Chef Salvatore loves creating dishes from what he sees from the local as well international markets. That is why he can offer off menu items, whatever the season. This is a creative process that he loves to immerse himself in, making changes here and there for variety and so that traditional Italian dishes are refreshed from time to time. Known for his hands-on approach to managing his restaurants, Chef Salvatore’s continuous quest for freshness takes him to Manila’s wet markets to personally choose seafood. He also brings in high quality ingredients like Wagyu from Japan, seafood from Europe and cheeses and cured meats from Italy.
