Gianni's Café recently named Patrick Rowan as the new manager of its Kildeer location. In his new position, Rowan will be responsible for overseeing all facets of the Kildeer restaurant and upholding the high-quality culinary and service standards that the family-owned restaurant strives for.

Rowan joins the team with more than 18-years of experience in restaurant management, most recently serving as the general manager at Pl8 Restaurant in Barrington. Prior to that, Rowan worked at several large restaurant groups including Lettuce Entertain You, Darden Restaurants, Brinker International Restaurants and more.

"We are thrilled to have Patrick take the reins at Gianni's Café Kildeer," said Mike Siena, co-owner. "With his vast experience and excitement for what he does, we are confident that he will continue to strengthen our mission of bringing fresh and authentic Italian dishes to our customers in a relaxed and welcoming environment."

"Gianni's Café is family owned and operated. For the past decade, we have brought our family recipes to members of our communities to enjoy, just as our families have enjoyed for generations," said Crissy Siena, co-owner. "Patrick is the perfect addition because he understands the pride we take in serving delicious food and the importance of treating our employees and customers like family."

Best known for serving some of the freshest seafood, pasta and other Italian dishes from all parts Italy, the Gianni's Cafe menu highlights traditional Italian dishes with bold and creative flavors. Customer favorites include the Country Rigatoni and the restaurant's made-from-scratch Suprema sauce, a combination of marinara and alfredo.

"I'm ready to solidify Gianni's Cafe as the best happy hour, lunch and dinner location offering the highest quality food in a family-friendly atmosphere. This marks an exciting new journey for me, and I'm so happy to join the team," said Rowan.
