Bringing Northern Italy to Millburn, NJ

La Pergola’s Chefs and Owners, Agron and Driola Kaloshi

Fine dining is a labor of love and passion that drives us both. As the husband-and-wife team behind La Pergola, we wanted to create a warm, welcoming place where people would feel instantly at home while enjoying wonderful food in the company of friends. When we opened our eatery in 2010, it was with the intention to showcase our appreciation for the authentic cuisine and customs of northern Italy. We crossed paths while attending college and quickly bonded over the mutual love of fabulous food and travel. Our shared passions eventually led us to New York, the altar and to the opening of our beloved La Pergola.

We both continuously expand our culinary skills, attending some of the most acclaimed culinary programs in Italy and Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. Taking annual tasting trips to Italy to visit family and friends also keeps us connected to our inspiration to bring the freshest of flavors, ingredients and artisanal approaches back to La Pergola’s plates- and to your table.
