Michelin-Starred Chef Ciro Scamardella Brings Italian Cuisine to Cucina


From 4th to 8th September 2019, Cucina proudly invites Michelin-starred celebrity chef Ciro Scamardella to bring his Italian feasts to their stunning restaurant. 

Chef Ciro has been passionate about cooking since he was a child. When he was young, Ciro often helped out in his mother’s kitchen. After graduating from Hotel Management School, Ciro started his career at one-Michelin-star restaurant Marennà as an apprentice, followed by two-Michelin-star restaurants Villa Crespi and La Terrazza di Lucullo, before joining Barcelona’s three-Michelin-star restaurant La Sarte.

Ciro currently serves as Executive chef at Pipero Roma in Rome. The restaurant was recently awarded with a one-Michelin star, and is often flooded with food lovers.

Ciro is from Napoli in Campania, the largest city in southern Italy, renowned for its fine food and wine. Ciro brings an array of Campania flavours to Cucina, with the region’s abundant sunshine  producing some of the freshest vegetables in the country. He’ll kick off the feast with Pan seared scallop, oregano, semidry tomatoes and pesto.

Napoli is also never short of fresh seafood, and that’s showcased in the Sea bream, saffron, beans and truffle, prepared with saffron and truffle, accompanied by Mediterranean sea bream. Ciro will also surprise sweet-tooths with Rose, almond and lychee, in a foam of white cloud. For those who like crispy textures, Orange, ricotta cheese and caramelised cereals is sure to satisfy.

Chef Ciro’s signature dishes can be savoured from 4 to 8 September 2019 at Cucina. A 4-course tasting dinner menu at HK$888 per person will be available, alongside an a la carte menu at lunch and dinner periods. Selected dishes from Chef Ciro’s a la carte menu will also be presented on Cucina’s lunch and weekend brunch menus. For enquiries or reservations, please call 2113 0808.
