Passion, Persistence, and Pasta!
Born in the Marche region of Italy’s Adriatic coast, Chef Fabio Trabocchi and his Spanish wife and business partner, Maria Font Trabocchi, are widely celebrated among Washington DC’s, and the nation’s, leading restaurateurs.
Since they first met (in a Washington, D.C. restaurant, of course) in the mid '90s – Maria as a student of international relations and Fabio as a chef – the Trabocchis have passionately pursued the goal of creating a world class hospitality organization offering the finest dining experiences in the world. The Trabocchis design restaurants as an extension of their lifestyle, creating spaces that they would like to visit.
The Trabocchis’ growing restaurant group has brought them many accolades, yet their inspiration remains grounded in family traditions from Italy, Spain, and the U.S. From the Michelin starred fine dining flagship, Fiola, to the neighborhood pasta house, Sfoglina, the Trabocchis’ signature remains their uncompromising commitment to quality and making every guest feel special upon every visit.
