"Many of you have asked me why I left Hawaii… As a chef and artist, I have of course enjoyed living surrounded by the natural beauty of the islands, and I thought I would always live there.
But, thirteen years ago, while living in Honolulu, my wife Karina and I were blessed with the birth of our son Diego… and then soccer happened… Soccer ??? Yes, soccer.
My dear son's passion for the sport can only be compared to my passion towards art and food and it didn't take us long to figure that there is one place where one can experience all these things.
FLORENCE. The birth place of the renaissance, the birth place of zero kilometer food and WOW!, have you ever seen the passion Italians feel for soccer. And so, a new journey has began, and we welcome you to visit us to experience it all: My creative cuisine with fresh local ingredients, the Chianti wines, the art, and if you are up for it… maybe we'll also go to a soccer game together.
For the ones that have been with me in Hawaii, you already know my unique approach to food and life, and for the new customers, I can assure you that you will enjoy an experience like no other."
