Carlo

Frank and Gina’s youngest son, Carlo Giambattista, currently oversees the daily operations at Italian Star. For more than 30 years, Carlo worked side-by-side with his mother, learning the ins and outs of running a business and taking customer service to an entirely new level. Known for his infectious smile, curly locks and gift of the gab, Carlo genuinely cares about his customers… and it shows! Though the spunky businessman has become a fixture in the popular deli, he wasn’t always focused on taking over the family business. As a young boy, Carlo had visions of becoming a professional musician and touring with his band. At 19, Carlo traded his drumsticks for the pepperoni variety and strapped on an apron that would seldom leave his neck over the next 30 years.  Today Carlo proudly carries forward the Giambattista tradition of providing excellent product and exceptional customer service. He continues to work alongside his mother Gina, as well as his daughter Marina. In November 2012, Carlo became part owner of Fortuna Ristorante Italiano, an authentic Italian Restaurant in East Regina.
