Chef and globetrotter of taste! Backpacking from Florence, he has traveled the world to embrace every possible form of flavors and pairings. Passionate about the history of different cultures and their food habits, Filippo never gets stuck in his way or rules that limit his desire to taste and experience everything edible.
But that's not all! Together with his sommelier wife, Filippo has put together bold and extraordinary wine pairings that will make you touch the stars with just one sip.
After traveling mainly in South America and Asia, Filippo returned to Italy and opened a wine bar where he experiments with everything he has jealously packed into his luggage. A true chef of substance, Filippo considers a meal a loving gesture to his fellow man, just like a caress from a loving parent that lifts the worst of days.
Sociable and outgoing, Filippo loves to share his knowledge and always learn more from others to ensure every guest is satisfied at the table, whatever it takes.
If you are visiting Florence, don't hesitate to drop by Mama's to meet Filippo and feed both your palate and your soul. Filippo will tell you about his Florence, offering his Tuscan hospitality and passion for food to give back something of what he was given as a visitor in the countries he visited, in a "karmic" way.
