O’Sarracino means “the Saracen” referring to a handsome young man of dark eyes and complexion, which women found irresistible, taken from a 1958 popular Neapolitan song by singer Renato Carosone. But Salvatore and Giuseppina’s love was so strong that they eloped to Belgium where they stayed for a grand total of 3 days. On their return Giovanni was in shock, and made them marry within the month, but on one condition that Salvatore gave up being a policeman and worked for him as waiter. In 1971, Chef Gaetano was born and softened Giovanni’s heart so much that Giovanni handed his restaurant over to Salvatore. Salvatore went on to open three more restaurants in Milan – Canzuncella, Tarante and Liu.
