For more than twenty years, Torre and David Solazzo have crafted an idyllic small-town life while bringing big, new flavors to Covington diners – first, at their fine-dining establishment, Del Porto Ristorante, and more recently at their gastropub, The Greyhound. Torre and David are both professionally trained chefs whose romance began in 1999, when they worked side-by-side on the line at Tra Vigne, one of Northern California’s most prestigious restaurants at the time.
We sat down together in our Louisiana Eats studios to hear the full story of how two of the Northshore’s favorite restaurants came to be. The whole family gets in on the act – even the Solazzos’ only child, 11-year-old Evelyn – who seems to love the restaurant business as much as Mom and Dad.
