“southern italian cooking”
In 1919 Gregorio Garofalo came over from Italy to begin his American dream... He rented a basement, put in his coal stoves, and sprinkled saw dust on the floor. With his knowledge of creating homemade wines, and his passion for cooking, Gregorio's dream began.... The name ..."Puglia" is a region in Southern Italy from which he immigrated. People came from far to indulge in the delicacies Gregorio prepared; Capuzzello (sheepshead), Tripe (the lining of the stomach of a young ox), and Pasta E Fagioli (pasta and beans), but what they loved the most was the way he treated everyone like his own family. Today with his grandson Joey carrying on the recipes and the values he taught him in his original NYC location where he sprinkled that saw dust, Gregorio is smiling! All of us at Original Puglia thank you for making Gregorio's dream a reality.
My FAVORITE! The food was great and the "shake your napkin" song will always be my favorite memory of this cute restaurant in Little Italy.
