Portrait of Chef Paolo Lavezzini in front of greenery

Paolo Lavezzini

A native of Emilia Romagna, a region known as “the bread basket of Italy,” Lavezzini decided he wanted to become a chef when he was a child. He has honed his culinary skills in some of Europe’s most prestigious Michelin-starred restaurants, then spent 10 years in Brazil leading restaurant Neto as Executive Chef. While Paulo’s cuisine philosophy has been influenced by his hometown as well as several fine-dining experiences in Tuscany, it’s also has been strongly enriched by his period in Brazil. He defines himself “Italian by heart, Brazilian by soul.”
