as healthy cuisine. Most simply refer to it as art. Although a strict disciple
of classic Italian Regional and Mediterranean cuisine, Fabio understands
that both tradition AND evolution are indispensable given the nature of

are eating healthier today and, at the same time, palates are calling for
vivacious flavors", says Fabio, "our mission is to furnish both
so we must understand where traditional cuisine has to be modified to satisfy
all the needs of our clientele. Transforming these regional cuisines while
respecting the territory of the tradition is where the secret lies".
Fabio receives the Italian
Master Chef's Association's highest award for thirty
years of outstanding contributions to 'arte culinaria'.
