After graduating from the hotel management school of Formia, Ilario Vinciguerra acquired significant professional experience in some of the best restaurants in Europe, notably from Don Alfonso 1890, on the characteristic peninsula of Sorrento. The desire to better express his talent led him in 2000 to the ‘Antica Trattoria Monte Costone’ in Galliate Lombardo, a small village in the province of Varese, where for 11 years he developed a real laboratory to introduce people to his culinary philosophy. In 2006 he became Emerging Chef for Gambero Rosso, critics and newspapers – including foreign ones – started taking an interest in him, and so the need for a more important and prestigious location was born. Chef Vinciguerra found this in the Villa Liberty in Gallarate where in 2011 he inaugurated his new Ilario Vinciguerra Restaurant.
Maximum satisfaction of the olfactory, visual and gustatory senses. This is the philosophy of Ilario Vinciguerra in the kitchen. His personality is reflected in his dishes – which he himself designed and conceived – perfection in the presentation, the distinct flavours and the excellence of the ingredients combine the essence of good cuisine, traditional and yet altogether modern. Our cuisine is in constant evolution, never failing to surprise, without ever losing sight of the traditional Mediterranean colours and ingredients. A true gift for lovers of authentic flavours.
a unique experience.
