Giuseppe De Gennaro
Born in Pozzuoli, Italy, Chef Giuseppe Di Gennaro has brought passion and innovation to the Calgary dining scene over the last 19-years with the creation of his restaurants; Il Sogno, CAP, Borgo Trattoria, and his latest venture Cotto Italian Comfort Food.
After working in his homeland at various restaurants, Giuseppe left Italy at age 17 for the bright lights of London, England. Plying his trade, he worked his way up through the ranks in several high-end London establishments in the mid- to late 80’s. With his experience gained from working in Italy, London and Australia, Giuseppe and his Australian wife settled in Calgary in 1996, and he has since become and impressive and high-profile member of the city’s restaurant scene.
His flavourful, visually appealing and contemporary version of ‘new’ Italian food has won him not only critical acclaim, but many fans amongst Calgary’s community.
