About Us



Located in the heart of Old Town Pasadena, Union is a lively, yet intimate neighborhood Italian restaurant and wine bar offering a deeply personal, seasonally Californian interpretation of Northern Italian cuisine. Owner Marie Petulla and Executive Chef Chris Keyser have crafted a rustic yet elegant menu that bring the farmer and guest together, to celebrate the beauty of simplicity, the best local ingredients and the delight of a meal with friends.  

Our thoughtful wine list features a curated selection of Italian and Californian bottles that perfectly pair with Chef Keyser's heartfelt cooking. Everything at Union - from our starters and field selections to our handmade pastas and sustainably raised and prepared meats and fish - all pay homage to community farmers and purveyors, and are meant to be enjoyed with cherished friends and family. 

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
