Anothony’s Famous Pesto,
Husband and wife, Costanzo and Titina Vuotto started up Capri Flavors 24 years ago and have been in their current Cary location since 2017. The two have lived extraordinary lives, spending the better part of them together and on the island of Capri, a 30-minute boat ride from Napoli, Italy. It was there that both Costanzo and Titina’s families played a major role in defining Caprisian hospitality.
Costanzo’s father, Raffaele, was the first coffee shop owner in the 1930’s to offer his guests outside seating in the famous Piazzetta of Capri, starting a trend that spread to Rome, Venice, Florence and beyond. On Titina’s side of the family, it was her mother, Margherita, who invented the La Caprese salad in her restaurant, “Trattoria Da Vincenzo.” As the family tells it, the salad, now on menus around the world, was originally created so that ladies could “have a nice lunch while still fitting into their bikinis.”
Eventually going into their own hospitality business, Costanzo and Titina opened La Pineta, a small hotel on Capri. Titina went on to publish two original cookbooks and Costanzo’s photography was on exhibit in Rome and Capri. The two came to the U.S. by invitation from restauranteurs and made their home in Rhode Island for a few years before venturing south for a warmer climate.
