Giovanna and Marianna
Marianna Scala and Giovanna Celia have been the souls of the L’Abside restaurant since the opening.
They have been working together for more than 20 years and share the tasks of management and service.
Professionalism and empathy in welcoming are their hallmarks which they know how to combine with perfect knowledge of the dishes on the menu to offer you targeted advice and suggestions in choosing.
Marianna and Giovanna constitute that female soul which is perhaps the most evident and recognizable distinctive character of the Abside.
Equipped with great experience and preparation, our chef Michele is the soul of the kitchen of the Abside.
Shy and of few words, he finds his world and his language in the kitchen, managing to coordinate the work of the brigade and to check that all the dishes are always perfect and delicious.
Thoroughbred Amalfitan loves to use the ingredients of our land to create even unusual combinations but always solidly linked to tradition. He prepares handmade pasta every day: scialatielli, pappardelle and maltagliati and is also an excellent pastry chef.
Two other excellent cooks accompany him and assist him in his work: Ibrahem Eid Pasalyous and Casimiro Naclerio who have been part of our family for some years and help him in the service and preparation.
Andrea e Veronica
