Ron Brown, chef/owner
Since 1984, Ron has founded and operated seven restaurants and food-related businesses but he considers Barboncino the culmination of everything he loves about hospitality and the restaurant business. A pizza enthusiast his whole life, he spent six summers in Italy before apprenticing in the art of Neapolitan pizza-making with the company from which he bought Barboncino's famous wood-burning oven. Ron imported the oven from the company, located outside of Naples, Italy, and the rest is history! Ron is also an award winning filmmaker, having written/produced/directed two independent feature films (A Perfect Fit and Consent).
