About

“I’m a self-made entrepreneur who has an innate passion for Italian food and the strong culture and history that created these irresistable delicacies.”

I am the owner of Mediterraneo Foods and La Mozzare, both specializing in the import of Italian gourmet foods. We distribute to wholesalers and retailers throughout the US, have an online consumer store, and we will be opening an Italian gourmet market and café, that overlooks the Hudson River, facing Manhattan, in early 2024.
