Chef Michael Gavala
Chef Michael Gavala has 35 years of restaurateur/catering experience. His passion for catering began in his youth working for his uncle’s catering company. Starting out at the bottom and working his way up, Gavala developed a clear vision of how to effectively operate all angles of a catering business keeping his clients’ visions and requests close in mind and executing each detail with precision. After attending the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, Gavala started his first catering business and gourmet Italian Market in New Jersey. In 1994, Chef Gavala moved to Ft. Myers and became owner/operator of Sasse il Pizzaiuolo where he created new twists on classical Italian and country French cuisine earning a two time title of Best Italian Restaurant from Gulf Shore Life. Gavala continued catering but limited his services to select events. He expanded the restaurant and offered the first and only home winemaking facility in the area. In addition to off-premise catering, in 2013 Gavala’s G3 Catering Company became the exclusive caterer for the Sidney & Berne Davis Arts Center in historic downtown Fort Myers, offering its clients consistent, upscale catering with a variety of menus and options to please each clients’ style, taste and budget.
