I'm Antonio Cagnolo

Welcome to Antonello

I grew up in Italy, where food was a central part of everyday life. From a young age, I was always fascinated by the colors, smells, and flavors that filled my mother’s kitchen. As I grew older, my passion for food continued to grow, and I knew that I wanted to share the traditional dishes that I loved with others.

After studying culinary arts in Italy, I moved to the United States to continue my culinary journey. Over the years, I have worked in various restaurants and developed my own unique style of cooking, blending traditional Italian techniques with modern flavors and techniques. With this restaurant, I aim to offer patrons an authentic taste of Italy, using fresh ingredients and my own personal touch. I hope that you will join us for a delicious meal and experience all the wonders that Italian cuisine has to offer.
