For as long as he can remember, Luigi has always been involved with food. He remembers being in the kitchen with his grandmother helping her to prepare family Sunday dinners or the occasional birthday cake. After obtaining his qualification as a chef, he decided to move to London to improve his English and also to gain new life experiences. Surprisingly, it all happened within just one week and landed in London on a one-way ticket, with no work, no place to stay, and worst of all, unable to able to speak any English. Once he had managed to find a job, he found myself in the kitchen trying to cook and communicate with colleagues with the help of a pocket dictionary. "It was very hard but he was never going to give up," he says.

A couple of years later he achieved one of his dreams by working in a Michelin-starred restaurant, Gordon Ramsey @ Claridge’s. Now 10 years on, he feels like he's finally arrived and loves running a well-known and recognised restaurant and managing a fantastic team of people. "Now…when I step into the ring another fight will begin! Bring it on and never give up!!!"
