Ilda is the artisan passion project of husband & wife team, Michelin-trained Chef Santiago Guzzetti, and Sommelier Crystal Pace. Nestled in the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina, the pair felt called to build a home that is rich in culture, craft and community. Santiago’s heritage in Italian cuisine and Crystal’s ties to her hometown of Appalachia create a cuisine that is unique, but also honors and respects history. This union of Italian and Southern Appalachian cuisine is the foundation where they will recreate the comfort you found at your grandmother’s kitchen table.
