He travels to Italy, visits booksellers and libraries, and draws inspiration from regional Italian recipes. He worked alongside chefs in Italy to hone his craft. Chef Mariano is extremely outgoing, and amusing his customers is his favorite part of the job.

Many Italian restaurants have a heavy American influence, but Acqua Santa is bona fide Italian. Our cuisine is not complicated, but rather simple.
