ABOUT HEAD CHEF MASSIMO SPERONI
After a global search, celebrated Italian flavour maker and fine dining specialist Massimo Speroni joined the multi-award winning Bacchus in January this year. He flew in direct from the 2 Michelin-starred restaurant San Domenico in Imola, Italy where he was Sous Chef, working with owner-chef Valentino Marcattilii. He also worked with Chef Marcattilii in his formative years as a Chef de Partie and Junior Sous, and credits the famed Italian chef for much of his flavour preferences now. He brings with him star-studded experience – having worked at the 1 Michelin-starred restaurant Café le Paillotes in Pescara, under Chef Consultant the acclaimed Heinz Beck from the 3 Michelin-starred La Pergola. At the opening of the five star Romeo Hotel in Naples he worked under Chef Andrea Aprea and for the high summer season of 2014, he was Head Chef at the Hotel Monte Del Re’s fine dining restaurant.

Massimo’s food leans towards fresh, clean and light classically created dishes. Since joining Bacchus he has also introduced a new layer to the overall menu and dining experience – a Raw & Share Menu, essentially a starter menu to begin the culinary adventure.
