Since opening its doors in July 2003, Fascino has kept its promise of Italian without Borders. In fact, the restaurant has won a number of accolades from local critics; in addition to receiving high praise from their frequent patrons.
About the Chef
At the age of 25, Ryan DePersio made a mark in the food world. His creative, family-owned, new Italian restaurant in Montclair, received three-star reviews in the first six months it was open. The New York Times gave Fascino an “Excellent” rating, stating that Ryan was “born to run a restaurant.”
Ryan comes from a close-knit Italian family with a mother — Fascino pastry chef Cynthia DePersio — who set high standards; meanwhile, between his mom’s home cooking and his grandmother’s legendary meals, Ryan knew early on that cooking was his passion.
Ryan has made appearances on the Today Show, Food Network and Tony Tantillo’s.
About the GM
Chris Pavone first began working at Fascino in 2003. Starting at only 18 years of age, with no previous restaurant experience, he quickly found his footing. In 2011, he became the assistant manager of Bar Cara in Bloomfield. But after the restaurant was sold in 2013, he came back to Fascino to serve as general manager. He currently presides over house operations, controls all private party planning and execution, as well as managing the dinner service.
