About Us

It all started many years ago in my grandmother’s house in Napoli watching both my mother and grandmother cooking the traditional Sunday lunch. The slow and precise movements happening in front of my eyes, the surprising aromas, genuine laughs, love and passion that filled the kitchen was mesmerizing. Masterpieces were being created through such good times. 


Finally, the time was right…I found the perfect the spot in Lincoln Square for Italian inspired restaurant based on simple, fresh and seasonal ingredients. A place where you can bring friends, meet new ones and celebrate life through food, wine and conversation.
