Growing up in a South Bay food family, I spent my childhood at my parent’s restaurant, Gaetano’s, working alongside them in the kitchen and front of house. I come from a long list of restaurateurs, my great grandparents started locally loved Giuliano’s Deli in Gardena, inspiring my parents, Steve and Dori, to open Gaetano’s Deli in 1993, which eventually transformed into Gaetano’s Restaurant. It had been a dream of mine to open a modern California Italian restaurant for as long as I can remember. The stars aligned in 2015 and my husband and I partnered with my brother to open Bettolino Kitchen in Redondo Beach. We're known for our homemade pastas, locally sourced ingredients and outstanding hospitality.
