Celeb chef Christian Petroni, known in Connecticut as a former partner in Stamford's Fortina restaurant, is lending his expertise in Italian food to the Bertucci's restaurant group. Petroni, a past "Chopped" winner and victor on season 14 of "Food Network Star," grew up in an Italian family in the Bronx, and learned traditional Italian cooking from his mother and grandmother.

"I’m thrilled to collaborate with Bertucci’s. It offers the authentic tastes I grew up enjoying and cooking with my family, and it’s the food I’m known for," he said in a statement. The limited-time-only menu features specials like pizzas with spicy meatballs and prosciutto with caramelized onions, rigatoni alla vodka with crispy pepperoni, oven-baked rigatoni with meatballs and fettuccine with Italian sausage ragu.
