Our talented Head Chef, Giuseppe Cafaro began his career working in his parent’s restaurant in Noepoli, learning the basics of pizza making from his mother mamma Maria – as well as about secrets to bread and baking from his Grandmother, Nonna Rosa.
His first move from Italy took Giuseppe to Frankfurt for a year aged 18, and following this, the travel bug was set and he moved to Milan before starting up in London in his early 20s. His first job in London was at Italian restaurant Princi, where we looked after the pizza and bread section. It would be his next job at L’Anima, that would see Giuseppe meet Francesco Mazzei, our Chef Patron. Giuseppe started as Head Baker under Mazzei at L’Anima, following which he opened L’Anima Cafe as Sous-Chef.
The next and final challenge before arriving with us at Radici, would be at Sartoria, Mazzei’s high end Mayfair restaurant. Following these adventures, Giuseppe now joins us up in Islington, bringing the finest Southern Italian ingredients to the kitchen for wonderfully rustic dishes.
