Lisa’s Story


My inspiration for Caruccio’s stems from my love of those dear to me, our beloved community and my long-standing admiration for my grandfather, an accomplished Italian chef. While living abroad, I rooted myself in each culture’s food scene, diving into kitchens and cooking classes. My time in Italy and Japan especially taught me so much about what beautiful, selfless hospitality looks like.

My hope is to elevate the culinary arts by hosting events at Caruccio’s dedicated to sharing beautiful food, so I can bring hospitality and artistic cuisine together. Through every shared experience, I want to offer the same warmth, love, and care to my community that has been so graciously extended to me along the way.
