He is a big fan of champagne and good food, as well as of his work: this can truly be understood when you step foot inside his restaurant; Stefano has the ability to accommodate and pamper his customers, making them feel at home.
He continues to be present in the Formia restaurant, especially on a Saturday morning and during the summer.
