Corrado's Cucina Italiana

Meet the Chef

4F7A8999_Hi Res Mr C copy.jpg

Born and raised in the southeast coastal region of Puglia (Italy) on my family’s vineyard and olive grove. I started working on the farm at a very young age, helping with the vineyards, learning how to preserve our fresh tomatoes and vegetables, learning family recipes and making pasta and sauces from scratch. I discovered my passion for food at an early age, as well as my appreciation for fresh ingredients, flavor, and family dining.

I was formally trained in Italy and immigrated to the United States in 1985. I have managed prestigious restaurants as  in New York City,, as well as owned several restaurants on the east coast and in Europe before coming to Carefree, AZ.

My passion for food, wine, and client camaraderie is unsurpassed,   All our food is made using fresh ingredients and traditional Italian recipes and techniques. And I strive for impeccable service.

Food is meant to cause joy and excitement. When you come to Corrado’s, I want you to be relaxed; sit with your family, friends, and colleagues and take your time to experience the true essence of enjoyable dining through exceptional service and the tastes of Italy.
