The work is always in a full swing in our kitchen! Everyone here is on fire when it comes to cooking. Wood-Fired, not gas fired, or microwaved, is what we're all about!  Tradition not new age is what we cling to - so we import our flour from Italy and use the best ingredients to make food like it was meant to be made -fresco!

No less important than a good cook is a good server.  Service to others is important to our vocation and is an integral part of the Italian culture.  I remember being in Italy talking to a stranger who was watering his trees.  After five minutes, Emanuele was inviting me into his home to join His Family for a seven course lunch!  This type of hospitality is being lost in our world but must be restored.  Our staff is trained to treat our guests as if they are part of our family.  Are we not all family?  Should we not be kind to everyone, even to strangers, especially strangers?  We sincerely hope that we do our part to make you feel welcome when you visit us at Trattoria di Bernardone!
