The Story of Miele’s

    Back in 1954, Tom & Rose Miele opened one of the first Italian restaurants in northern Essex County. It soon became a successful family owned and operated restaurant. My mother Joann Amadeo applied to be a waitress at Miele’s in 1967, and the Mieles’ welcomed her as if she was part of the family. My brother Dennis started working at Miele’s in 1972 and I in 1974. In that year, my mother and father (Jerry) took the leap of faith and purchased Miele’s, keeping the name since it was so well established and recognized.

    Today as the sole owner of Miele’s, I am proud that our restaurant is still a landmark in Verona after 63 years. I made some changes to accommodate my vision, including establishment of a full bar and redesigning the dining area has helped Miele’s become the place to go. I like to think I have continued the tradition of Miele’s so that my customers, both long-standing and new, feel they are part of the Miele’s family.

    We have added new menu items such Stretche’s Famous Chicken entrees that can be served three ways Murphy, Crispy Garlic or Savoy. We also offer other Stretche’s items including Shrimp Beeps, Cavatelli and pot cheese. Plus many new fresh seafood and salad selections.

    I think my mother Joann and my brother Dennis would be happy that the Miele’s family continues.

    We hope to see you soon,
