Who is Jonathan Davino Parents? His Family Background
He is the son of Roger (father) and Velda Davino (mother). Jonathan is the grandson of Ralph and Marie F. Davino. His grandmother Marie passed away in April 2011. She was recognized as “Mama Marie” in the neighborhood of Taylor Street, a shelter for Italian immigrants in the early 1900s.
Davino was born in the United States of America. He is an American as per his nationality and belongs to the Caucasian ethnicity.
Jonathan Career as a Restauranteur
Davino is the proud owner of the restaurant called Mista Pizza, located in Chicago. He operates the business along with his father Roger. On the other hand, they also owned a restaurant named Pompeii Xpress at 2931 N. Broadway Ave. in Lakeview.
However, shortly after the establishment of Pompeii, Jonathan’s uncle Ralph Davino, the owner of Pompei Bakery Ltd sued him and his father over the use of Pompei’s name to open another Italian eatery.
Their Legal Battle
Ralph who also owns Pompei Little Italy restaurants on the Near West Side filed a complaint against his brother Roger and nephew Jonathan in U.S. District Court in Chicago on 30th July 2013. He claimed that the name of their restaurant Pompeii Xpress violated the trademark on the Pompei.
He further said in his complaint that his family members are also deceiving customers by saying their restaurant is affiliated with the Pompei franchise.
As per sources, Jonathan’s Lakeview restaurant also used red script lettering similar to that already used by his uncle’s restaurant.
Ralph’s attorney Daniel Tarpey said to Chicago Business,
U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman ordered Jonathan and his dad to change the name of their restaurant name. And they later named it ‘Davino’s Xpress.’ Moreover, the judge also gave them a temporary restraining order.
In addition, the pioneer of the brand was Luigi Davino who opened Pompei in 1909. And the name Pompei was inspired by its location near Our Lady of Pompeii Church.
Davino has earned good fortune from his restaurant business. His net worth stands at $300,000 as of 2021. Sources suggest, the businessman currently resides in Chicago.
Is Sydney Sweeney Really Jonathan Davino Girlfriend?
The answer to the question, Jonathan is dating Sydney. However, the couple who has been in a relationship for a couple of years has kept their romance out of the public eye for the past several months.
The Two First Appeared in a Birthday Party
Rumors of Jonathan’s romance with girlfriend Sweeney surfaced on the internet when they first appeared together in October 2018. The two were spotted at the InStyle event as well as the dinner party of Kate Spade at Spring Place in Los Angeles.
In addition, in September 2019, the ‘Everything Sucks!’ star also attended the birthday party of her boyfriend Davino. It was organized at TAO Chicago Nightclub. As per sources, the duo put on a lot of PDA at the party and even danced together to the tune of Sam Feldt.
Furthermore, back in December 2019, when the EliteDaily‘s interviewer asked her about most favorite destinations the actress would like to go. She answered Italy’s Amalfi Coast and Chicago.
Accidentally, Sydney already visited Amalfi Coast, the world’s romantic destination for the couple in 2019. Again, when the interviewer asked her with whom she was there? She cryptically replied, “I was with a friend.” She also revealed it wasn’t her friend from the Hollywood industry. So, it is clear that Sweeney was with Jonathan.
Their Public Appearances
The romantic couple was spotted together while soaking up the sun at Maui, Hawaii in November 2020. Sydney was there for the shooting for her future HBO series, The White Lotus. The two packed in a lot of PDA at the time. Additionally, the two also appeared in several other functions together.
Nonetheless, it’s been a few months that the duo is off the spotlight. So, as of now, we are yet to sure that the lovebirds are still together or not.
Social Media Presence
There are no social media accounts that officially belongs to Jonathan Davino. Although the restauranter is on Twitter or Instagram, it seems these accounts are private.
