About Me

My journey to becoming a private, classically trained Italian chef began in 2004. After years spent behind a desk, working as a lawyer in my family’s law firm, I decided that it was time for a change. I had a dream to catch. It had always been my passion to cook Italian food and I wanted to devote myself full-time to the culinary arts. Working my way up through different positions at some of the best restaurants in the world-renowned Aosta Valley region of Italy, I gained invaluable experience and insights from the masters of Italian cooking. Eventually, I was able to successfully own and operate my own restaurants.
With 15+ years of experience in the hospitality and restaurant world under my belt, I decided to move to New York in 2017. I got my green card and started my own business, providing private chef services.
Currently, I provide a variety of services from weekly meal plans for families to catering events, such as dinner parties, birthday and holiday celebrations, special occasions and other events. I also provide individual at-home cooking lessons.
My cooking methodology has always been to work completely from scratch and with the freshest organic ingredients available, with a special eye to the seasonality of produce, as much as possible. Being brought up in Italy, as a chef, I have always been strongly committed to respecting traditional methods, cooking techniques and recipes. Cooking for New York families, meeting people with diverse backgrounds, food culture, culinary habits and tastes, has really helped me to expand my culinary horizons and give me the opportunity to reinterpret and adapt different types of cuisine from around the world with an Italian touch and feel.

  • Alessandro made my parent’s anniversary so special! They were so impressed by everything and loved everything he made. He was also so easy and accommodating to work with while planning this meal for them. I am so happy I went with him as the chef and would recommend him to anyone in the future for any occasion.

  • Chef Alessandro was amazing, everything from prep to cleanup was perfect. The menu was exactly what we wanted and the food was all so delicious. We did not leave one crumb on any of our plates. He made sure the food was all plated perfectly. We will absolutely have him cook for us again. If you are looking for a chef, look no further you have found an amazing one with Chef Alessandro!

  • Chef Alessandro was amazing and incredibly accommodating. I am vegetarian, so he prepared a separate main course for me while preparing meat for my husband. We had a delicious 4-course meal!

    We both really enjoyed the food and felt like we were taken back to Italy. I would highly recommend his services!
