Mauro believes in the link between passion and food and anyone who dines with him, gets it immediately. His philosophy of food is simplicity, honesty and most important, passion….the slow buildup from the foreplay of antipasto to the rich explosion of piatto forte and the gentle reveling of dolce…..that’s A Mauro!
