The Zuccarini family's pioneering spirit and passion for hospitality began in 1954 with Giacomo Zuccarini, the first importer of espresso machines to North America. Forty years later, Janet Zuccarini, entrepreneur and visionary, continued in her father's legacy with the creation of Gusto 54. Trattoria Nervosa in Yorkville and Gusto 101 on King West set the benchmark in Toronto for soulful service and innovative culinary experiences. Zuccarini has since built upon her successes, adding Gusto 54 Catering, the ever popular Pai Northern Thai Kitchen, Kiin and now Felix Trattoria on Abbot Kinney to the growing roster. Through quiet leadership and family ethos, Gusto 54 expands its community of restaurants with future projects Chubby's Jamaican Kitchen, Same Same, and Gusto 501.
