What People Are Saying

Chef Jacques Pépin
“There’s always space for another Italian cookbook in my kitchen. Simple, easy, and straightforward, Silvio’s cooking will regale you, satisfying your belly and your soul.” --(Chef Jacques Pépin)
Dina Stavola
“I am 100% Italian, yet have not had the chance to fly over to Italy, so instead of pulling out my passport, I head to the Connecticut shoreline where I feel like I am truly getting a slice of authentic Italian cuisine! Chef Silvio has been such a delight to work with—so entertaining on air and just as warm off the air—I feel like he is one of my relatives the way he always greets me with open arms and a freshly piped cannoli!
The only downfall? The umpteen pounds I have put on from a few too many visits to his restaurant.” --(Dina Stavola, FOX-TV CT)
Chef Christopher Prosperi
“The countryside of Campania comes alive in Cooking with Chef Silvio. These simple, flavorful, and rustic dishes inspire families to come together. Bring the bounty of Italian cuisine and the engaging history of the region to your table.” --(Chef Christopher Prosperi, Metro Bis Restaurant, Simsbury, CT)

Meet the Author

After learning the art of cooking from his grandmother, Silvio Suppa brought his knowledge of l'arte della cucina to the United States in 1968, where he became one of the architects of the cuisine now known as "New Haven Italian." After cooking at New Haven's famed Del Monaco's Restaurant for more than twenty years, he and his wife, Vittoria, moved to Madison, Connecticut, where he continues to serve his beloved Mediterranean classics at Café Allegre and three other restaurants: The Woodwinds, in Branford; Chef Silvio's, in Guilford; and Allegre Gourmet Express, in Madison.

Anthony V. Riccio is Stacks Manager at the Sterling Memorial Library at Yale University. He is the author of The Italian American Experience in New Haven: Images and Oral Histories, also published by SUNY Press, and Boston's North End: Images and Recollections of an Italian-American Neighborhood.
