Arriving in the United States in 1967, Mr. Giuseppe Martuscelli began working in Philadelphia as a cook. Over the next several years a common vision began to grow of one day opening his own restaurant. In 1978 he came to Newark, Delaware and opened La Casa Pasta. The business quickly became a lifestyle of seven-day workweeks; fine-tuning culinary skills and providing customers with what they wanted. The hard work and diligence paid off several years later in 1996 when he and his son, Gianmarco opened a second restaurant, the Chesapeake Inn.
In 2016, Gianmarco & Gilda Martuscelli acquired the famous Klondike Kate's Restaurant & Saloon in Newark, Delaware to add the growing restaurant group's portfolio.
