Giovanni Spataro

Culina Chef de Cuisine
Giovanni Spataro has been appointed the new Chef de Cuisine of Culina Ristorante + Caffé at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. Born and raised in Palermo, Sicily, Chef Giovanni Spataro’s passion for food started at a young age. Growing up in a country and family where food was celebrated as one of life’s most important pleasures, Spataro was naturally drawn to the culinary arts. Chef Giovanni is now settling into his new role as Chef de Cuisine of Culina Ristorante + Caffé, introducing a new menu featuring his signature “skinni” pizzas, artisanal pasta and fresh crudo dishes.

“I base my culinary style on the freshness of ingredients, always striving to work with seasonal, local ingredients to respect the sustainability of the planet. Combining fresh ingredients with Italian culinary techniques, I am inspired to redesign street food dishes from my town in Palermo in a new, elegant way. I am honoured to be the Chef at Culina Ristorante + Caffé and work for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, one of the most luxurious hospitality companies in the world."

Los Angeles is a paradise for chefs. The quality of fruits, vegetables and herbs in California is amazing, and each restaurant has its own unique philosophy about food, which reminds me of Italy.
