Clean Bay Restaurant Certified
In 2008, we launched the Clean Bay Restaurant Certification Program (aka Clean Bay Certified) to recognize restaurants that integrate sustainability and ocean-mindedness into their business practices.

We accomplish our goals through rigorous inspections, collaboration with local cities, and direct outreach to the public.

Angelo & Franco Ricotta Cheese
Import the Cheese Makers, not the Cheese!At the origin lies a simple observation: to have the freshest quality of cheese, one should not import the cheese, but the cheese makers.Based on this insight, Angelo Tartaglia and Franco Russo decided to cross the Atlantic from Bagnoli Irpino, in the South of Italy, to establish themselves in Los Angeles. Their objective was simple: produce Italian cheeses to the highest standards using solely local and fully natural products. They follow the original centenary old Bagnoli Irpino recipe – further developed and mastered over three generations by Franco's family business – but produce everything from their Los Angeles based factory.
