Alberto - Chef/Owner

Tradition and passion for cooking, are two core values that my great grand mother and my mother have brought me up with. I have chosen the art of cooking as more than a passion, it is now my calling. Where I am from it is tradition to start out working in a Restaurant. 

I worked at a traditional Italian restaurant called Adriano. That establishment valued quality and taste over presentation. After that enriching experience, I felt I needed to be stimulated, I wanted to be innovative. This is how I managed to start working at a 1 star Restaurant « La Tenda Rossa » in Florence. 

I then moved up and worked at a 2 star Restaurant Arnolfo in Siena. This is where my passion for French Cuisine began. My next experience was in 3 star restaurant : Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence. Then I was lucky enough to gain experience in New York City, at a 2 star restaurant called Daniel. 

As you may have noticed, I have tried my best to always move forward, gain more experience, widen my horizons. I feel like I still have much to learn and my passion has never been stronger.
