In May 2013, Aldo Zaninotto and Cameron Grant met for the first time. Exactly a year later, May 2014, they opened their first restaurant together, Osteria Langhe. Named one of the best Italian restaurants in the country, it's become a favorite of locals and visitors alike.
The success of their first venture led to the subsequent opening of their sister restaurant, Animale. Authentic, casual Italian food (and of course wine) located in the trendy Bucktown area of Chicago.
