WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A trio of Westchester County "family-run" Italian restaurants, Sam's in Dobbs Ferry, and Francesco's and La Manda's, both in White Plains, are featured in an article in The New York Times.

Sam’s was opened for business in 1952 by Sam Ciancio, who is from Calabria, Italy, and grew up on Main Street, where the restaurant is located after coming to the United States at age 9, reported The New York Times.

Francesco Spinali began work as a waiter at the establishment that is named for him in 1964, according to The New York Times. Spinali, of Florence, Italy, took over as chef, and bought it in 1970, and still cooks there, The New York Times said.

Jerry Musilli, a native of Abruzzo, Italy, purchased La Manda’s in 1967, along with partners, according to the newspaper.

Previously, the Albanese family owned La Manda's, which served pizza in the 1930s, said The New York Times.
