to the vibrant town of Wakefield,” says Caturano, adding: I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my favorite culinary dishes with this community, and look forward to their input and feedback.”

The culinary program will showcase coastal Italian classics, with nightly specials that reflect the catch of the day from local waters. The menu is comprised of an array of sfizi and primi options to start, signature homemade pastas, secondi courses such as roasted cod oreganata, cioppino  and of course fresh grilled tonno steak (tonno is the Italian word for Tuna)  and decadent desserts.
