The Nardone Family hails from Rocca d'Evandro, Italy.

Rocca d'Evandro is a small municipality of the Province of Caserta, in the region of Campania, located approximately 90 km northwest of Naples. The castle, around which the village was built, appeared in the latter half of the 10th century.  Surviving two powerful earthquakes (in 1117 and 1349) the castle was acquired by the Abbey of Monte Cassino. In the 16th century, it experienced its first renovation under the fief of Ettore Fiermosca. 

For generations, the Nardone family have been involved with food and wine, first as producers then as importers from Italy.

Owners Michelina and Giovanni, both classically trained Italian Chefs and  Italian wine experts, have brought their recipes from the old country to Don Giovanni.  Preparing dishes in the true Italian way, using only premium ingredients imported from Italy. In addition, we believe in using seasonal,  fresh, organic and locally sourced products.

To incorporate the true Italian way of dining is our promise to you, our customers, at Don Giovanni Ristorante.

Buon Appetito and Salute!
