Italy Magazine sits down with Piero Selvaggio, the lifelong owner of Valentino in Santa Monica, discussing how he made an impact on Italian cuisine in America. Says Selvaggio: "It was an awakening. I began to understand so much about what Italian cuisine is really about: simplicity and quality. I realized how important details are, how decisive the chef is, what food elegance is, and finally how the restaurant needs a person to guide its customers through a gastronomic voyage."
