Our Executive Chef & Owner, Frank Salvi
Frank Salvi immigrated to the United States from Italy in 1963. He always enjoyed cooking ever since he used to cook alongside his mother, Giovanna when he was a child. This inspired him to become a chef. He returns to Italy several times a year for the latest recipes and new creations.
Mr. Salvi trained with Francesco Santarella, one of Italy’s top Chef ‘s who was his chef at DiNardo’s for 10 years.
After 46 years, he still does all of his own food buying, grows herbs and cooks all the dinner specials himself, which change every Friday to give customers a chance to sample the variety of his tastes.
Shortly after celebrating his restaurant’s 36th year anniversary, he received the Member of the Year Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Business Community from the Pound Ridge Business Association.
