About Us

Gabriel’s Food + Wine began with the Italian tradition learned in his mother’s kitchen and his father culinary trips.  With creativity, the restaurant has evolved by incorporating tastes from my travels around the world. 
Our Story

Where It All Began

My journey started in Palermo (Sicily) where even as a child, I had a strong passion for cooking. I was always the first to help my mother Rita and my father Salvatore in the kitchen after Sunday morning mass.

Growing up my best moments were when my dad, Salvatore, used to take me to discover different restaurants around Italy. He always wanted to find a better culinary adventure. This passion led him to travel the world, researching for superior food ingredients to reflect his style, distinctive flavors, and exclusivity providing for his family and friends an outstanding culinary adventure.

My passion is to visit the regions, meet the producers and to source the best quality ingredients to bring authentic Italian flavors to the American table.

I believe that an excellent meal is a pleasurable way to enjoy life.

Grazie e Buon Appetito
