Annibale Todesca has won countless awards, but one in particular that he is very proud of is Best Italian Chef and Restaurant in the World – given by the Guardians of the Nine Doors.  This prestigious award has never been won by any other restaurant in the United States.  In fact, the year that Annibale was flown to Rome to receive the award, the second place restaurant was from Bologna, Italy and the third place restaurant was from Venice, Italy.
