We visited Cucina Basilico, an authentic Italian restaurant with chefs using family recipes for guests. Meet Chef and Co-Owner, Stefano Panzeri, Chef and Co-Owner, Danilo De Corato and Restaurant Manager, Sara De Corato and learn about their passion for moving to the United States from Milan to open their restaurants. This dynamic group opened their second location in La Mesa at 7200 Parkway Dr. in La Mesa, serving the same authentic menu with genuine ingredients as their first location located at 3755 Murphy Canyon Road in San Diego. Meet Cucina Basilico via “La Mesa Live” here: youtu.be/jg00MHki8bU.
