TRANSFORMATION OF A SINGULAR RESTAURANT
into an internationally acclaimed brand well-established worldwide in the culinary scene
ANTICA PESA ROMA
Owned & operated by the Panella family since1922, when they first converted a 17th-century customs post in Trastevere, Rome, into a humble osteria. Now owned by the fourth generation of the Panella family, Francesco, alongside his brothers, has transformed the history of the Antique Scales into an internationally recognized restaurant of authentic Roman cuisine.
ANTICA PESA BROOKLYN
In 2012, the fourth generation of the Panella family opened their first overseas outpost in Williamsburg Brooklyn, a location that pays homage to their Roman home. Located on the other side of a river with the heart of the city facing it, just like their original location of Antica Pesa in the neighborhood of Trastevere, Rome. Williamsburg, Brooklyn is also a neighborhood that has grown and forged its character through a transformation in similar ways.
A concept developed by Francesco Panella and Tao Group Hospitality, this Ristorante, Bar & Caffe, is a ferocious indoor & outdoor destination for Italian cuisine in the Chelsea Flower District Manhattan. Located inside the Moxy Chelsea, Feroce combines the best of both worlds by importing select ingredients from historic brands and small producers from across Italy and sourcing fresh produce from the best local purveyors in New York.
As a leader in the hospitality industry, Francesco continuously works as a consultant to create a variety of innovative concepts worldwide.
