This summer, the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi welcomes an innovative Italian chef at the helm of Angelina, the Italian Restaurant and Lounge. Known for his hearty, yet healthy cooking style, Chef Fabrizio Aceti brings with him more than 25 years of experience working with renowned five-star resorts, luxury hotel groups and restaurants from around the world.
In his guest role as Chef de Cuisine, Chef Fabrizio will be in charge of the culinary team at the popular Italian restaurant, bar and lounge. Drawing from the traditional northern Italian dishes that influence his repertoire, Chef Fabrizio has created new dishes, featuring innovative pizzas and pastas, as well as other classic Italian dishes.
Among Chef Fabrizio’s favourites on the new menu are Bruschetta al Salmone and Tiramisú “Glacée”.
Chef Fabrizio cultivated his interest in authentic Italian cuisine while growing up in Piedmont, in the northwest mountains of Italy, and he also developed an appreciation for fine dining through his passion for travel. Both of his passions have been fueled by his international culinary career – having lived in eight different countries over the past 25 years.
Prior to joining the Metropole, Chef Fabrizio worked as the Executive Chef at Hilton Hotel Singapore as well as a number of Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts throughout Asia, including properties in Xian, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore. His international career includes stints in some of the most renowned Michelin-starred restaurants around the world such as Le Louis XV Restaurant at Alain Ducasse à l’Hôtel de Paris in Monte-Carlo, and SPOON by Alain Ducasse in London.
“Great chefs should have a global perspective on food”, said Chef Fabrizio. “My goal is to uphold the timeless sophistication of Angelina, and at the same time continue to expand our culinary offerings by bringing in more authentic flavours from Italy’s different regions.”
