Cose Belle boutique will play nonstop Italian tunes

“I’ve always been passionate about fashion,” said Julia D’Alo, who has Bay Area restaurant blood coursing through her veins. D’Alo’s parents, Rosa and Guiseppe, ran Trattoria Siciliana, their third restaurant, on College Avenue in Elmwood, from 1998 until October 2020. Her brothers, Angelo and Gerry, who, like her, grew up working in their parents’ restaurants, are now part owners (with some members of Green Day) of Agrodolce in North Berkeley. 

So perhaps it was inevitable that she would combine those influences in Cose Belle, which means “beautiful things” in Italian, a boutique featuring affordable fashion, home goods and Italian specialty foods. The store’s grand opening Saturday will feature special events from noon-6 p.m., along with prosecco, antipasti and dolci.
