Fabrizio came to America from Rome over twenty years ago, working his way through the restaurant industry hosting, waiting and managing in the finest Italian restaurants across California and Italy. It was only after many years experience and hard work that he decided to open his own unique restaurant – a place that provided patrons the best Italian fine dining experience without the austere service and atmosphere sometimes associated with fine dining. “We want you to feel like you’re coming home when you walk through the door,” explains Fabrizio.
After many months searching for the perfect space, Fabrizio, with the help of rock star partner Warren Cuccurullo (Duran Duran, Frank Zappa, Steve Vai) stumbled on a charming and intimate venue on Main Street with high ceilings and a beautiful stone floor. They set to work adorning the walls with artwork depicting the inside of St. Peter’s Cathedral and filling the space with delicate candle light.
