Il Basilico owners, Anna and Sal Di Pierno, opened their Italian Trattoria in 2006. Their Italian food expertise began during childhood in Naples, Italy, where they grew up learning authentic dishes alongside their Mother, Mama Pia.
Sal became a Chef in Italy. He has honed his skills in specialized pizza and bread. His creativity shows in the unique pizzas he presents daily. Sal also believes in offering “Slow Food”, which is the art of dining and savoring food through several, slowly presented courses.
After gaining authentic Southern Italian cooking knowledge from home, Anna attended Culinary School in Naples. She specializes in “Modern Cuisine”, healthy and organic approaches to meals, and yet her delectable desserts exemplify her love affair with food!
