Spotlight on ... Tony Gemignani '77

Photo of Tony GemignaniTony Gemignani grew up surrounded by the taste and aroma of traditional Northern Italian cuisine. His father Rudy, well-known local restauranteur, established Gemignani’s Restaurant in 1982. Tony and his wife Rose ran the restaurant until 2014 when the next generation, Paul and his wife Emily, took the reins.

Now Tony and Rose create, package and sell Rudy's Traditional Seasonings so you can enjoy the distinctive taste of Gemignani's sauce and soup at any time at home. The products are available locally and in many UP stores and online at
