The restaurant formerly known as Katherine's at 8159 N. Main St., Eden, has changed its format and will now be known as Mamma Mia's.
Katherine Ochal is still owner, but the menu now concentrates on Italian-American stuff with the most expensive item on the menu priced under $16. Sauces are homemade; there's Chicken Cannelloni with Sherry Tomato Sauce and Manicotti. Becky Heltz is still the chef. Hours are from 4 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
But there's even more news from this location: the popular wine and food evenings presented at Katherine's are back, and they are now open to both men and women. The first is scheduled for 6:45 p.m. Jan. 23 and will feature the wines of Francis Ford Coppola. This involves a five-course dinner with five different wines for $55. (Salmon Cannelloni and Artichoke Ravioli are on the menu.) For reservations, call 992-4911.
