Scotti’s Italian Restaurant

Located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati, Scotti’s has been a family-owned, family-run establishment since 1912 by four generations. Named for the popular Italian opera star Antonio Scotti, this eatery is far from your typical “Italian-American” restaurant.
For 100 years -- since 1912 -- Setco has been a leader in the design, manufacture & service of high performance precision spindles and slides; which includes belt-driven, CNC, gear-driven, motorized models, high speed, high frequency spindles, and complete lines of dovetail, hardened way, linear bearing, tooling, utility slides, and single and multi-axis machine modules. SETCO products are recognized worldwide for accuracy, durability and quality.
Western Hills Country Club
Founded in 1912, Western Hills Country Club is one of the oldest, and most prestigious full service private clubs in Cincinnati. Successor to the earlier Elberon Golf Club, members purchased a parcel of property in "back Price Hill," at the corner of Cleves-Warsaw Pike and Neeb Road, that had been locally known as the Short Farm. The land encompassed approximately 100 acres, and was located nine miles from downtown Cincinnati. Many changes and expansions have continued to shape the Club throughout its existence offering its members a wide array of amenities.
