dell'ugo new farm opened 11yrs ago by giuseppe & gloria robertiello...both are very much hands on in the business & that attention to detail is obvious when you dine at dell'ugo...that wonderful warm feeling exudes.
their eldest son, nicola robertiello is dell'ugo new farms head chef & his italian way of cooking is superb. nicola spent time cooking in the (soon to be) 3 michelin star restaurant called don alfonso's 1890. don alfonso's 1890 is between naples & sorrento in italy. nicola's dishes are classic with modern finesse added.
on the evening i visited, i sampled a family recipe of the robertiello's called casarecce al ragu. nicola served the ragu in a hollowed out reggiano wheel & it was sensational! i loved my aperitif of smashed strawberries with prosecco & mint. the night was busy, fun & indulgent...i loved it!
