Restaurant Impossible - Mom & Dad's Italian Restaurant - OPEN

Mom & Dad's Italian Restaurant Restaurant Impossible

Chef Robert Irvine visits Mom & Dad's Italian Restaurant, a Italian restaurant in DeFuniak Springs, Florida.

At the restaurant he meets owner Carolyn Cuneo, who is reluctant to make changes to the restaurant she owned with husband George, who had sadly passed away 6 years ago.

When Robert investigates he finds that the food is poor, the decor is dark and dated and there were mounting debts to the amount of complimentary food being given away in the form of free salad, bread, meals to friends and family and also staff meals.

Robert works on improving the management, improves the menu and revamps the decor.

  1. We had a really nice restaurant here in DeFuniak Springs, Florida " Mom and Dad's. Restaurant Impossible came in and revamped everything, the restaurant serves Italian food, the decor this man chose looks like a cheap diner, gone were the Italian decor, the nice table cloths, good food (which now is frozen portion packed), it now looks like every diner in town. What a horrible job he did.
