Formoli’s Bistro is more than a neighborhood eatery. It is a passion and a dream realized. Orchestrating the taste and feel of
the intimate Bistro are Aimal Formoli and his wife Suzanne Ricci. Aimal is the confident king of the kitchen while Suzanne maintains the ambience for loyal customers and makes certain the entire staff shares the same vision of excellence in both food and service.
Classicly trained in French Cooking at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco, Aimal began his love of cooking at his grandfather’s side–a man known and loved for his cooking prowess. Now an accomplished chef himself, Aimal expresses a creative flair for blending and interpreting the delicious cuisines of Southern Europe. He and Suzanne seek out local, seasonal, fresh foods to create original specials and favorites on the menu. The approach has quickly won avid fans and positive reviews from local food critics.
