Paolo Siciliano was born in Reggio di Calabria, Italy in 1944 and was introduced to traditional southern Italian cuisine by his mother, Maria. When he was 13, Paolo and his family moved to Detroit, Michigan. Growing up with a mother who not only had a gift for cooking but a passion for sharing it, Paolo learned from an early age the value of family, good friends and great food. This was the foundation in which Siciliano’s A Taste of Italy was born.
Paolo moved his family to Texas to pursue his dream and in 1981 opened his first restaurant. After 21 years in their original location Paolo and his wife Fran decided it was time to create a restaurant that match his passion for great food. They wanted to make Siciliano’s not just a place to eat great Italian food, but a destination which brings a touch of Italy to everyone who visits.
