I can’t imagine anyone doubting the authenticity of Verde Restaurant and Bar — it’s as Italian as an Azzurri, Ferrari and Sophia Loren pizza. Owned by Antonio Ruggerino, Louie Kallas and Vince Squillace, the three cousins from Calabria combine their passion for food, wine and warm, bearhug Italian hospitality.Chef Ruggerino has had the Calabrian way ingrained in him since birth, but, not resting on his laurels, recently undertook a chef’s equivalent of a MBA at the Italian Institute for Advanced Culinary and Pastry Arts in Italy.
