Angelo D. Calderan- Hoste/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.
