Newly opened ‘Cesca Ristorante & Trattoria is already thriving in South Carolina’s growing restaurant scene. Their sister location, of the same name, has been bustling on Manhattan’s Upper West Side for almost 10 years.
Owner Anthony Mazzola’s parents emigrated to the Bronx from Southern Sicily. His father was a proprietor of a fresh pasta, ravioli and salumeria store, instilling in him a passion for quality food made from fresh ingredients. As a result, the ‘Cesca name always promises authentic Southern Italian cuisine in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
Patrons looking for a light snack can enjoy a variety of small plates and antipasti a la carte. The impressive wine list has nearly 300 varieties, paired with an array of local, artisanal cheeses. Paninis and pizzettes are available for lunch, while dinner guests indulge in hearty Italian classics, such as Spinach Tagliatelle Bolognese with Ricotta Salata and Basil, or Chicken Milanese with Arugula, Heirloom Tomatoes, and Red Wine Vinaigrette.
‘Cesca Charleston’s opening team was assembled, in part, by The Alfus Group. Our recruiters placed both their General Manager and Executive Chef in May, 2012. They’ve already achieved a successful, solid opening, with a lot of buzz from local culinary publications and news outlets. We look forward to watching their continued success.
