We are Erica and Ariel. Owners for more than 2 years of the fabulous The Italian Joint.
We are Argentines. We come from Patagonia Argentina. From a relatively small town on the coast of the province of Chubut called Playa Unión.
We are a couple with more than 25 years together and 2 beautiful children.
We grew up, like most Argentines, surrounded by Italian culture. There is a reason why they say
that "Argentines are Italians who speak Spanish".
To tell the truth, our culture is formed by the migratory currents of the 1900's that mostly brought Italian and Spanish immigrants to the area. But undoubtedly, it is in the food culture where all Argentines are Italian. For us, it is the everyday food, the food we grew up with, the flavors we acquired since we were little.... We grew up with Nonna's noodles, mamma's lasagna and Sunday ravioli with the family. We love a table full of food, bread, family and friends. At an Argentine table there is always enough room for one more and the door is always open for the newcomer.
A little over two years ago we arrived in Central Florida and automatically fell in love with downtown Kissimmee...it had so much of our place in Argentina!
We fell in love so much that after touring 32 businesses, we stayed and started operating The Italian Joint, putting all our love into it every single day.
