Luciano Canova

Chef Luciano Canova was born in 1949, on a small farm just outside of Rome, Italy. Chef Luciano grew up with his parents & grandparents where good food was always been the staple that kept his family together. His passion for food was instilled in him as a small child in his home, and led him to attend the prestigious Culinary Institute of Italy. After graduating, Luciano worked all around the world perfecting his craft in places like Switzerland, Germany and on a luxury cruise line.  Luciano’s passion has always been for food and people, and he always dreamed of opening authentic Italian Trattorias after moving to the US.
