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.
Cooking had always been my passion 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, “da Sandro” in Saint Vincent, Italy, and “Al Primo Piano” in Vercelli, Italy.

With almost 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, offering private chef services.

Currently, I provide a variety of services from weekly meal plans for families to catering events, such as dinner parties, birthdays and holiday celebrations, special occasions and other events. I also provide individual at-home cooking lessons.

  • Chef Alessandro was fantastic! The food was absolutely delicious and working with Alessandro was very easy. He was very flexible in terms of the menu, updating to accommodate a gluten-free guest, and he was super responsive on any outreach. On the night, he delivered an incredible meal and our guests raved about the food. He also left the kitchen neat and tidy. We could not have asked for more!

  • Chef Alessandro was incredible! We had a dinner for a small group of four to celebrate a birthday. He could not have made the occasion better. Everything from the quality of food, to the creativity of presentation and attention to detail made this a night to remember. Thank you so much for such an amazing evening!

  • Alessandro was fantastic. He was very easy to work with in the design of my menu. His food was excellent. All my guests were very happy with the quality of the food and service.
    Everyone at the table was meant to celebrate my birthday with me in Italy this year. Due to COVID that did not happen. Alessandro’s cooking at lovely stories of Italy brought all of us to the hillsides of Tuscany.
    It was a most enjoyable evening.

  • I hired Alessandro for a girls dinner at my house and I cannot say enough good things about him. From start to finish, everything was phenomenal. He made cooking our 3 course meal (for 7 of us) in my tiny kitchen look easy! He left my kitchen spotless.

    I highly recommend the eggplant parmigiana.
    Alessandro was easy to work with prior and even easier to talk with that night. I am so happy I hired Alessandro and would absolutely hire him again in the future!

  • 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!
