Coppolillos Italiano Libertyville 7

My Name Is On The Door & My Heart Is In The Kitchen!

The restaurant lifestyle defined for me can be summed up as the relentless pursuit of perfection driven by passion! I can honestly say that I have spent the majority of my life in a kitchen and I don’t regret a single second that I have invested in honing my skills. I feel the most relaxed and in my element at the craziest times, the restaurant is slammed and the line needs guidance or an extra set of hands, I am a true italian and I love getting mine dirty!

After a recent Carpal Tunnel surgery, I had the time to reflect on how much of my life I have given to the industry and our customers. I also thought about all the physical, financial, and family sacrifices it has taken to get here. This was a very happy moment for me and brought back some great memories as well as a realization that it has and will continue to be worth it.

It was tough to sit sidelined in a cast and have these thoughts running through my head because I just wanted to get back in the mix and get to work with the staff, but in my eagerness to get back in the frey, cemented in my mind that I made the right decision to give my life to this pursuit.

I am very humbled and grateful for the reception Coppolillo’s Italian Steakhouse has received in Libertyville and for the outpouring of support the community has given to our namesake brand. I am committed to ensuring Coppolillo’s continues to be the premiere restaurant to dine at in Libertyville by providing amazing service and unprecedented, authentic Italian cuisine. Why???? Because my name is on the door!!!!

Striving for Perfection and Absolutely Driven by Passion.

Caio and see you soon…
