Growing up in Northern Italy meant being surrounded by notoriously good food and wine at a young age, which meant that Christian’s future as a Chef was well established before he even knew it! His early days were spent cooking with the family, utilising the abundance of amazing produce, and learning to handle them with the most traditional methods.

Christian’s career officially began as a Chef in Milan, working in a number of distinguished restaurants, before moving to the Milan Intercontinental. A good relationship with the Intercontinental helped him transfer to London to gain experience and consultation from the famed Giorgio Locatelli.

After many years of cooking his way around Europe, Christian moved to Sydney, where he displayed his traditional Italian cuisine as the Head Chef at places like Bambini Trust and The Corner House, with numerous high scores and write-ups from the Sydney Good Food Guide.

Christian has the trademark perpetual Italian passion for all things food and wine. When he’s not cooking, Christian can be found eating his way around Sydney or shopping at the local markets for the best seasonal produce he can lay his hands on!

Our dinner on Friday night was just wonderful with our chef, Christian, and our waiter, Juliana. Christian is just full of personality and introduced each magnificent course - the Wagyu beef was particularly beautiful and Juliana was delightful and took initiative to go above and beyond with service. Thank you to Christian for replacing Mark at short notice. Thank you Ellie and Sonja At Your Table

Christian was amazing. Professional and friendly. He presented each meal and was happy to answer any questions. Food was perfection and our guests could not stop talking about how wonderful the meal was. We will definitely be using him again!

Christian made the impossible possible by serving my husband and I a beautiful entree which included Burrata cheese. My husband does not like cheese, and I had put in the wrong entree for us, but he ended up loving it so much he even asked me to make it for him from now on. Christian was very polite, his food was amazing and we enjoyed my husbands birthday a lot, by staying at home and having these amazing 3 courses served to us. We have spoken highly about the service and Christian to many of our friends.
