Fabulous taste journey


Simple and balanced. Alexander Petillo brings together flavors and specialties from Italy and beyond to create his own culinary world, full of surprising artistry.

“I traveled all over the world, feeling and learning the authenticity of each local speciality food. I benefit a lot from working with other chefs and restaurants. In Japan, in Thailand, in Sweden, in Mexico, and elsewhere, chefs have different philosophies and ways of handling ingredients.”
