Stefano Di Gennaro

After fastening the apron in a pastry lab when he was 11 years old, chef Stefano Di Gennaro earned his diploma at the Hotellerie Institute of Molfetta in 2004. Stefano has had a long career in restaurant work, spending many years in various kitchens across the country.  Despite that, Stefano never lost his innate sense of humility, regardless of the fact that his cuisine has been recognized as one of the best in Southern Italy. He was even awarded a prestigious Michelin star for his outstanding culinary skills.  A dream came true for Stefano when he opened Quintessenza Ristorante, and a new beginning where the best ingredients will be prepared in the most respectful manner.
