From a young age, Tony knew his passion. His father was a prestigious chef & he came from a long line of chefs. Tony came to America at the age of 14, where he began working as a busboy. He then became a waiter and eventually a manager of restaurants such as Alex & Henry’s, and Dario’s. He went on to open Spaccarelli’s Ristorante and has run it since 1986.  He loved his hometown of Pietraferrazzana, Italy and would visit his friends and family as often as he could. He loved going out to dinner every Monday night with his family, he loved watching soccer & spending time with his granddaughter. He was the most loving, kind and devoted husband, father and grandfather to his family. He had many friends & loyal customers, and he will missed by all that knew him best. The legacy of Tony’s spirit, kindness, passion, strength and inspiration will live on through his family & friends.
