about us

Felina features hospitality focused professionals showcasing locally-grown and foraged cuisine with authentic & vibrant italian influences. Frank Cretella and Chef Anthony Bucco developed the Felina brand to offer a refreshingly unique Italian restaurant experience. 


True supporters of the family farmer, artisans and craftsmen we take pride in our approach to community and sustainability. Our food and beverage programming will both rely heavily on the seasonal harvest to showcase each articulated and perfectly in-season ingredient. 


Award winning restaurant and event space design, playing on the architectural elements of the spaces and materials will serve as the perfect backdrop for any occasion.
