Now married fifteen years, the two have four daughters, Lucia Rose (11), Carina Rose (10), Isabetta Rose (8), and Adelina Rose (6). Boston Rob is an avid amateur chef and often shares his culinary creations on social media.

Rob's recipes are shaped by dishes he enjoyed both as a child of Italian heritage as well as those from his worldwide travels.
