Edmonton, be introduced to Al Centro: a soon-to-open Restaurant in the heart of Edmonton, crafted to redefine the city’s culinary centre.
My name is Antonio Bilotta, and I am the maestro of this project. Like the previous cafes and restaurants I’ve opened in Edmonton (Leva, Rosso, Da Capo), this concept will push Edmonton’s culinary scene to new heights. The difference this time is that Al Centro is pushing even further.
Not only will the restaurant open Edmonton’s hotel and arts district to an extraordinary culinary experience, it will also introduce the city to Italy’s modern casual food and aperetivo culture.
The perfect end to your work day. Opening up the rest of your evening for time with family and friends.
This is modern Italy at its best. THINK: Roman style pizza, sophisticated aperitivo with complementary bites, exceptional ingredients, elegant and casual atmosphere, where you will find infinite reasons to meet up.
Franco Imbrogno, founder of Mangia Mangia, will bring his experience and his charming personality to our leadership team. Many years of working in the industry and him being a part of the family make Franco a natural fit at Al Centro.
Al Centro is now at our final step before opening its doors. This means it’s time for our community to get a sneak peak and have the opportunity to participate in what’s to come. This kickstarter campaign is the invitation to be involved in unveiling this new food culture within the centre of a city we all love.
Edmonton, get ready for something you’ve never experienced before.
Looking forward to taking this last step together,
Risks and challenges
This project has been full of unexpected surprises, unforeseen circumstances, and being full on blindsided along the way. Years of being in the food service industry and being involved in designing and opening multiple concepts for clients and myself has provided me with the ability to negotiate through the adversity and challenges in order to get the projects to the finish line and to thrive afterwards.
The funds raised through this kickstarter will be exactly that, the kickstart that this restaurant needs to open its doors and start creating the community meeting spot that our downtown needs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
