Il Pampero has announced the appointment of Head Chef, Matteo D’Elia.

Hailing from Rome, Italy, Matteo has studied Italian cuisine at a number of top hospitality schools and worked across a range of Rome’s five-star hotels including Baglioni Hotel Regina, Hotel Imperiale and Hotel delle Minerve.

After spending some time working at Roberto’s Restaurant at the Hilton Amsterdam and then the two-Michelin starred Spectrum at the Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam, Matteo travelled to London where he has worked at Claude Bosi at Bibendum and Galvin at Windows.
