Des Moines South Side Restaurant, Orlondo’s, Closing at the End of July
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Beloved south side Italian restaurant and bar, Orlondo’s, is closing its doors at the end of this month after more than 40 years in business. Known for its pizza and creamy Italian salad dressing, Orlondo’s was a staple in Des Moines and on the Great Western Bike Trail. “It was family oriented. I had my mom and dad helping me. I had my sisters helping me. So we always strived to make the best we could and we loved it. I devoted my life to it,” Orlondo’s owner Pat Renda said.
