You're in expert hands with native Italian, Chef Luca Corazzina. A native of Padova, Corazzina's mother was a professional chef and the tortelloni doesn't fall far from the boiling water - mama passed on her expertise in Northern Italian cuisine to her son. As a boy he would help out in the kitchen, prepping or washing dishes. Corazzina's family emigrated from Italy to Chicago in 1986 and then realized the dream of opening a restaurant in the Little Italy neighborhood two years later.
