FRANK TAMMARO – OWNER/CHEF
You don’t grow up in the Italian section of Paterson, New Jersey without knowing your way around a kitchen. Chef Frank Tammaro took the lessons he learned from his mother and grandmother and turned it into a 30-year passion in food. In that time, Frank has had the opportunity to eat in some of the country’s best restaurants and study alongside some of its best chefs. He drew from all those culinary experiences and opened Frank’s Cucina in Harwichport, a supper club that he ran out of his home. After years of cooking for 10-20 people per night, Frank decided it was time to bring his unique take on fine dining to a larger audience. In Certo’s, Frank has created a place where unique ingredients and avant-garde cooking techniques combine to bring Cape Cod its new home for modern Italian cuisine. Not bad for a kid from Paterson.
