Homemade food on the East End.
Chef Luigi Tagliasacchi grew up in the restaurant business, learning the ins and outs from his father, Achille "Jack" Tagliasacchi. In his early twenties Luigi went to Italy to further his cooking skills.
He has owned and operated several businesses including Il Monestero Ristorante in the 80s, a joint effort with his father in East Hampton, and Espresso The Little Italian Market, in Sag Harbor in the 90s, a joint partnership with his wife, Robin. In 2006, Luigi and Robin opened Cappelletti Restaurant and Take Out, in Noyac.
Luigi and Robin, are the originators of the Focaccia Sandwich. Their idea was born out one of Robin's test kitchen sessions in the early 90s and has inspired countless imitators across the nation.
The couple have worked together for 31 years. They have raised three children and currently live in Sag Harbor.
Cappelletti is a casual eating establishment with some of the best homemade food on the east end. Stop in and say hi.
