Both and rely on visitors to suggest their favorite in Cleveland and NE Ohio.  Then the staff makes several visits and also samples competing places before making the favorite decision.  After lots of tasty sampling we found that we agree with our visitors and declared that Casa Dolce at 5732 Mayfield Rd. in Mayfield Hts. Ohio has our favorite Italian Wedding Soup.  Margie Axelrod, owner of Casa Dolce, stresses the freshness of not only their very popular soups but all their other items including Cassata Cake, homemade Italian cookies and pastries and sandwiches, paninis, salads and more.  Our tasters remarked that the Italian Wedding Soup has a flavor reminiscent of their mothers and grandmothers recipes. Wacth Margie tell about her food.
