About Us

Welcome to the GP Italiano Family

The story began in 2005 when an entrepreneurial Joe Dellacroce walked into Paul’s Pizza in Westchester and began his storied restaurant career. Joe loved what he did so much, he trained, educated, went off to work at other restaurants, including Lettuce Entertain You, and honed his craft.

After years of experience, Chef Joe came back home to join restaurateur Paul Gattuso. With decades of experience managing and owning a restaurant, Paul loves his team that have become an extension of his family. As their relationship continued to forge, in October 2020 the two came together to partner a new modern Italian restaurant that became GP Italiano.

Bringing two families together with their Italian heritage, family values, and the love of cooking and entertaining, GP Italiano is a local Midwestern Italian flare with two talented minds in the front and back of the house.

We look forward to welcoming you to our family, GP Italiano.
