what's a "morluski?"

The Morluski Story...

When Jeannine Morlacci’s father-in-law, Domenico, first arrived in Kaisertown, South Buffalo from Italy, and began handing out his "Morlacci Construction" business cards, the Polish community members were confused. They couldn’t pronounce his last name. Perhaps he wasn't Polish?

"Ah," he’d explain, "An unfortunate mistake — the card should read Morluski," he'd say with a wink. And eventually they welcomed him as their own. Though Domenico would always come clean in the end, "Morlacci Construction" served as a good tool to help his neighbors become customers and friends.


Domenico Morlacci passed away in 2009. Jeannine, from a Polish family herself, honors her father-in-law by naming this restaurant in the spirit of Domenico's ingenuity. His infectious laughter, work ethic and love of family, friends and food live on through "Morluski's."

Local partners matter to us.

We are small business owners. In addition to Morluski's, we own and operate Ms. Jean's Childcare in Akron and Attica. 


We believe that small business owners and local farmers are the heart of what makes our community and our country so special. We buy local whenever possible, even if it costs a little more.  


Below are just a few of the businesses that we partner with and believe in:
