New Italian Steakhouse Asks for Community Help


CIRCLEVILLE – After the overwhelming questions and contact we got here at Sciotopost. We decided to contact the new business owners of Nonna’s Italian Steakhouse located at 129 West Main Street in Circleville. They have claimed a opening about mid January as they are still in the middle of construction phase of the restaurant.

Duncan Shoemaker, owner of the new restaurant says he’s always wanted to have his own restaurant and this is a dream come true to him.  “I’ve been cooking since age 12, said Shoemaker.  I’ve been in the food industry for about 17 years.  Ive also volunteers in church kitchens around the area.  Jefferson’s Church, Crossroads, and Idleburg Church in Stoutsville.  I went to Columbus Culinary Institute the Bradford School and graduated.  I’ve always loved to cook and I’ve always loved Italian food.

Shoemaker is still hiring positions for the restaurant.  He currently needs a dishwasher, a cook to work under the Sous Chef, and waitress staffing.  You can check the Facebook site for descriptions of the jobs and pay.  If you have interest you can stop by the restaurant anytime between 8 am and 12:30 pm.

The restaurant is also offering gift certificates for food once the store opens.  Shoemaker told us, “It would be a cool gift for Christmas that’s why we are offering it.  Who wouldn’t want a gift certificate for a new restaurant in town? Gift certificates will be hand delivered to Pickaway County residence if desired Or you can stop by the restaurant between the hours of 8am-1230pm Monday through Saturday.”


  1. Seen an article that had their tentative menu, just my opinion, but don’t think those prices will go over here in Circleville.

    • I’ve seen their rough draft menu and to be honest their the cheepest Italian or Steakhouse I’ve ever been to and I’ve been to a lot. You’ll be spending like 25% more at Olive Garden and most mom and pop places in Columbus or Lancaster. If their prices were any lower they’d have to shut their doors before the end of next year.

  2. Excuse me meant to say “seen” not “been to” because obviously I’ve never been there yet lol
