Pasta Lovers: Eat your way through Ohio’s new Italian food trail

Pasta lovers don’t need to fly to Italy to get their fix of pasta and garlic bread.

Ohio’s Trumbull County Italian Food Tour maps out some of the best places for Italian food in one of the state’s major Italian communities. In the late 1800s, Italian immigrants started to settle in Mahoning Valley in Northern Ohio. Now, Trumbull County is honoring its past with an Italian Food Trail that offers everything from pizza, pasta and sandwiches to desserts and buttery garlic bread.

Trumbull County is about a four-hour drive from Southwest Ohio. Check out the map of all the stops along the way.
