Learn About Our Team
Joe Cassinelli

Raised by a food-loving Italian family in Milford, Massachusetts, Joe Cassinelli has early memories of his Nonna’s handmade pastas drying in the kitchen and preparing meals at home for his encouraging parents. He sought to carry that heartfelt approach to food and hospitality over to Boston, which he accomplished by founding Alpine Restaurant Group in 2009 — bringing Posto, Painted Burro, and Rosebud to the Davis Square neighborhood.

John Delpha
Chef / Partner

Growing up in one of Providence, Rhode Island’s heavily Italian neighborhoods, John Delpha was no stranger to weekends spent around the table with friends, family and the home-cooked food that followed. While living in Georgia and Alabama through his early 20s, John found a fondness for barbecue and grilled oysters that cemented his interest in the culinary world. John’s next culinary pursuit brings him to Rosebud, where he lends his deep and diverse kitchen experience to the down-to-earth neighborhood restaurant and its impressive smoke program.
