Da Bianca Trattoria was a dream come true for Bianca Cangelosi Bavand. After opening one of the first Italian restaurants in Irvine, Bianca and husband Artie seized the opportunity to open Da Bianca close to their East Orange home in 1990.
While Artie managed the business end of the restaurant, Bianca developed the menu. Her inspiration was the food from her hometown of San Giuseppe Jato, Sicily -- simple food using only the freshest ingredients (the same food she cooked for her family).
Over the course of 25 years, Da Bianca Trattoria has earned a reputation as a beloved local restaurant serving authentic Italian cuisine. Word spread quickly about the delicious pasta, homemade specialties and warm hospitality.
Daughter Marjan Bavand Dunn, an Orange native, and her family are now continuing the family legacy of welcoming our neighbors as they celebrate milestones, meet friends and share family dinners. Da Bianca’s philosophy remains the same: treat all customers as though they were guests in our home.
Ci Vediamo (See you soon)!
