Our Story

DITONDO is a fourth-generation family business founded by Sebastiano Di Tondo. He was born in Abruzzo and immigrated to the United States as a young adult. In 1904 he became a partner in a tavern on Seneca Street, and in the 1930s he ventured out on his own opening a restaurant at 370 Seneca. Four generations of the DiTondo family have carried on his legacy. 

In 2019 Rita Di Tondo, Sebastiano’s great-granddaughter, and her husband, Fabio Consonni, moved to Buffalo to be the fourth generation of the family to run the restaurant. They embarked on their first ever renovation project, modernizing the kitchen and restoring the historical character of the building built in 1890. In October 2021 DITONDO once again opened its doors.
