Our Story

Aldo Lamberti’s Family of Restaurants

In 1963, 13-year-old Aldo Lamberti arrived in the United States with his family from Naples, Italy. His father, Giuseppe, opened a pizzeria in Brooklyn, New York where young Aldo developed a passion for hospitality. Throughout his twenties he gained experience cooking his native southern Italian cuisine as well as operating restaurants. Aldo then returned to Italy where he then mastered northern Italian cuisine and learned the intricacies of the seafood industry.

Upon his return to the United States, Aldo opened his first Ristorante Lamberti on Brace Road in Cherry Hill, New Jersey in 1985 (now known as Lamberti’s Tutti Toscani). The restaurant quickly became a local favorite and Aldo and his wife Carmela opened a second restaurant, Caffe Aldo Lamberti. Hard work and dedication led to both growth and success, and over the last three decades, they opened several other restaurants, ensuring that each location delivered cuisine, atmosphere, value, and service at the highest standards of excellence.
