Ending 2020 on a Hopeful Note

In addition to providing an exciting new culinary experience for those who visit, Amore Bistrot comes with an inspiring story. The owners, Massimo Biatta and Sonia Giovanazzi, immigrated with their sons from Milan this past Spring, at the exact moment COVID-19 hit. Little did they know, they were on the last flight to America before borders were closed to decrease the spread of COVID-19.

After quarantine, the family began building their restaurant from the ground up, located inside the historic Inn at Benicia Bay.

A year of hard work followed, with Biatta and Giovanazzi overcoming every imaginable obstacle. They are excited to finally share their Italian heritage with everyone who visits Benicia, and they’re even sharing recipes with anyone who wants to take a stab at creating their own home-cooked Italian meal!
