During this travel of over 10 years he worked for London’s Hyde Park in London, Grand Hotel Costa Smeralda in Costa Rica, Disney Cruise Line in Florida. In 2003 the chef went back home to his loved Taormina, where he opened a his own restaurant “La Capinera” a very appreciated and well known restaurant in all the Mediterranean island, awarded with a 1 Michelin Star in 2006 and part of the Jeune Restaurateur d’Europe.

I asked a friend of mine who is the best chef in Taormina and she introduced me to Pietro. He organized for me and my clients unique experiences and invited us to his michelin star restaurant telling his story with passion and kindness.
