NIKO ROMITO

While Niko Romito was studying Economics in Rome, his father decided to turn the family Pasticceria (pastry shop), in the little village of Rivisondoli in Abruzzo, into a restaurant. It was here Niko’s early career started, when he would come home on weekends and summers to help in the family business.

After his father’s death in 1999, Niko decided to change career and left his college course to become a chef. He moved to Venice to study at the Etoile and completed stages with chef Valeria Piccini and Salvatore Tassa. On returning to Abruzzo he refurbished (with the help of his sister Christiana) and renamed his family restaurant and Reale was born.

The following decade has seen this talented young chef rise to great critical acclaim. His dishes focus on quality regional ingredients prepared using modern techniques, artistically presented in a minimalist style. In 2007 the restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star and a second Michelin star followed in 2009 ensuring the place of this little village of only 684 inhabitants, on the gastronomic map.
