Meet Guest Chef Piero Premoli

Chef Piero Premoli is preparing the dinner for the much anticipated Bill Nesto & Di Savino wine dinner. Premoli, a native of Milan, Italy, has had a lifelong passion for food. His drive and attention to detail have gained him notoriety from Milan, Paris, and London to Miami, New York, and now Atlanta. Cooking has always been a family affair and at the age of fourteen, Piero began his formal culinary training at Milan’s Amerigo Vespucci.

After earning his degree, Piero worked as an apprentice throughout Europe, most notably at Tempiadoro in Milan and at L’Assemblee Nationale in Paris. Later he moved to Miami, first working as sous chef under Master Chef Antonio Tettamanzi at Osteria del Teatro. From there Piero traveled up the east coast with executive positions in Atlanta at Mezzaluna, in Atlantic City at the Trump Taj Mahal, and on to New York City at Café Fiorello’s. Upon his arrival back in Atlanta in 2001, Piero met restaurateur Pano Karatassos and accepted a position as a corporate consultant with the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group.

Piero assumed the helm at Buckhead Life Restaurant Group’s Pricci in May 2005. He takes great pride introducing his guests to the variety of cuisines throughout the eclectic regions of his home country, Italy.

Along the way, Piero and Pricci have received a number of accolades, to include:
