Inspiration and work ethic.
People are everything
Louie’s two inspirations are his Mother (God Rest Her Soul) and his Uncle Sal. “Of course my mother is a great inspiration in both life and cooking- she was an amazing woman and has always been there for me. She was always cooking, and it was old school straight up regional Calabria deliciousness. I do my best to try to emulate what I’ve learned from her over the years,” he goes on to say “And my Uncle Sal… I respected the way he treated both his customers and his employees at his Italian restaurant back East. He’d welcome customers with a big smile, get to know them and you could tell he genuinely cared for people. At the same time he ran his restaurant like a tight ship and was respected and admired by his employees. He’s who I base my business ethics on and the way I treat people.”
