In 2000, Chef Vincenzo moved to Naples, Florida from Milwaukee, Wisconsin with a dream of one day opening his own restaurant. One afternoon while walking down 5th Avenue South, he stopped in front of the 365 building. He had a disposable camera in one hand and the vision of the “perfect” location in the other. He imagined how “cool” it would be for guests to be eating outside, facing the street watching the cars and people go by. Fourteen years later, his daydream of opening a restaurant at that spot materialized and became a reality. Following in his mentor, Paul Bartolotta’s footsteps, Chef Vincenzo opened a French restaurant and executed a dream menu using the French culinary technique, simple ingredients and soulful passion that epitomize who he is.
