What do you do in your life (work and fun)?

I read, cook and exercise. And I renovate my house!

What made you leave Italy and chose LA?

It was a sentimental choice. I had no idea that I was going to stay this long when I first arrived in LA, but I got used to this city and really enjoy my life here.

Please share your best memory in the City.

With my friends sharing a meal I cooked for them and good wine…

What made you choose this specific location and outfit?

It was close to my house, lol!!

I am proud to represent Italian food and its tradition, rich of our unique flavors.
