by Chef Giusto Priola.

He was the first to bring the renowned Cacio e Pepe pasta to the NYC tables. He later opened highly acclaimed restaurant “Cacio e Vino” (2006) which became the emblem of Sicilian Cuisine in NYC.


Giusto boasts a 20 year experience in the food business, which has led him to stand out as both an Italian culinary pioneer.
