Scopriteci - Discover Us Our History

Co-owner Dario Nicotra was born in Livorno, Tuscany. He grew up in a traditional Italian Family, where a delicious array of dishes was prepared by “Mamma Fausta,” with glasses of hearty wine carried to her table by Babbo Alcide (Daddy). This scene represents a fundamental part of everyday life in Italy where joy is found in sitting together with family.
As a business man and corporate executive, Dario has traveled the world, experiencing food from many countries. The restaurants, wine bars, bistros, cafes that he frequented in Europe and  America taught him to appreciate not only food and drink, but also, people and community. And it was this ideal that planted the seed for Acquolina.
Dario moved to the Bay Area in 2010, taking a job as CFO for a transportation corporation headquartered in San Francisco. At the time, he wasn’t thinking that he’d launch a restaurant. But one day, exhausted by trying to find good Italian fare in the city, he decided to build the place that everyone was looking for but that did not yet exist. During one of his trips back to Livorno, Dario mentioned the idea to his chef-friend Marco Marianelli. After three years of careful planning, Dario and Marco made their dream of creating a true “Tuscan Trattoria” in North Beach a reality, opening Acquolina at 1600 Stockton Street in May 2015.
