The FUNKA Group welcomes Fabio Camilloni as the new chef consultant at Italo Trattoria. He’s bringing back rustic Italian classics, adding salt-crusted whole sea bass, confit duck with merlot sauce, and pizzas to the menu.
Chef Fabio Camilloni hails from Fano, a charming town facing the Adriatic Sea in central Italy. He’s spent the last 21 years in China, working at some really iconic venues back in the city’s heyday, including Casanova and Velvet Lounge. Fabio is also a part of the Slow Food International Organization and Slow Food Greater China as an instructor and expert.
His style of cooking is homey, rustic, and traditional, but with a modern twist. His ethos is to not overcrowd the plate, and to use a few high quality ingredients to create maximum flavor.
On The Menu
The food at Italo is simple and good—a compact menu of Italian favorites featuring antipasti, pastas, pizzas, and heavy hitting mains, including a rarely seen whole salt-crusted sea bass.
