ANTONIO RUGIERO, CEO/PRESIDENT — ANTONIO’S CUCINA ITALIANA & ROMAN VILLAGE CUCINA ITALIANA

CANTON | DEARBORN HEIGHTS | FARMINGTON HILLS | DEARBORN | WWW.ANTONIOSRESTAURANTS.COM

How do you spell success? By following in the footsteps of your forebears, and then taking it to the next level. Expanding on the same foundation that Antonio Sr. and Mama Rita started 54 years ago at the Roman Village in Dearborn, after they arrived in Detroit from Italy, Antonio’s Cucina Italiana and Roman Village Cucina Italiana have built their reputation on great food and a strong family work ethic. Their success is built on an old school foundation, with a modern-day business approach; this is one of their recipes for success. Just as in the old days, Anthony Rugiero and his team keep it simple, fresh, and made to order. “This is not a part-time job; the restaurant business is tough,” Rugiero says. “This would not happen without my family. My mom and my brothers all share the responsibilities, and we run all of our locations as one big family restaurant. This keeps the quality and service consistent at all locations, earning us the reputation of a real authentic Italian restaurant.”
