Destingo, which means destined to go, is the idea of owner Monika Vacca, who opened a contemporary and casual Italian restaurant where people can enjoy delicious food and wine at a moderate price. Monika is the former co-owner of Vaticano Restaurant in Yorkville where her and executive chef Felice Vacca have been cooking up some of the best Italian food in town for the past decade. Monika brought along Vaticano’s former sous-chef Arshad Uwais who has been working as an apprentice for Felice since 2005. Monika and Arshad have brought some of their favorite dishes from Vaticano over to Destingo and given them a contemporary spin. You can enjoy a diverse selection of appetizers, salads, pastas, pizzas, meats, seafood and desserts. Destingo also offers an extensive Wellness section for those who wish to start the day with a light and healthy meal.
