Village of the Arts has welcomed a taste of Italy.. Remo and Meridith Mambelli opened Arte Caffe to offer true Italian flavors and a place to relax to the Village of the Arts. "I'm trying to bring the real deal," Remo Mambelli said. "A simple taste of Italy."
He arrived in the United States in 1990 after years of watching his mother cook in Italy. Her techniques and recipes stuck with him through 15 years of restaurant management in Manhattan, where he met Meridith when he hired her as a bartender.
