CHEF GIANNI CAPRIOLI
THE MAN BEHIND IT ALL
At the tender age of 19, he opened a small restaurant with his brother and worked with some of the most revered Italian chefs and establishments:
Gino Angelini (Grand Hotel des Bains, Osteria Angelini), Mauro Vincenti (Rex il Restorante), Maurizio Signorini (Ristorante Azzura) and Gianfranco Vissani.
Fast forward to today, Chef Gianni has opened 3 restaurants: Giando, Gia Trattoria, Cotto & Crudo and Mercato Gourmet, a gourmet retail brand that encompasses Mercato by Giando that carries authentic Italian market and Pacific gourmet that offers goods from the pacific
in Hong Kong.
They all stay true to his philosophy: the best food is
made with simple, fresh, quality ingredients and their origins matter.
Finding, cooking and serving the best produce with true passion and love is at the heart of what he does every day.
