Wheat Emblem

It is with great sadness that Lorenzo, Tilde and Angela communicate the sudden passing of their beloved brother Augusto (Augie) Mariani on October 21st, 2020.
He was not only our wonderful big brother, but also a loving "Zio Augie" to his nieces and nephews, an affectionate cousin, a loyal friend, not to mention the most dedicated dog owner you could ever meet. His immeasurable attachment to his dear sweet Noelle was unparalleled.
To know Augie was to love him, all of these characteristics are what made him so unique, he was sharp witted, stubborn, fun loving, loyal, quirky (in the most wonderful way possible) and truehearted. Most of all, he was unconditionally devoted to his family.
Augie carried out the legacy of the ASTI Restaurant, a NYC landmark founded by our father in 1925 to perfection – he was a consummate entertainer and host and will be greatly missed by us all.
