Meet Our Chef

Antonio was born in his grandmother's house on the Isle of Ponza just off the coast of Naples Italy. His passion for cooking began in her kitchen when he was only 9 years old. When Antonio came to the states in 1999, he stayed true to his heritage of producing the kind of Italian food he cooked with his grandmother.

Essential ingredients and techniques set his food apart. Antonio’s recipes are simple and fresh, just like in his grandmother’s kitchen.
