About Chef Perbellini
Chef Perbellini comes from a family of renowned confectioners recognised as one of the best in Italy since 1890. Notwithstanding such a strong background, he discovered that his true passion did not remain limited to just pastries but expanded to the world of gastronomy.
After graduating from the Recoaro Cooking Institute in Italy, Chef Perbellini started his culinary career in several famed restaurants in Verona, such as the Michelin two-star Dodici Apostoli and Michelin one-star Marconi. He then worked at San Domenico in Imola with Chef Valentino Marcattilii for three years before moving to France where he obtained professional experience in various restaurants, including Taillevent, L’Ambroisie and Le Château d’Esclimont in Paris and La Terrasse in Juan-les-Pins.
Moving back to Italy, he became sous chef at the Michelin-starred Concorde in Villa Poma, Milan. In 1989, he opened his first restaurant at his father’s birthplace, Isola Rizza, followed by four other eateries – Du De Cope, Al Capitan della Cittadella, Locanda 4 Cuochi and Tapasotto – with a diversified range of specialities.
In 2010, Chef Perbellini was appointed president of the Italian committee for the biennial culinary competition “Bocuse d’Or”, which is recognised as the Oscars of the culinary world.
Angelini delivers authentic Italian cuisine using only the finest ingredients of the season, accompanied by an extensive wine list of over 100 Italian wines. Guests are welcome to enquire about wine suggestions to complement their dishes.
