Vesuvio chef dies

Posted By on Tue, Aug 4, 2009 at 4:15 PM

Rosario Patti, the Italian chef at the helm of the popular Vesuvio Bistro in the Best Western Governor's Inn in western Little Rock, died Monday as a result of a stroke suffered over the weekend, his friends say. He was 53. A family gathering is scheduled at 6 p.m. Thursday at Roller-Chenal Funeral Home with a rosary to be said at 7. Funeral will be at 10 a.m. Friday at Christ the King Catholic Church.

Patti had operated restaurants from coast to coast. He started the Belle Arti restaurant in Hot Springs, among other Arkansas ventures. Vesuvio had built a loyal following and won critical acclaim in its first year. It is expected to continue in operation with its Patti-trained staff.
