The Chef

Anthony J Camilleri

My career in the food and beverage business has given me the experience to perform at an expert level in any environment. Having started early on in this business I quickly realized the importance of a very good work ethic and whatever it takes to get the job done attitude. Earlier in my career, I was fortunate enough to work side by side with several great local chefs. I have been a part of multiple restaurant openings including my own French American bistro-Simsbury, Grants in West Hartford, Rizzutos-Stamford and several consulting contract openings throughout Hartford and Fairfield counties. Being a part of several ala carte style restaurants, hotel, and private club settings, there is no situation I am not comfortable in. I take pride in training my brigade of cooks on a daily basis so they will perform to their best ability and ensuring delivery of the highest standards of food.

Stretch’s passion for food in grounded in his 20 year friendship with Chef Tony. Over that time both knew they wanted to open a restaurant together and Toro Loco was perfect opportunity to make that dream a reality. Stretch’s background as a business owner and artist was instrumental in the physical transformation of Toro Loco into a warm, inviting experience where guests feel like they are family. When he isn’t building custom art pieces for the dining room, Stretch can be found underwater exploring the seventy percent of the Earth’s surface that is unknown to most. He lives in Florida with his wife, and Japanese Chin.
