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).

Our Staff

The Barboncino family is made up of a wonderful group of people who understand that our most important mission is to take care of our guests -- to treat every visit like it's the first and to make everyone feel at home.

They're actors, singers, musicians, fine artists, writers of poetry, prose and more ... We love working together!
