The restaurant and its chef have won several awards such as “Best Italian Food” in 2012 from Connect Savannah Magazine. Chef Roberto Leoci received the magazine’s title of “Best Chef” during 2011 and 2012. Chef Roberto Leoci has worked in some of the world’s best restaurants but decided to bring authenticity back to America’s Italian cuisine. His recipes balance simple ingredients with modern cooking techniques.
As a child, Leoci spent his summers in Sicily where he discovered an appreciation for the country’s cuisine. When he became older, he decided to work in the food industry and gained his culinary education in Florence. Leoci began his food career as a private chef for several famous families. Later, he helped a friend open a restaurant in Savannah and was inspired to start his own eatery. Roberto Leoci uses farm fresh ingredients from local suppliers. For instance, his beef and pork products come from the Hunter Cattle Company, while the Southern Swiss Dairy and Sweet Grass Dairy provide the restaurant’s cream, milk, and cheese. For fish, Leoci orders supplies from Wild Georgia Shrimp and Spatking Oysters.
