This Is Us

The Short Story

Chef Egidio (Egi) Franciosa was born in a sea side city just outside Naples, Italy where food is a celebration of life, family and friendship. 

Egi and Jannah met in Europe and returned to the U.S. in 2010. 
By 2017

Il Forno's mobile Neapolitan pizzeria was born.

As the family food truck received an abundance of praise from devoted regulars,

it also inspired their dream to build a restaurant where the

Neapolitan love of people and fresh food are served

side by side.
The Franciosa family is passionate about bringing a taste of Naples to 

Nashville, Tennessee.

Buon Appetito!
