The name, Margutta is a famous street in Rome (Via Margutta) filled with art galleries and quaint restaurants. In Rio, it is the place where you can find the culinary art work of chef Paolo Neroni. Following in the footsteps of his father, Quirino Neroini, Paolo learned his trade in his hometown in the Marche region of central Italy and was schooled in San Benedetto del Tronto. The influences of Mediterranean cuisine, especially the emphasis on fresh seafood is evident in the preparation of all the Italian specialties, created by Chef Neroni.
