Chef Luigi

Introducing Luigi Causarano – Head Chef at Luigi’s Italian Ristorante

Born on the island of Sicily, south of the Italian peninsula, Luigi, at a young age became passionate about food, creating dishes inspired by the rich and unique culture of his homeland.

Further to studying and completing his national diploma in hospitality and catering Luigi travelled to Manchester, UK and brought his passion and ideas as a Sous Chef at top eateries, San Carlo and Numero 235.

With this new experience and a command of the English language he returned to Sicily to gain more valuable culinary knowledge. During this time, he worked at the 5 star deluxe San Domenico Palace, Taormina, and the two Michelin star rated Restaurants; the Principe and the Duomo Ciccio Sultana Ragusa. Luigi’s next stop on his culinary leaning journey was at the MecTuriddu which specialises in organic Sicilian slow food, sourced with low impact on the environment.

Symbolised by the snail; ‘slow food’ It’s a way of saying no to the rise of fast food and fast life. Slow Food means living an unhurried life, taking time to enjoy simple pleasures, starting at the table.

With this new knowledge Luigi returned to Manchester as Head Chef at San Carlo ‘ FUMO’. Now ready to bring his ingenuity and experiences to a new opportunity, Luigi has taken up the role as Head Chef at Luigi’s Italian Ristorante where he looks forward to bringing refined Italian cuisine to the table to enjoy, cooked with passion and originality.

‘ As a nation that loves to eat, we hold the food, and the people who prepare it, close to our hearts’.
