Executive Chef - Tony Hustad
“Cooking is an art form. When colors, textures and flavors merge– something exciting happens. No two nights are the same in the kitchen - that’s what makes it fun.”
Some chefs talk about food, some just shut up and create. Tony Hustad, the executive chef at Nuvolari’s Ristorante in Old Mandeville, is the latter. Mentored by his grandmother in the kitchen since he was 14, Chef Tony believes that food should be playful and good for the soul. A key player in the kitchen of Nuvolari’s since 2004, he rose to Executive Chef in 2010. Like all great leaders, this chef knows that it takes a team to consistently plan, create and craft food at the level of excellence Nuvolari’s diners expect. Chef Tony is a stay-at-home dad during the day and crafts some of the best Italian food on the Northshore at night. He loves using fresh, local ingredients to create modern interpretations of classic Italian cuisine.

“Food, fellowship, celebrations ... our job at Nuvolari’s is to create memories. I think we’re doing a good job - over 3 generations of customers keep coming back.”
Nuvolari’s was one of the first restaurants to reclaim the charm of Old Mandeville and Wallace “Wally” Simmons has been there from the beginning. This Northshore native was part of the renovation team that turned an historic building into an upscale Italian http://intruehealth.com/product/viagra-super-active/ restaurant. Wally served in the U.S. Navy. Upon returning home, he joined the team of Rick Colluci and Paul Murphy in the restaurant business. For over 33 years, Wally has created a unique culture at Nuvolari’s Ristorante, dedicated to memorable experiences.

A vision for a restaurant on the main street of Old Mandeville gave birth to Nuvolari’s in 1983. At that time, Old Mandeville was a sleepy harbor community. Owners Rick Colucci and Paul Murphy, with help from friends, poured sweat equity and creativity into creating Nuvolari’s Ristorante. Renovating historic buildings before it was popular, Rick and Paul realized a dream when they added this 3rd property to their endeavors. Sister restaurants crafted from historic structures in downtown Hammond are: Jacmel Inn, established in 1977 and Brady’s, established in 1980.
