Stefani Restaurant Group Employee Relief Fund

Dear Friends, Family, & Loyal Customers,

The Stefani Restaurant Group believes that family, food and tradition are what hold us together. Our incredible customers and each and every one of our hardworking employees are all part of the Stefani Family. We never would have imagined we would be in the position we are today. Covid 19 has taken us all by surprise and has left us feeling stunned and defeated.  As we fully support the decisions our leaders have mandated for the State and City, it has also left us in an unimaginable position. We hoped this would have been a short shutdown as originally suggested. Unfortunately, we now realize that the timetable is unknown. We don't know when we'll be able to open our doors again, we don’t know when we'll see relief from the government, and we don’t know how much assistance we'll receive. 

Our priority right now is the well being of our employees and their families that are currently without income. While we are doing everything in our power to provide for our team and also ensure that they have a job to come back to, we would greatly appreciate your help in providing financial support and stability to our amazing employees through this incredibly difficult time. We hope you consider making a donation if you are able.  There is no contribution that is too small, and every dollar truly counts.  

 We look forward to being able to welcome you back into our restaurants in the future and thank each and every one of you for your support over the past 40 years and your continued support during this time of crisis.

With the utmost gratitude,

Phil, Karen, Gina & Anthony Stefani
and our dedicated management team
