Ristorante Carpaccio opened for business in Menlo Park, California, in 1988. After a highly successful career with Budget Rental Car, this was the first of many restaurants opened by Aaron Ferer, including Capellini, Buffalo Grille, Joanne’s, and Barley & Hopps in San Mateo and Tuscany, L’Avenue, Franck’s and Emelia’s in Salt Lake City. Aaron chose Ciya Martorana to manage and welcome the community to Carpaccio and in return the community has embraced Ciya. Executive management was provided by Robert Colombo, and executive management is now being provided by Sandra Ferer. Many of our loyal and professional staff have been with us since the beginning and some staff have worked at all of our California locations, including our talented Chef, Chay Mendez, for over 18 years.
