Salvatore Biundo is the owner of Italian eatery Centro Trattoria & Bar, the ultimate farm-to-fork Italian restau-rant in Hampton Bays. The storied road to the making of his beloved business comes from a rich background at home. His grandmother lovingly passed on the secrets of the kitchen to him, and he proudly took that loving advice on his own journey to become a self-taught chef. His elevated style has cre-ated a fresh take on old world tastes at Centro Trattoria & Bar. Incredible food has become a family affair with his wife helping manage the restaurant and his mom assisting at the stove.
Together they are poised to launch a new era of growth as they get ready to expand operations. Re-illuminating the outdoor eating experience this summer is the grand patio deck in time for an exceptional season. Surrounding the lively setting will be an exquisite outdoor garden fountain and fireplace, full bar, live music, and two Bocce courts. Enchanting moments at the table are to be found in this 100-seat outdoor mezzanine in the heart of Hampton Bays.
Known for a stellar reputation in the community and popular video cooking segments, Biundo, and his restaurant has become the stuff of legend for foodies who flock to eat at this landmark venue. They admire the style here as equally as they have at his other well-known restaurant ventures in Long Island.
