"It's certainly benefiting the community," said Sam Guarino, a business partner with Bella Milano Restaurant."Edwardsville is becoming more of a destination to people in other communities.

Bella Milano owners Sam Guarino and Craig Kalogerou refer to the dining experience as "fine casual" - a relaxed and comfortable dining atmosphere with a casual feel and price.
Food service is nothing new to neither Sam nor Craig - in fact, food is what brought them together in 1999 when Sam bought a Dairy Queen in Wood River and Craig was the area director for Dairy Queen Enterprises.
Sam and Craig designed the restaurant to be attractive to several demographics and believe they have achieved their goal of being upscale enough for the nicest dinner but not so pretentious that it would discourage the more casual diner.
Both Craig and Sam sat on the Dairy Queen Children's Miracle Network committee for several years and remain involved in other organizations and associations. Sam currently sits as a volunteer board member and former president of the MVCHA, which oversees high school hockey in Southern Illinois, as well as the Madison County Workforce Board.
In addition to networking opportunities and offering advice and suggestions to better run Bella Milano, Sam stated, "Our relationship with the Chamber has been one of the most rewarding experiences of doing business in Edwardsville and perfectly complements the excellent governmental staff of the city and quality and character of Edwardsville's residents."
Sam and Craig also plan to continue expanding Bella Milano's catering services for both corporate and personal events, with small events hosting 60 or fewer guests at the restaurant, seating for up to 300 at N.O. Nelson's Leclaire Center, and catering available to any venue in the Metro St. Louis area.
