Ciao Vino Italian Kitchen
Italian | Gahanna
90 reviews

In the 1980s I was part of a family that came over from Faggia Italy in 1930. The experience showed me the simplicity of good food and importance of sharing the simple joy of fresh ingredients with those you love. A family tradition I still practice today is gathering with friends to have pasta every Sunday. An admiration of simple fresh ingredients is what life's about.

Inspired by: Carmela Rosato 1908-2000.
