The Nardone family are multi-time, nationally acclaimed restaurateurs and founders of some of the top restaurants in America along with a family friend, the world-renowned Italian artist Tony La Stella. 
Bringing the heart and soul of their Italian heritage to Kirkland and the greater Eastside. To the Nardone family, fine food, good wine, great conversation, and hospitality with family and friends is a way of life, as is inventing, preparing, cooking, and serving great family recipes with their famous twist on certain traditional dishes. Using only the highest quality ingredients is both a passion and tradition that has been handed down for generations. The menu will feature many original and new family dishes.
Restaurant conductors Fernando & Cindy Nardone and Tony La Stella will run the show at Rimini with help from their entire family.   Fernando’s parents, “Papa” Giovanni and “Mama” Michelina are both professionally trained chefs. They will both share their rich history of traditional Italian winemaking and cooking with customers. Giovanni was born in the family vineyard in Italy. From a young age, he pursued a passion for winemaking, which eventually transpired into award-winning selections.  As well as being an experienced chef, Michelina was a trained opera singer in Italy known for singing as she cooks and at the table side for customers.
An old-school authentic Italian dining experience like no other, the Nardone family is going all out for this new restaurant:
As a Nardone family tradition, Prosecco will be given out as a greeting upon entering the restaurant. In the middle of your meal, you
will be given homemade cheese produced in-house. At the end of your meal, you will be presented with a digestive.

Tony La Stella will be performing Italian classics on his guitar for customers.
