Aida was raised in New York, but, since childhood, traveled to Connecticut every weekend to work at her
father’s Italian restaurants. Witnessing how her father welcomed anyone and everyone to the dinner
table, she learned and embodied the concept that true hospitality is innate, unselfish, and forever
memorable. From this, was born her desire to establish a business where all customers would feel they
are guests in her home.
Upon graduating from the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration, Aida returned to the city
that she loves to continue working in hospitality, eventually joining her brother again to open their own
restaurant in the West Village of Manhattan.
