Franchise Sales & Development
Virgola is a unique Italian wine bar concept founded in New York City. Twenty years of restaurant industry experience led founder, Joseph Marazzo, to create a distinct business model that has gained national and international media attention.
In 2013 Joseph exposed and personally restored an 1800’s alley in the heart of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. Inside this narrow passageway, with a greater vision in mind, he opened the first Virgola location.
Fresh, raw oysters, ceviche, crudo, and caviar accompany selections of imported Italian cheeses, salumi and salads. Virgola's entire menu is meticulously prepared in a heat-free kitchen. Virgola features an exclusively Italian wine list that is highlighted by The Virgola Collection.
Initially one of New York City's best kept secrets, Virgola's massive success has led Mr. Marazzo to expand business operations by offering franchises throughout the United States.
