Garage Buona Forchetta Opens And Pitches In To Do Its Part During The Virus Outbreak

It’s not the best time when the opening of your restaurant coincides with a virus outbreak, but Matteo Cattaneo is still offering an opportunity for customers to try his food.Last Friday, March 20, Cattaneo was wearing an apron and with a smile on his face, was running from the kitchen to a table set up at the front of the restaurant, helping his employees fill the orders customers were calling in for pick up. The eatery was open only for a couple of days before Governor Gavin Newsom ordered restaurants to only be open for take out orders.Cattaneo jumped at the opportunity to provide take out and his customers were happy to have a chance to order and try Buona Forchetta’s dishes of pastas and pizzas to feed their families.This is Cattaneo’s fourth Buona Forchetta restaurant. The other locations are in South Park, Liberty Station and Encinitas. Cattaneo came to San Diego from Bergamo, Italy in 2006 to earn a Master’s degree in Business Law. But his plans changed somewhat when he met and later married his now wife Alexa.
