Humble beginnings as a cook in a local pizzeria in Johannesburg South saw a young Saverio’s first passion for food unfold at a mere 19 years old. A management role at that very Gino’s spawned opportunity as a manager at Nino’s and after a brief stint there, Saverio decided to further his love of the industry by attending Birnham College and becoming a professional chef.
Thereafter he made his way to the Big Apple, New York, where he spent two years working at a popular deli on Central Avenue and Deemaria’s Pizzeria (home of the 32-inch pie!) honing his skills and hunger for culinary knowledge.
