Chef and Owner, Ambrogio "Ambrose" Buraglia, was born in Brooklyn, New York to parents Gaetano and Agnese Buraglia. He spent most of his youth in New York and some of it in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. When Ambrose was about 11 years old, his parents decided to move to California. It wasn't very long before his parents opened Villa Agnese Italian Restaurant in La Habra, California.
From a very early age, Gaetano taught his sons the art of Italian cuisine, preparing them to follow in his footsteps and become restaurateurs. Gaetano dreamt that Ambrose would have a restaurant of his own one day but sadly did not live to witness his accomplishments. With the opening of Guy Tano's Kitchen in Leander, Texas, Ambrose made his father's dream for him come true.
Guy Tano's Kitchen opened in December 2018 and was thriving when the Covid-19 pandemic hit. Faced with numerous unprecedented challenges, Ambrogio kept the restaurant open, devoted to his father's dream. As time went on, Ambrogio began forming dreams of his own which he intended to pursue once the lease ended in 2023. Rising costs and scheduled rent increases became too much to bear. Ambrogio decided it was time to close Guy Tano's Kitchen and pursue his dream, The Rolling Pasta Bowl.
