Chef/ Owner

Born in San Dona’di Piave, a town in the Eastern Veneto region that in ancient times was bordering the lagoon with many little islands where the people found refuge after the collapsing of the Roman Empire.
As a child, he loved to spend time in the kitchen with his mother and aunts, watching them prepare meals for special occasions. At the age of 14, he had his first working experience as bar back at the renowned Excelsior Hotel in Jesolo, one of the most popular beach resorts of the Adriatic coast. It was here that he saw his first cruise ship and decided he had to see the world and meet new people.
In 1981, Angelo began working at the legendary Savoy Hotel in London, where he learned all there is to know about the restaurant business. He also developed a passion for wines and different ethnic foods. After several years at the Savoy, he joined Princess Cruises, traveling around the world for the next four years.
Angelo landed in Los Angeles in the late 1980’s and began working at Adriano’s Restaurant in Bel Air. A few years later, he joined the team of Prego Ristorante in Beverly Hills. Ca’ Del Sole Ristorante has been his home from 1994, until his departure in September 2011 to open his new venture, Hostaria Piave, a place that will always show his passion for food and wine and genuine hospitality.

What people are saying

“Magna e Bevi che a Vita xe un Lampo” - Eat & drink because life is too short

EasyReaderNews - The Subtle Venetian - Hostaria Piave

"Hostaria Piave’s Venetian finesse is a welcome contrast to southern Italy’s more brazen flavors" "This is the great dining deal of the South Bay and if you are omnivorous you should stop in and be surprised." Read the entire review here

Open Table - Suzie, Los Angeles

"We love this restaurant and try to go at least once a month. This is the first time we were able to make the Sunday night pre-fixe dinner. The menu changes every week and is fresh, creative and very satisfying. I also enjoy not having to make any decisions as to what I will order. We always enjoy wine at Hostaria and find we get very good advice."

Open Table - Diner, Los Angeles

"Absolutely fantastic! I think anyone that didn't enjoy Hostaria doesn't understand the regional differences between northern and southern Italian cuisine. This is not the place for pizza and spaghetti and meatballs. Everything was delicious-especially the smoked carpaccio and the fennel salad with apples. The one thing that wasn't spot-on was the gnocchi. It had an instant mashed potato consistency and wasn't "toothy" enough for my taste. The almond cake was lovely and just the perfect finish to our meal. We will definitely be going back!"

Facebook Review

Superb in every way! The pace is relaxed and that was divine. Just like Italy ...Best food!

Yelp, January 2017

"Since the first time I was here in 2012, I have been here more times than I can count. Angelo and his staff haven't disappointed me yet. By far the best example of Venetian haute-cuisine anywhere. Fine dining at its best. It isn't that expensive compared to many places but the service is as good as the food. I love to dine al fresco on the patio so much that I might change my name to Al Fresco. It's a jewel of a restaurant and a great find. The GM of Morton's downtown introduced me to Hostaria Piave 5 years ago and he would know a great restaurant."

Yelp - July, 2017

I can't stay away! The staff is so friendly, the food is delicious, the specials are unique, the wine list is awesome, and the vibe is a perfect neighborhood spot. I especially love the wine flights (super reasonable prices) and the smoked fish and meat plates. Great place to grab a drink and a few lite appetizers on a weeknight or go big on the weekend.

"He’s worked hard to make this new restaurant feel like an hostaria from the watery Venetian lagoon."

Daily Breeze - An authentic Venetian experience at Hostaria Piave

"This is a restaurant more concerned about authenticity than about the local taste of the moment."

Brubrubites - Redondo Beach: Hostaria Piave

"The food, as many reputable places would serve their food in Europe, taste good and light with simple local fresh ingredients that are still substantially flavorful."
