Connections: Summer of Food - What Does "Italian Food" Really Mean?

Our Summer of Food series continues with a conversation with the owners of Fiorella, an Italian restaurant in the Rochester Public Market. It is operated by a husband-and-wife team with Italian roots. They have particular views on where ingredients come from, and how to source for the restaurant. We talk to them about what “Italian food” really mean in the United States. Our guests:

  • Gino Ruggiero, chef and co-owner of Fiorella
  • Alison Ruggiero, co-owner of Fiorella
