Chef Antonio Vitale honed his craft at several of Europe’s most highly acclaimed restaurants, and the dishes he prepares for his guests are veritable works of art, flavours that are a symphony to delight the palate, sometimes allegro, other times adagio, but always perfectly tuned and always an unforgettable experience.
The success of his art lies both in its simplicity and its extraordinary ingredients. He uses only local ingredients that are seasonal and fresh, blending tradition with brave new ideas and a touch of creativity that are his “signature”. The plates that leave his kitchen are unique, never to repeated in exactly the same way. Antonio could very well have become an artist instead of a chef and he believes that form is substance. When a guest is served he receives a true work of art – first a delight to the eye, and then for the palate.
