Authentic Italian food right from the heart of Italy.
Owner and Executive Chef Giuliano Casulli graduated as a Certified Master Chef from Scuola Al Berghiera, Castellana Grotte, Bari, Italy. During the summer Giuliano moved to Venezia, Italy and worked at numerous hotels while on break from school. During school he worked in local restaurants in his home town of Putignano. After graduating Giuliano moved to Texas, where he worked as a Sous-Chef and ultimately an Executive Chef. Giuliano then became a partial owner of his former restaurant Piccolo Mondo in the Dallas Ft Worth Metroplex. During this time he was the winner of the 1995 Zagat Best Italian Restaurant, among many People's Choice Awards from Taste of Arlington. In 2012 Giuliano decided that it was time for a change, and moved to the beautiful city of Colorado Springs, Colorado. On August 3, 2012 he and his staff brought the taste of Southern Italy to the citizens of Colorado Springs. The Restaurant and Giuliano quickly won Best Real Italian By the Experts from the Gazette's Best of the Springs in 2013.
