At the ripe age of 5 years old in Abruzzo, Italy, she began learning from her grandmother how to make pasta.
Today, Nonna is at the helm of the Paesano Hampton Park kitchen and prepares her famous hand-made gnocchi, sauces and desserts daily, many of which are from 19th Century recipes handed down through generations.
These incredible home-style Italian dishes have built the foundations of Paesano’s reputation and with Paesano Restaurant, her wondrous cooking has been complimented by exemplary staff.
Nonna’s son, Frank Capuzzi and his partner Angelo LoMonaco have embodied her pursuit of excellence by founding the Paesano Group and finding the most qualified staff to bring you the Best Restaurant in Hampton Park.
