Italian-born chef Antonio ‘Lello’ Favuzzi has been appointed to lead the kitchen at Holland Park restaurant Belvedere.

Favuzzi will bring a touch of Italy to the West London restaurant showcasing ‘his love for provenance and seasonal cooking with produce at its heart’.

His dishes include vitello tonnato; beetroot ravioli with smoked burrata; and turbot steak with clams and saffron. 

Favuzzi also makes use of the Abbotsbury Road’s venue wood-fired oven to prepare thin-crusted pizzas topped with fine Italian produce.

Options will include porcini and taleggio; truffle; and pear, gorgonzola and pecan are cooked over flames and served directly to the table.

Desserts are modern takes on classics including tiramisu; the Belvedere cannoli; or blueberry and almond tart. 

Favuzzi has a CV that includes Corbin & King, Mortimer House and the now closed L’Anima. 

He was most recently executive chef at Macellaio RC, overseeing the steak-focused Italian restaurant chain’s six kitchens.
