Zaccariello’s Tailor & Formal Wear opened its doors in Connecticut in 1966 by local tailor Pietro Zaccariello. He ran the store with his family for almost 40 years until he passed it on to very close family friends.
In 2004, Frank and Rosa Bonavena took over as owners of the Wallingford shop, and as mother and son, they have kept the family tradition that made Zaccariello's a trusted place for family and friends to visit for great men’s formal wear and a peaceful atmosphere.
Rosa Bonavena was born in Naples and raised in Tuscany, Italy and moved here with her husband, Domenic, in 1975. She grew up in Italy learning the seamstress trade and used her skills upon arriving in the U.S. She worked for Gants Shirtmaker for five years and then Robby Lens Fashions for five years. She also worked for Home Goods® as a front-line supervisor for another five years. She has over 30 years of seamstress experience.
