Silvio DiGennaro

Chef Silvio DiGennaro opened his original restaurant here downtown in 1998. DiGennaro moved to his current location, at 102 S. Ross Street, in 2005. Before moving to Texas, he owned a few restaurants with his brothers in Italy, an ice cream shop and a coffee bar.

After 40 years in the restaurant business, nothing much has changed for Chef Silvio DiGennaro. He still gets up every morning to make bread for Volare Italian Restaurant and serve his customers, one reason why he continues to run his business.

“When I was younger, I went to chef school. It’s part of a chef’s dream, to own a restaurant,” he said.
