About Churchill'S Italiano

Located within the Holiday Inn Executive Center, Churchill’s is Columbia’s only four-star restaurant. They serve sumptuous Italian cuisine in an elegant atmosphere by professional wait staff. The Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia is pleased to announce the appointment of Ignazio Gianfranco Munna as Executive Chef to oversee the entire culinary department at the hotel including Churchill's Restaurant and The Sports Zone Restaurant & Grill, as well as banquet & catering services. Chef Munna is a native of Monreale, Sicily – a region rich in gastronomic traditions. His passion for cooking began at a very young age, and he attended culinary school at the Alberghiero Istituto in Palermo soon after high school, where he gained his culinary knowledge side-by-side with Master Chefs such as the Barone Brothers, Chef D'Amato, and Chef Jan Piege. Munna then mastered creativity and presentation in other styles of cuisine by studying in France and Germany before returning to Italy to mentor with Chef Giacomo D'Aleo, where he learned about Mediterranean cuisine in great detail. He brought his lifelong culinary experience to the United States in 1996, and currently lives in Columbia, Missouri. Munna brings more than 30 years' experience to his role including Executive Chef positions at Le Absidi in Monreale, Italy; the Hotel San Marco in Sciacca, Italy; and Bartolino's Osterio in St. Louis, Missoui. He also owned Gianfranco's At The Opera House in Red Bud, Illinois before moving to Columbia. Some of the many culinary awards Munna has received include First Place at the "Taste of Elegance" in Florence, Italy; First Place at "Salone Gastronomico per la Cucina Mediterranea; and a Gold Medal for "Best Chef Worthy of Honors Gastronomy Competition" in Palermo, Italy.
