Our story begins in Montreal, Quebec. Owner Jean-Claude was
raised on traditional Italian recipes, passed down through his
mother's side of the family. Carmella was born in the Campo
Basso region and settled in Little Italy with her 11 siblings.
She got up at dawn, putting in hours of work to create a Sunday
dinner spread for her often 2030 relatives and friends.
Jean-Claude inherited her passion for quality Italian comfort
food and entertaining guests.
Given the nickname Chichino by his best friend Mario, it seemed
a perfect combination to open a restaurant by that name in both
of their memories.
