Salvatore Scarlata, is the chef/owner of cozy and intimate Vidalia Cucina con Passione. Salvatore was born in Villalba, a town in Sicily, and was raised in the city of Alassio, Liguria in Northern Italy.

At a young age, Salvatore took an interest in cooking, a famous Italian tradition. After gaining experience and knowledge involving the preparation of Italian cuisine, Sal moved to the U.S. with hopes to expound upon his cooking skills.

Shortly after moving to the United States, Sal began working toward the perfection of recipes he had created and learned. He apprenticed in local five star restaurants.

After many years of training in the culinary field, along with dedication and talent, Salvatore was ready for a restaurant of his own. Vidalia’s quaint atmosphere and tasty Italian cuisine is fueled by Salvatore motto: Cucina Con Passione.

Salvatore truly has a passion for the art of cooking and creating the perfect dining experience for his guests. His main goal is to satisfy every guest in light of the trio motto…… perfect atmosphere, food and service.

It has now been almost ten years since Chef Salvatore opened the intimate and popular Vidalia Restaurant. Salvatore attributes the overwhelming success of the restaurant to consistently good food, an ever changing menu full of both classic and inventive dishes, and a personal touch. Salvatore makes a point to visit every table he can and thank both his regulars and first time guests for joining him for dinner.

Vidalia couldn’t have done it without our loyal and generous customers, and we want to make sure you know we appreciate your patronage. Without you, we wouldn’t feel as inspired to provide a truly unique dining experience, each and every night.
