Tutti Gusti

A Story of Brothers

Guiseppe Merone was sixteen years old and already in the United States working on his culunary career when his brother Fortunato was born. At the age of ten, Fortunato also traveled to the USA, showing an interest in the businesses that Giuseppe and Antonio had begun. For the next six years he attended Fairfax Christian School graduating in 2006. Working on school by day and at Buon Appetito Chantilly by night, Fortunato's passion for the restaurant business was already clear.

Fortunato's journeys took him back to Italy where he continued his culinary training for three more years. In 2009 he returned to the United States. Mentored by his oldest brother Giuseppe and in partnership with his other brothers Antonio and Luciano, Fortunato purchased the Tutti Gusti restaurant in Harrisonburg, adding this store to their growing business.

Under Fortunato's leadership, Tutti Gusti has developed its reputation in the community for its fresh ingredients, friendly atmosphere, and great Italian cuisine. In addition, Tutti Gusti continues to be involved in the Harrisonburg and the JMU communities. Like his brothers, Fortunato feels strongly about giving back to his community.
