Max Farina

Chef Owner

Born and raised in Mazara del Vallo, Sicily, Chef Max Farina landed to San Diego, California in 2011 bringing with him a love and passion for the traditional flavors of his homeland. As a young man he learned to respect the preparation of Italian food and the love of those traditions which went into each meal being prepared.
