Welcome To The Black Italian

Your Authentic Italian-Soul To-Go Specialists!

We make our food with a mission to fill your hunger with unique and delicious foods cooked with love. We bless each meal before it comes to you and we are encouraging families, friends, co-workers or any group to enjoy meals together, becoming one in breaking bread together and fulfilling your hunger physically and spiritually. As a Kentucky Proud vendor, we support our local farmers and provide the utmost of quality in our ingredients and recipes.  Our cuisine is homemade and  our meats are grilled.  We are BBB accredited with an A+ rating and value the support of our community!  Offering fast casual dining, The Black Italian also offers individual boxed catering, family meal packages and family style catering.  Our family style catering has a unique concept: this means your dishes are readily available for delivery and set up so that all can present and serve themselves. This is an old authentic Italian traditional way of eating. Everyone gets to pick a little of what they like or a lot of what they love! We always provide disposable serving-ware and also provide the option of disposable eating-ware and chafers and sternos if needed. Plus, everything is yours to keep including any left-over food which is one of the differences between traditional full-service caterers and what The Black Italian’s Family Style Catering To-Go method is.

The Black Italian offers authentic Italian Soul cuisine cooked with love and a mission to bring family and friends together for food and fellowship.


Happy Holidays from The Black Italian! We have recently received a multitude of Family Meal Packages and Catering Orders.
Due to limited staff and supplies, we unfortunately will not be able to fulfill any individual orders until after Christmas.
Orders which have already been placed will still be available for pickup and/or delivery at the original date/time.
We will reopen Shoppe Tuesday, December 29th. We’re so sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your support!
