Faces OF 5TH Luca Di Falco savors sharing his Italian culinary roots with Neapolitans at his trio of 5th Avenue South restaurants


Luca Di Falco zips along 5th Avenue South on his Vespa—the most efficient way to manage three bustling restaurants that are sating appetites in the heart of Naples’ historic district. Diners are drawn to BiCE Ristorante, Caffè Milano, and La Trattoria for genuine Italian dishes and festivity, an ambience that Di Falco hopes transports guests to his native Italy. “I bring the authenticity that only someone who comes from Italy can share,” says Di Falco, managing partner of these popular eateries. “Plus, my three concepts are so different that they can cover any clientele—from fine dining to smart casual to real rustic.” Whether diners indulge in veal osso buco at BiCE Ristorante, pappardelle short ribs at Caffè Milano, or pizza norma and tableside tiramisu at La Trattoria, they enjoy the finest ingredients served with passion and knowledge by a well-trained staff. “What excites me the most about this business is seeing how people enjoy what we do for them,” says Di Falco. So why did he choose 5th Avenue South for three venues? “When you leave a beautiful country like Italy, you can only go to the best places,” Di Falco says. “When I moved to Naples, I only wanted to do business on the most beautiful street—the famous 5th Avenue South. Always the best of the best for me.” 18 5TH AVENUE SOUTH

“WHEN I MOVED TO NAPLES, I ONLY WANTED TO DO BUSINESS ON THE MOST BEAUTIFUL STREET— THE FAMOUS 5TH AVENUE SOUTH.” —Luca Di Falco Born in the ancient port city of Catania, Sicily, Di Falco began his hospitality career at age 15, working at his brother’s restaurant in his hometown’s historic Centro Storico neighborhood while studying hotel management. The trajectory of the 39-year-old’s career reads like a passport: from the luxurious seaside Bagaglino Vacanze resort in Porto Cervo to the mountain ski resort Madonna di Campiglio in Italy to Grosvenor House London. While at the 5-star Grand Hotel Excelsior in Malta, Di Falco got a call from Walt Disney World executives in Orlando. This introduction to America was followed by a culinary immersion in the historic district of La Jolla, California, before taking to the seas with Princess Cruises. A pivotal change brought him back to land and ultimately to Naples: helping BiCE Group open new restaurants, followed by a promotion to corporate maitre d’hotel

(head waiter). In 2009, he arrived in Naples to run the elegant BiCE Ristorante. “Naples and especially downtown are a perfect fit for me and my family because I can still explore Miami and New York restaurants for new ideas, then come back to Naples, which is my home,” he says. His favorite days in Naples begin by dropping his child at school before heading to one of his restaurants to answer emails over a cup of expertly brewed espresso. “Then I go to my other restaurants to be sure the team members have all of the tools necessary for an amazing day,” he says. Checking in on his staff and his restaurants is a simple jaunt on his scooter under Naples’ cerulean skies. Though Di Falco is a co-owner of all three of the restaurants, “I also manage these places,” he says. “I am running the operations from A to Z.”
