He oversees Bufalina Due’s Burnet Road outpost, curates their extensive wine list, and is also an accomplished woodworker with pieces on display both at Bufalina Due and his home.
Steven Dilley excitedly holds out a handful of what appear to be dusty tan rocks. “These just arrived,” he tells us with enthusiasm, “they left Piedmont just two days ago!” These dusty-brown gems are aromatic white truffles which diners at Bufalina Neapolitan Pizzeria can order up to six grams shaved onto their pizzas.
Restaurant industry challenges such as labor and supply issues have proven challenging for Dilley and his team, yet they continue to prosper despite this hurdle. Dilley enjoys snow skiing, traveling and spending time with his granddaughter.
