Recently, we just opened up our new modern Italian restaurant, Marzano. We embarked on a trip to Naples, Italy in 2017. We enrolled in a one week course from one of the most revered, legendary pizzaiolas, Enzo Coccia, to understand the tradition and methods behind preparing the dough and working the forno. The course was rewarding and eye opening as we learned a century-old hand stretching dough techniques and simple authentic recipes. In addition to these well-guarded methods, we discovered the beauty of pure, fresh ingredients. The San Marzano tomato is a cornerstone ingredient that the locals take pride in as it is native only to the rich volcanic soil of the area. We were inspired by this and felt we needed to take the same care in selecting our ingredients, hence the name, Marzano as an homage to quality and authenticity.
We welcome you to come check out Nelson’s new restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week.

Have you ever had one of those moments when you think, “Whoa now, wait a sec, this is an amazing story!”? Yeah. Me too. In fact, I have them everyday. Always have. And I’ve always felt the need to share them, which is why I went to journalism school, specialized in magazines and then expanded my career to include digital media, marketing and content creation. For over two decades I’ve worked in every facet of the communications industry and in that time I’ve come to appreciate there are fascinating tales in everything we do. Although I tend to be drawn to the more adventurous side of life, whether it’s rock climbing in Oman or BASE jumping in Idaho, I also realize that good story telling transforms everything from press releases and advertising campaigns to website content and social media posts. There’s a reason my company is called Wonow, aka “Whoa now!” So what’s your story?
