La Marea. In Italian it means “the tide.” An apt choice in so many ways because of what the tide symbolizes...rising, receding, constant, never ending.
To understand what La Marea truly represents and is all about, you have to know what Juliana and husband, Nino Pisanzio are all about. “Nino and I grew up the same way,” begins Juliana. My family relocated from Gravina, Italy to Stamford, CT in 1966. “I was born in Stamford, but my parents and I moved back to Italy when I was young. Nino is from the Island of Capri and has had 27 years of restaurant experience. Both of us were always surrounded by food and family. There was always good food, drink, people, love and laughter. That’s what kept people together. My mother always taught me that food nurtures your body and laughter nurtures the soul.” Nino went through culinary and hotel management training in Italy, then earned his chops working his way up in the business from washing dishes to making beds; “But I loved it all,” Nino expressed. His mother, is a cook and baker in her own right, from Lyon, France; and his father was from Capri, so Nino also grew up with an inherent love of food. Together we bring our strong Italian heritage and traditions to La Marea and would love to share them with you.
While some of the pastas, pizzas, salads, and main dishes are stationary, the choices change frequently, reflecting the seasons. Reservations are strongly suggested!
