About Senso Unico:
Senso Unico is an undiscovered Osteria nestled in Sunnyside, Queens, helmed by Chef/Owner Vincenzo Garofalo and his wife/partner Laura. The two met in Avellino, Italy and like something out of a fairytale fell in love. Determined to share their love and deep appreciation for authentic Italian cuisine with New Yorkers, they fulfilled their dream opening their own restaurant.
Chef Garofalo is an under-the-radar culinary force, who has cooked for numerous celebrities throughout his career including Andrea Bocelli, high profile political dignitaries and the late legendary Chef Gualtiero Marchesi. He began mastering the artistry of cooking in his homeland of Italy, honing his skills at Michelin-starred Antica Osteria Nonna Rosa and Il Pellicano. Upon arriving in the U.S. with Laura, Chef Garofalo went on to further develop his talents with the Maccione family at Sirio Ristorante in The Pierre Hotel and Le Cirque. As a creative visionary, he personally selects ingredients locally and makes everything in-house including the pasta and the sauces. His dishes are inspired by his mother and grandmother’s classic Italian recipes prepared with surgical precision and transports guests to Italy for an authentic culinary experience.
