Steve Goda, Chef/Owner

Steve Goda, Chef/Owner of Arpino Trattoria, knew at a young age he would one day open his own restaurant. Steve’s culinary aptitude was influenced at an early age while helping to cook for his family. Prior to opening Arpino Trattoria, Steve was on the team that opened Il Mercato and Cioppino, located in the Strip District. Most recently, Steve was Operations Manager for the PIPA Group, LLC comprised of Bistecca Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Café Amante and the Clark Bar & Grill. The dream of opening his own restaurant took form and in June 2011 the doors of Arpino Trattoria opened.
