Arpino Chef and Owner Steve Goda believes nothing has the power to draw people together like a delicious meal. He grew up watching his mother and grandparents working side by side in the kitchen to create family feasts. Steve honed his talent at local Italian restaurants such as Cioppino and Il Mercato. When he married his sweetheart, Melissa, more new culinary adventures began. The couple created many delightful dishes in their kitchen, merging and perfecting old family recipes. For years, they dreamed about opening a restaurant with the warm, intimate feeling of a family gathering.
In 2010, Steve and Melissa went to visit family in Arpino, a village in the province of Frosinone, Italy. They were deeply moved by the sweeping mountain vistas, old stone courtyards and friendly townspeople. The couple decided that one day, when they opened their own restaurant, they would name it in honor of this beautiful village. About a year later, Arpino Trattoria opened its doors—and a longtime dream became reality.
