-entered Jackson Township and I would remember all the times I had heard how delicious the food was.
This is a year that calls for comfort food, so I suggest having a meal at Tozzi’s on 12th as soon as possible. Tozzi’s on 12th is known for its steaks, seafood and Italian dishes. The family business got its start in Magnolia in 1914, and now the fourth generation of the Tozzi family has the restaurant in Canton.
Every time I visited Angello’s 2 Go, I never stopped being surprised at how large the portions were and how good everything was. Angello’s 2 Go is an Italian takeout and delivery spot on Fulton Drive NW in Jackson Township that opened in 2016.
Enjoy traditional Italian cuisine at Papa Bear’s in Jackson Township.

Vincent Cessna typically arrives at his Italian restaurant, Vincent’s Pastaria, around 5:30 a.m. “My day starts with (making) 4 gallons of sauce every morning. It’s the lifeblood here. It goes in the lasagna, the meatballs, the pasta dishes,” Cessna said. “My anxiety goes down when the sauce is done, right around 8:30.”
As we pulled into the long driveway of The Twisted Olive, we stopped to let an idyllic family of deer cross the road. It was a good omen. The restaurant, in the former Belden family lodge tucked inside Green’s Southgate Park, was the perfect weeknight escape.
