Riccardo then began his culinary trajectory over ten years ago, taking him through some of the best-known establishments in Europe and America, including two Michelin starred Il Pellicano in Porto Ercole, Italy, Three Michelin starred El Cellar de Can Roca in Girona, Spain (nominated number one best restaurant for 3 years) La Broche in Madrid and most recently Soho House Group and A Voce Columbus, acclaimed restaurants in New York, where he served as Executive Chef.

His refined, modern New American and Mediterranean dishes combine classical and innovative techniques and the finest seasonal ingredients, a style that he plans on bringing to his newest position as Executive Chef here at The Columbia Tower Club.
