Local Food Pantry

The Laguna Food Pantry recently accepted a $5,000 donation from Chef Alessandro Pirozzi, the owner of Alessa, Salerno, and Pirozzi restaurants. Pantry Executive Director Anne Belyea said the donation arrived at a critical time due to the influx of food insecurity created by COVID-19.

Born in Naples, Italy, Chef Pirozzi was the youngest of four children and the only boy who grew up in a house full of girls, a constant challenge. Fortunately for him, whenever the girls were picking on little Alessandro, his grandmother, Nonna Ida, would rescue him and take him into the safety of her kitchen to help prepare dinner.

"Absolutely delicious food! Everything is so fresh and authentic. Great wine, too. Service is outstanding and we love the new outdoor seating. By far our favorite restaurant in Laguna Beach! We'll be back again and again."
