About the Chef
Often known for his Sicilian roots, the path of success for Chef Ignazio Mulei leaving his native Sicilian home of Palermo to establish several Italian restaurants is the story of realizing his American Dream. Arriving in New York at age 18 with the treasures of Sicilian family recipes, Chef Ignazio worked his way up through hard work and determination.
Shortly after that, Ignazio found his niche by starting La Dolce Vita in Castle Pines followed by the opening of Odyssey Italian Restaurant in Denver. Not only is his luscious cuisine savored for special events and destination dining, but Chef Ignazio Mulei is also sought after as a restaurant consultant and a leader in Colorado's culinary community.
With his previous great success, Ignazio is now the proud chef and owner of Vista Vino Modern Grill in Castle Rock, Colorado. He offers the same quality dishes prepared with all fresh ingredients.
