The Next Generation:
The Busalacchi family boasts a proud reputation complete with a multitude of successful restaurants throughout San Diego county including Spaghetteria. Pietro and Joe Busalacchi, sons of Salvatore Busalacchi, have grown up learning from the best and are now taking their turn to do things their own way.
While still staying loyal to some of the tried and true traditional Italian recipes, Pietro spent years in L.A. studying the most popular new restaurants. This thorough research and development process paired with the support of some of the best restaurateurs in the business, Don Pietro is now the perfect combination of trendy and traditional.
Alongside the fresh modern take on Italian food is the broadening to a new area of San Diego as well. While the Busalacchi family has dominated the Little Italy, Point Loma and downtown restaurant scenes for years, Pietro and Joe are bringing their family name to Old Town. The next generation of Busalacchi’s have taken their vision to one of San Diego’s oldest neighborhoods and given it new life.
