Trasca & Co celebrates 1st anniversary


Sawgrass Village eatery Trasca & Co celebrated its first anniversary recently with an afternoon of entertainment, kids’ activities and good food. Musician Eric Alabiso entertained patrons on guitar, while families enjoyed face painting, a balloon artist and a photo booth. Owner Sara Frasca said that business has been strong ever since last fall, when the Florida Times-Union named Trasca the “Best New Restaurant in Jacksonville.” Frasca also attributed the restaurant’s success to its focus on the panino sandwich first invented by her grandmother and passed down through three generations of family restaurateurs.

“It’s been great to see the strong support we’ve enjoyed from the local community,” Frasca said.
