Tony Zacconi

Tony Zacconi, owner of Sala San Marco Banquet & Conference Centre has spent nearly 25 years in the food service industry. Beginning as a busboy working for his parents Joe & Gina Zacconi who built and opened Sala San Marco in 1987, he worked his way up the “front-of-the-house”.

In 2001 Tony set out on his own and opened La Vecchia Trattoria on Preston St.  He built the business from the ground up on the principles of serving traditional Italian cuisine using the best available ingredients in a friendly neighbourhood atmosphere.  It was a winning combination, making it one of Ottawa’s favourite Italian restaurants.
