My name is Vincenzo Porcu as my grandfather, Vincenzo Porcu, who owned two restaurants in Sardinia. I come from Sinnai, a small town in the mountains of Cagliari. I've been working in the restaurant business since I was 14.
The idea of visiting America first came to me when I was 22. Since then, I have been back and forth to NY many times until I decided to stay in LA, where I was able to have many work experiences. It was during a vacation in 2005 to Los Angeles, that ultimately persuaded me to make this my new home. I love Los Angeles and, in some ways, it reminds me of Sardinia. After working for a large family of restaurateurs, the Drago family, 4Sicilian brothers who have many places in this town, I decided to open my Carasau Sardinian Restaurant in Culver City.
