TUTTO FINISCE A TARALLUCCI E VINO


"All ends well with Tarallucci E Vino" is the famous Italian saying rooted in the tradition of resolving any matter over a glass of wine and tarallucci, the classic southern Italian cookie.

Established in 2001 Tarallucci e Vino brings the ease and casual elegance of Italy’s bars and “caffés” to New Yorkers and visitors. Housemade pastries, fresh pastas and New York Greenmarket inspired dishes uphold the Italian ideal of high quality, sustainable, locally sourced, seasonal food, prepared to highlight the natural beauty of the ingredients. Our versatile wine list features gems from family-run and biodynamic wineries in Italy and Europe, which complement the menus beautifully and create a true Italian dining experience at five Manhattan locations.

WHO WE ARE


WHO WE ARE


LUCA DI PIETRO

Founder

Luca Di Pietro hails from the Central Italian region of Abruzzo. He founded Tarallucci e Vino in 2001, while running the US subsidiary of an Italian coffee company. Luca set out to Italy's dining culture, something he missed and wanted to recreate in New York. That simple idea soon grew into a group of restaurants both European expats and New Yorkers appreciate for their authentic Italian appeal and warmth. Luca plans to play for the Italian National Team in the 2018 World Cup.

LORENZO BARICCA

Wine Director

Lorenzo grew up in in Vezzano sul Crostolo, Emilia Romagna watching his grandfather make wine. He owned and opened wine bars in Italy before moving to New York. He joined the Tarallucci e Vino team in 2007, becoming a partner in 2013, and has made it his mission to fill the wine list with unique, small-batch producers. He takes frequent trips back to Italy to see his family and to discover new winemakers, selecting the grapes that cannot be found anywhere else in the US.
