As the founder of Pani, the stunning restaurant that continues to win guests over for its delicious dishes, desserts and drinks, Eliana “Pani” Trotta is proud to be a woman in the food industry – and even prouder to be a mom to her 3-year-old daughter, Matilda. “What is most beautiful about being a mother is being able to feel an infinite and unbreakable love,” says Pani. What has surprised her the most about motherhood? “That I have patience,” she laughs. “Motherhood is a permanent school. It’s taught me that children give us a strength and patience we didn’t know we had. They are like a gasoline pump!” Pani, who moved to Miami from Argentina, loves enjoying the Miami beaches with her family and says Matilda is a mini fashionista who chooses her clothes and hairstyles.
Women of Influence
Aventura Mall is incredibly fortunate to know several South Florida moms who are loyal guests and gracious friends. We invited these amazing women and their little ones to join us for a Mother’s Day photoshoot and asked them to share their Aventura Mall favs – from fashion to dining to the places that bring their family joy.
