Opened in December 2008, L'Artusi is named for Pellegrino Artusi, (1820-1911) and his self-published cookbook La Scienza in Cucina e L'Arte di Mangiare Bene (The Science of Cookery and the Art of Eating Well). L'Artusi presents a modern take on traditional Italian cuisine, combining comfort and creativity.

Our wine program features a mostly Italian wine list, presented by region with a map of DOCs and DOCGs accompanied by traditional local dishes, helping to demystify Italy, the most diverse viticultural nation in the world.

Our 110 seat restaurant, features two floors of comfortable banquette seating, extended traditional bar, cheese bar and a chef's counter overlooking the open kitchen. Private dining opportunities are also available in our 2500 bottle walk-in wine cellar.

Joe Vigorito

Executive Chef

A native of Ohio, Joe Vigorito's earliest experiences in the restaurant industry were at his uncle's sub shop where he worked as a jack of all trades – from washing the dishes and bussing the tables to working the grill and serving customers. It wasn't until Joe was at The Ohio State University studying Social and Behavioral Sciences when he missed a home cooked meal did he begin to explore the culinary arts.

Upon graduation, Joe enrolled at The French Culinary Institute and formally began his career as garde manger at one of NYC's original trattoria's, Lupa. Since then, Joe has worked in several of New York City's most cherished Italian restaurants including Morandi, Bar Milano, the well-loved but short lived Carmine Club Café, and The Eddy in the East Village.

Not to be overlooked, he’s also spent time in several of the Epicurean Group’s kitchens, first as the sous chef of dell’anima and later as the executive sous chef of L’Artusi under his friend and mentor Gabe Thompson.  Thus, upon leaving Via Carota to assume the role of executive chef of L’Artusi back in September of 2016, it was more of a home coming to Joe, and he couldn’t be happier.

Jessica Craig

Pastry Chef

With over 12 years of pastry experience under her belt, Jessica Craig is the sweet secret behind the mouth-watering desserts at L’Artusi and dell’anima.  A native New Yorker, Jessica has fine-tuned her craft while working for and overseeing the pasty program at several restaurants in the Hampton’s, working with the executive pastry chef of an international catering company in Queens, and most recently as pastry sous chef for Andrew Carmellini’s Tribeca hot spot, Locanda Verde. She has also spent time with some of the city’s top pasty professionals including stages at Eric Ripert's Le Bernadin and at Michael White's Marea.

 Jessica’s passion extends beyond the kitchen. She is active in the community, raising awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Research. She also guest teaches at Long Island Riverhead Boces for the high school level special education cooking classes.

Jorie Morales

General Manager

Jorie’s passion for the hospitality industry came early. What started as a part time job in college has taken him from San Francisco to New York City two separate times while working in some of the most iconic and most loved spots in the country. Jorie also knows his way around a restaurant having had positions ranging from server and bartender to corporate trainer, all preparing him for his current role as the General Manager of L’Artusi. 

Whether it be your first or 50th time, Jorie and his team are focused on making each stay impeccable, as for him, “Hospitality is far from servitude, but rather preservation of humanity.”

August Cardona

Managing Partner

Mr. Cardona began his career in the Finance sector but an undeniable connection to the hospitality industry and a passion for food and wine led Mr. Cardona back to the food & beverage industry.
