Brioso Ristorante is a family‐owned restaurant that has served authentic Italian and Mediterranean cuisine to New Jersey and New York since 1995. Upon moving to the United States in 1979, Raffaele DiMaggio used his culinary background to work in several New York City restaurants including Elio’s and Petaluma, where he was the chef for 10 years.
While at Petaluma, he worked alongside his brothers, Pietro — who had previous experience working as a pastry chef — and Calogero, who also worked as a chef. Driven by the desire to share the traditional Sicilian recipes they grew up with, together the brothers opened their first restaurant in Marlboro, New Jersey in 1995, and just three short years later a second location in Staten Island, New York.
