Chef Marco

Marco’s passion for food came from a lifetime of eating at the tables of his mother and grandmother. He went on to work as a cook at several notable Portland area restaurants before moving on to Florence, Italy to study and work; there, he received a Master’s in Culinary Arts at Apicius International School of Hospitality. He then spent several months traveling, living and cooking with his family in Tuscany, Umbria and Calabria, and working in restaurants in Tuscany and Sicily. When he returned home he opened Gilda’s.

Grandma Gilda
Gilda took great pleasure in feeding her family, friends and neighbours. Her cooking was legendary, homemade pastas, pizzas, braciole, meatballs, soups and her desserts. For Grandma Gilda, food was love, and she filled many lives with her wonderful cooking. After her passing in 2008, Marco decided to honor her memory by naming the restaurant after her.
