About Altiro Founders
Former professional soccer player of Mexican teams, Executive Chef Roberto Avila went from real estate guru in Mexico to restauranteur in Illinois with his wife, Erika Villanueva who is the interior designer of Altiro's restaurants.
Roberto has been successful in everything journey that he has embarked in. What is the key to his success? It is simple. Erika says, "The motto my husband lives by and says to his restaurant employees when they decide to leave Altiro's restaurants is, "Whatever you do, give it your 100%. Always strive to be the best at whatever you do, wherever you go."
This motto is reflected in the culture at Altiro's restaurants, from their interior decor, dish presentations, menu development to their source of their ingredients and warm customer service. But, the secret ingredients that makes their menu delish are LOVE and PASSION!
