About Paola & Stefano

Executive Chef Paola Bottero and her son Stefano provide an authentic Italian dining experience and a warm welcome on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Having immigrated to America from Rome at age 16, Paola brought with her the traditions of the Italian kitchen and the embracing hospitality of the Italian home. Partner and Front Manager Stefano Marracino adds youthful enthusiasm and cordiality to the experience. Together, they are committed to the freshest ingredients and the truest interpretations of La Cucina Italiana.

The historic Carnegie Hill location is a European-like enclave neighboring “Museum Mile”, sophisticated shops and prestigious schools. The landmark building is also home to the Wales Hotel.
