Meet Chef Gio

It has been since the opening of Bella in September 1998 that Executive Chef and Owner Gio Calapai discovered his culinary identity.Chef Gio’s artistry stems from having a Sicilian background which is evident in his cuisine.  Through the years his experience of being trained by multiple Grade A Chefs, combined with his father’s worldly knowledge of the hospitality business, along with his own studies, transformed him into a versatile and innovative Executive Chef.  His attention to detail, passion for flavor, and ability to produce Five Star Quality Cuisine for Large Events has made him one of the best Chefs in New England. Chef Gio loves to share his knowledge and enthusiasm for food with his patrons through his Demonstration Dinners which he schedules every couple of months.  He is known for Authentic Italian Cuisine with a Contemporary twist.
