Eating Local: Gabby Karan and Gianpaolo de Felice Revitalize Tutto il Giorno

Sensory pleasures await at the newly renovated Tutto il Giorno Southampton. Creative Director and Co-owner Gabby Karan de Felice gives The Purist a tour.

“My husband Gianpaolo and I, along with our close friends Gally and David Mayer, wanted to create a place we could call home: a comfortable, chic environment where we’d welcome friends, family and community. Tutto Southampton has become an extension of how we all live, offering healthy Mediterranean cuisine inspired by Gianpaolo’s Southern Italian flair—we serve gluten-free pasta and use fresh, local ingredients. When I arrive at Tutto Southampton, I am able to finally exhale and enjoy a calming, fun experience. Urban Zen, my mother Donna Karan’s lifestyle, home and interiors collection, played an integral part in the creation of the space. Many design elements in Tutto, including the chandelier, pillows, pottery and art, are made by Haitian artisans we met through the Urban Zen Foundation. We’re excited to invite diners into our newly renovated space, where we’ve added more doors and windows to bring in more beautiful sunlight. Our use of reclaimed oak and putty gray adds to the soothing color palette. Tutto is all about the experience: from the food to the atmosphere, it nurtures all of the senses.” 56 Nugent St., Southampton,
