History of Massa Coastal Italian Cuisine,
In 1982, shortly after relocating, executive chef Pasquale was described as "the most versatile fish cook in New York City" by Jay Jacobs, a restaurant reviewer for Gourmet Magazine. Again in 1993, Pasquale received acclaim from Gourmet Magazine for his expertise in preparing fish and lobster. Francesco's love for fish also grew with his father's, as he was running around Fulton Fish Market at the mere age of seven years old.
In 1998, Francesco took a front-of-the-house position at Ocean Grill in Manhattan, after his graduation from Pace University. Although Pasquale was retired at this time, he knew his son was passionate about pursuing a career in the food industry and decided to help him open his own restaurant. Francesco and Pasquale opened La Villetta in 2000, while Francesco continued taking classes at the French Culinary Institute in New York City. When La Villetta became too small to contain the growing crowds, Francesco decided to open Massa' restaurant in Scarsdale, NY.
