Who We Are

Luciana Basile-Lewis is the Chef and co-owner of Che Buono Inc. In 2017, Luciana and her husband Jesse, shortly after they moved from Florida, they decided to start the first Italian food truck, (Che Buono, LLC) in effort to get familiar with the area and industry in Sacramento, and before eventually open a restaurant. Born in Modena, Italy (a city North of Italy, known for Balsamic vinegar and the Ferrari car) her passion for cooking both savory and sweet items, with a particular interest in creating her own recipes, led her then to follow her dream to own a family-friendly Trattoria Pizzeria, Che Buono Trattoria Pizzeria, LLC.

Luciana is a self-taught chef, with a Master Certification in business and finance. For the last two years, Luciana has continued to refine her culinary skills by creating Italian contemporary savory and sweet dishes. She has also created the Che Buono Classic marinara pasta sauce, available for sale at Che Buono Trattoria Pizzeria, along with other savory gourmet sauces, (Bolognese, Arrabbiata and Piccante aioli).

Jesse Lewis is the Manager and co-owner of Che Buono. Jesse comes from the power plant industry, managing operations, maintenance and safety compliance. His desire to manage Che Buono with his wife, and also to leave the corporate world, was to offer the invaluable support and much needed help to make the company grow.

Jesse, with an engineering degree, has managed to substantially improve and to keep running Che Buono food truck, along with partnering with his wife and growing the businesses.
