Talia Castrogiovanni smiles when she thinks back to the first five years as owner of Ciao Bella, a popular Italian restaurant, 6500 E. Riverside Blvd., Loves Park.
“It’s been a series of trial and error,” she says. “It’s going well, but, like anything, it could always be better.”
In the competitive restaurant industry, perseverance and patience are keys to success. Talia and her staff have experienced plenty of both in the past five years, and they’re not afraid to try new things – and make mistakes – all in the name of providing a high-quality dining experience for customers.
