Augusto Tombolato | Executive Chef

Augusto Tombolato, born in 1960 in province of Varese, in the north of Italy, became the Executive Chef of the Casanova Restaurant 10 years ago, after having gained a wide experience in Italy and abroad. He started his brilliant career in 1975 as commis de cuisine for Costa Cruises during Summer while he was still studying at Varese Hospitality School. After graduation he began to work for the highest-level restaurants, such as the Locanda Cipriani and the Harry's Bar in Venice, and for the most famous and prestigious hotel restaurants such as the The Gritti Palace in Venice and of the Principe di Savoia in Milan. He then enriched his knowledge with several abroad experiences in Japan, Kenya, Korea, Russia, Dubai where he learnt the local cuisine bases.

The true essence of Tombolato's cuisine is the Mediterranean tradition, with its balance of taste and health and the strict employment of fresh and natural products, following the rhythms of seasons. Tombolato then puts his creativity and his lively personality in the creation of dishes and new culinary creations, every day.
