Summary of where the Chef’s cuisine is inspired from and how he/she goes about expressing it

I'm originally from Sicily and I guarantee you that your experience with me will be a fresh one. Especially with our sea food dishes that are known for their freshness. Our motto is: If the fish is not fresh we don't cook. That goes without saying "I would never use frozen ingredients".

How did the Chef learn how to cook and what is his story?

Even though I was trained in school, I thank all my culinary experience to my family who has been running a restaurant for the last 40 years. For the past 10 years now I have moved to Dubai where I spend every day in different location and kitchen. My food is very particular because I only use fresh products and day to day ingredients you can find in markets. All of my dishes will have that hint of the Sicilian style and touch. Never forget where you come from...

Chef Antonio was very pleasant and easy to reach. He offered many options for the food and came to my place in advance to check the kitchen and to make sure everything will go smoothly, no surprises. Very well prepared and punctual as per the plan, he had all what he needed with him. He came along with his team which well supported him. They managed our kitchen well and kept it tidy. It was an excellent experience, good selection, it couldn't be better Italian food. I do appreciate Antonio's work and talent and I highly recommend him.

Chef Antonio is a real character with a real soul from Sicilia being influenced with Asian cuisine ( his wife is from Thailand). We had a great night learning traditional Italian dishes revisited with eastern touch. He has being living n Dubai since 10 years and will share a lot of secret of the city. Try it !
