Talk: Patsy’s Italian Family Cookbook

Sal Scognamillo is the chef at Patsy's Italian Restaurant. Founded in 1944 by Pasquale “Patsy” Scognamillo, Patsy’s Italian Restaurant has been in its current and only NYC theater district location (in the building next to the original site) since 1954. In almost 70 years of existence, Patsy’s Italian Restaurant has had only three chefs; the late Patsy himself, his son Joe Scognamillo, who has been at the establishment since the tender age of seven, and Joe’s son Sal, who has been manning the kitchen for the past 29 years.
