Tallahassee, FL - After 60 years in service-- a restaurant in Tallahassee is getting a facelift . The owners of 'Mom and Dads' Italian Restaurant have decided to retire-- but not without leaving their delicious recipes behind.

The restaurant has changed hands, and is expected to see some other changes soon as their new owner hopes to take the restaurant from the 60's to the 21st century. But don't worry it will still have all of those recipes everyone loves. In fact the menu isn't expected to change much at all.

New Owner Jim Granganella explained, "You know we are going to do some upgrades inside and outside and also bring some of her recipe to the people and let them taste them and eat them. I just can't see this place closing after fifty years."

For those of you who have gotten used to Mom, or rather Diana, stopping by your table or cooking your food- don't worry. She will be stopping by to make people smile, and her son dean has all her recipes and is cooking in the back.
