Luca Della Casa is the Executive Chef/Owner of  NONNA Osteria, Silo, and Nosh in San Antonio.

The English translation of Nonna is “grandmother.” Chef Luca Della Casa’s inspiration for his dream restaurant comes from his family and traditional recipes passed on by his grandmother. It is chef Luca’s goal to share that Italian family spirit and traditional flavors of northern Italy with modern flair.

“The inspiration for Nonna Osteria has always been the same,” explains Chef Luca Della Casa. “I grew up in a big family where my Grandmother and Mom cooked huge Sunday suppers every week. When developing the menu, I pulled from those memories for inspiration, recalling family and friends at the table, the rich conversations, the kinship that came from those gatherings. It is our goal to mirror that spirit and share those traditional flavors of Northern Italy executed with a modern flair.”
