The WoodWinds of Branford was acquired by The Suppa Family in January 2007. Chef Silvio Suppa and his wife, Vittoria, honed their blend of family-style service with the best of old world tastes at Del Monaco’s, on famous Wooster Street, the Little Italy of New Haven. This is where Chef Silvio’s of Wooster Street Italian Sauces began as well as a long tradition of offering their guest the highest level of service and exceptional cuisine.

Today, Antonio Suppa, son of Silvio and Vittoria, is the sole proprietor of WoodWinds: He previously managed WoodWinds for 12 years, and also worked side-by-side with his father since he was a child learning how to create the foods he loved. Silvio taught him how to cook and eventually to run a business. With his dedication and passion to keep his father’s recipes and legacy at the forefront on WoodWinds menu choices, Antonio continues to maintain the standards and techniques that his father taught him.

With the accumulated experience of working in the family business, Antonio knows what it takes to keep their guests coming back. With their award-winning cuisine and service, having an event at WoodWinds is truly an inspirational dining experience which has lured customers from all around New England. This culinary experience is now Woodwinds’ standard.

For many years now, Antonio Suppa and his highly trained, dedicated staff has made many brides' dreams come true; from their magnificent European country manor setting, beautiful gardens, to their bountiful, delicious cuisine that your guests will continue to speak about long after your event. Antonio knows it is the details that make an event special, and it’s done to perfection at WoodWinds for all your occasions.
