Grande’s Italian Restaurant & Trattoria by Giuseppe & Graziella Luppino is located in the beautiful Donald Ross Village of Palm Beach Gardens, FL.
Graziella and Giuseppe Luppino decided to share their love of food and dining with the world when they opened Grande’s Bella Cucina of Palm Beach Gardens on February 19, 2007. Students of Italian cuisine and dining since childhood, owning their own restaurant has been a dream come true and you can taste their passion in every dish.
If you’ve tasted the Tiramisu or Ricotta Cheesecake, then you are familiar with the work of Grande’s Bella Cucina Executive Pastry Chef Graziella Luppino. Graziella’s parents are Italian immigrants who opened their first restaurant in upstate New York in 1974. At the age of 7, Graziella was already a part of the staff. She took on more responsibilities as she grew older and by the time she graduated college she knew the love of hospitality would never leave her. In particular, she developed a special talent for desserts. Still using her mother and grandmother’s recipes, she prepares all of Grande Bella Cucina’s desserts personally every morning.
Every dish on Grande’s Bella Cucina menu is created from start to finish by Executive Chef Giuseppe Luppino. An alumni of the prestigious Johnson and Wales Culinary school of Rhode Island, Giuseppe was head chef of the original Grande’s Bella Cucina in upstate New York. Giuseppe also studied under Chef Stefano Scala, the private chef of Pope John Paul II. Giuseppe and Graziella decided they were ready to open their kitchen to the world.
What they created is a restaurant with the warmth and personality of a family kitchen with the sophistication and elegance of a first class dining experience. Grande’s Bella Cucina uses only the finest and freshest ingredients, prepared daily. What else would you expect from a restaurant that has no freezers?
Grande’s Bella Cucina features a private dining area perfect for parties, dinners and gatherings of all kinds. Behind large wooden castle doors is seating to accommodate groups of up to 20, with a large plasma screen, pc connection and wireless internet access for business meetings. Speak with the private dining specialist to arrange for special menus and pricing that fits any budget. We are happy to accommodate any request to personalize your experience from placing your corporate logo on the menu, to champagne toasts or specialty homemade cakes. The private room does not carry a rental fee and valet or self parking is available.
It took 2 years for Graziella and Giuseppe Luppino to create Grande’s Bella Cucina menu. They included their own families recipes and made several trips to Sicily to learn the latest and most popular dishes.
