Biography

Photo of Casa Visone

Francesco Visone was born and raised in Florence, Italy. He is one of four children of Cero and Amelia Visone. The family was part of many in post war Italy that experienced the poverty and circumstances that a devastating war can bring to a country. Each child was expected to obtain employment at a very young age to bring needed income to the family in order for them to survive. His first job was delivering fruits and vegetables for the local produce shop at the age of 6. That 10 cents a day was added to the family income. He continued to work throughout his youth while attending school. This led him to some of the most famous restaurants of Florence and training under many experienced chefs and his passion for food.

Throughout his teen years Italy adopted more and more socialistic government policies. He became very unhappy with corruption of the government and made the decision to come to the United States where he could choose his own path and future. He arrived in Washington, D.C. in 1976. Some of the names on his resume includes Gallilao, Primi Piati, Vincinzos, and La Tomate.

Years of training and experience in many kitchens and dining rooms has brought him to where he is today. He is proud to be in the kitchen of Casa Visone Italian Bistro and strongly belives that the best food is what he calls peasant food. Simple and uncomplicated made with the best and freshest ingredients that are available to him.

The recipe book was written 2000 years ago by the Etruscans. I simply follow their wisdom.
