Presutti's Villa (1933)

1692 West Fifth

Originally called T.A.T. Villa, the restaurant was located in the Presutti home at 1692 West Fifth.

An addition was later added onto the front of the family home (see inset in second photo below)

which they occupied in 1920. The restaurant closed in 1981. Before the TAT Villa, Salvatore Presutti

owned and operated the TAT and the First & Last Chance Saloon (open between 1916 and 1919;

it is shown in the bottom photo) at 519 and 409 West Goodale. Presutti's was later owned by Fred (Rocco)

Presutti, the son of Salvatore and Rosina.
