After 7 years alongside the chef Franco Caffara - the only Michelin-starred chef in Como city - who unveiled him tips and secrets of the creations related to the sea and the South of Italy, he decided to take his own road carrying on a gourmet cuisine guided by a single keyword: respect for the raw produce. This is the identity of Kitchen. Andrea is the "orchestra director" of the brigade and has been recognised with his first Michelin star in the 2021 guide!
Born in 1996, after his studies and experiences in different pastry shops, he became head pastry chef of a well-known restaurant in the centre of Como, working for the first time with Andrea. The partnership is now renewed with the entry into the Kitchen's brigade. He will treat with the conclusions of your menu. His creations ranges from the reinterpretations of traditional recipes to more innovative dishes.
Young and bubbly but at the same time a solid pillar of the team, she began her studies in Como, maturing the passion for service year after year. After several working experiences, she arrives at one of the historic Michelin-starred restaurants on Lake Como, a fundamental moment for her formation. At Kitchen, she loves the conviviality and innate elegance of the location. Upon arrival, she will always welcome you with a smile, guiding you to discover the creations of our chefs and building the ideal tasting itinerary for you.
Energetic and focused, born in 1999, after her studies and a working experience in Valencia, Maria Chiara returned to Italy where she began working at a renowned hotel in Como. Then comes the opportunity to be part of the team of Antonino Cannavacciuolo's restaurant, Villa Crespi (currently 3 Michelin stars) which he seizes on the fly and, in 2021, arrives at the Kitchen Restaurant as responsible of the wine cellar.
