About Chef Nino

Originally from Avellino, Italy, just outside of Naples, Nino brings true Italian culture here to Norwalk. Like in Italy, he uses original ingredients starting with the olive oil and Italian specialties — bringing something special from “home” to the restaurant — here in Norwalk.

Nino travels back and forth to Italy at least three times a year to ensure that the latest Italian flavor is always infused into the restaurant.

Buon Appetito!
