The partners are Dogukan Solmaz and Roberto Sbaraglia, a Roman whose father has owned a restaurant in Rome, Antica, for the past 30 years (although Roberto’s passion is for cocktails, and he worked as a bartender at a beach bar in Fiumicino). The two met at hospitality school in Rome in 2005 and have been looking for a place in San Francisco for the past three years.

Their chef is Davide Cogliati, who has worked in SF for eight years (at Acquerello, Amarena, and doing some catering), Davide is originally from Milan, so there will also be risotto on the menu, oh you know it. Papa ( Marco Sbaraglia ) will also be making trips out to SF to check on things, as well as a cook from Antica who will come visit when it’s time for the menu to refresh.
