Silvio Cuomo: Executive Chef/Owner

Silvio Cuomo was born and raised in Naples, Italy. His passion for cooking began at a very young age. He would often times sneak into the kitchen and prepare dishes while his mother and father were away at work. After high school, Silvio attended culinary school in Naples.
