Get ready for a delightful evening filled with delectable food, refreshing drinks, and a vibrant community atmosphere. Join us on Thursday, October 5th, at Farming Hope’s Refettorio, where we'll be hosting a Pop-Up Guest Chef Dinner featuring Executive Chef Daniella Banchero of Piccino Restaurant.

Piccino Restaurant has been a beloved culinary destination since its humble beginnings in 2006. Over the years, it has blossomed and changed locations into a full-scale restaurant and cocktail bar, offering private event spaces and an annexed coffee bar. Despite the growth, Piccino's mission remains unchanged: to provide a warm and friendly environment where the finest ingredients take center stage.

At Piccino, they take pride in their commitment to locally sourced, sustainable ingredients. They cultivate most of their produce at their own farm in Healdsburg, CA. Each pizza, pasta, baked good, appetizer, and entrée is thoughtfully crafted by their dedicated kitchen staff, led by the talented Executive Chef, Daniella Banchero.

Executive Chef Daniella Banchero

A native of the Bay Area, Daniella has spent her entire life in the restaurant business. A self-declared restaurant brat, her family owned a family-style Italian restaurant where she was raised around. After a short stint working at an elementary school, Daniella realized food was her passion and followed her heart to New York to attend the Culinary Institute of America. From there, she took a job working for Michael Tusk which greatly enhanced her love, skills, and passion for regional Italian food. After honing her talents at a few other San Francisco restaurants, Daniella found a home at Piccino cooking seasonal, fresh food rooted in the Italian tradition.
