Named after its famous freshly baked breadsticks, Grissini offers refined authentic flavours from the Campania region in southern Italy. Using the freshest produce, Chef de Cuisine Valerio Giuseppe Mandile takes a creative approach to traditional Italian cuisine prepared with simplicity to perfection. The restaurant’s convivial, unpretentious ambience and its passionate and personable service also contribute to a memorable dining experience.
Born and raised in the sunny coastal city of Naples, Chef de Cuisine Valerio Mandile first set foot into a commercial kitchen at the age of 13, with passion for cooking stemming from his mother and grandmother’s home cooking. His love for gastronomy has brought him to various high-end restaurants in Italy, Germany and Canada including two Michelin-starred restaurant Don Alfonso 1890 in Naples, and now at Grissini in Hong Kong since June 2021, as he strives to bring authentic and approachable Neapolitan culture to the rest of the world.
Taking the helm at the Grissini kitchen, Chef Valerio has incorporated into the menu some of the best ingredients from Campania and Southern Italy: from creamy burrata from Andria and giant Amalfi lemons, to piennolo tomatoes and colatura di alici – an Italian fish sauce unique to the region, as he celebrates his hometown and its glorious culinary traditions. Using the best produce, Chef Valerio takes a fresh and creative approach to traditional Italian cuisine and believes in the simplicity of premium ingredients, perfectly prepared.
Complete your lunch experience with a special Neapolitan Cuccuma coffee experience. Each pot of Cuccuma brewed coffee serves approximately four cups and comes with an assortment of four homemade traditional Neapolitan pastries.
