Leo Ulaj started his career by completing Hospitality and Culinary school in Montenegro. Once he arrived in the United States in 1985, he began working as a bus boy in many busy restaurants in Manhattan. After many years of working in New York City and exposing himself to varieties of people and different restaurant businesses, he decided it was time to opened up his first restaurant in Larchmont called La Villetta in 1996. In 2002, Leo opened up Benevento in Lynbrook after years later sold both restaurants and began working in Per Un Angelo in Wantagh and later on moved to Villa De Aqua in Belmore, where Tom and Leo reunited and the partnership began.
Tom Dushaj arrived alone to the United States at the age of 16 in 1970, started his working career as a dishwasher and eventually became a pizza man. From learning all the steps from the bottom to the top, Tom became the major D of many fine Italians restaurants all over New York. Tom alone has over 30 years of experience of holding the position of Maitre D’. Tom Dushaj has worked in Primavera in Flushing, Queens and Cafe Picasso in Williston Park, Long Island just to name a few.
