Italian to the core 

“There are no divisions in my kitchen or my restaurant. We always say, ‘The guest is an incarnation of God.’ I want people to feel that they are valued. They will be looked after as if they’ve gone to a relative’s house. I’m cooking food from my home, from meals I’ve had in my family. I tell them the stories of the dishes. I’m taking their hand, and taking them along. My aim is for you to leave feeling like someone had embraced you. That’s how food should be. I get happiness from seeing people’s eyes when they eat the food I’ve cooked. That feeling, when you can light up someone’s soul with something you’ve prepared, that is a privilege and an honor.” -
