Francesco Sposito Chef
Chef Sposito found his passion at the tender age of 15 while working alongside his father in their kitchen.
Upon completing a classical education at University, he realized his calling and returned to work in his family’s restaurant while experimenting with various cooking techniques, to include cryogenic cooking.
Chef’s curiosity continued to drive him further afield and led him to work in the kitchens of some large Italian and French restaurants outside of Campania in order to hone his craft.
After training outside of his family’s restaurant for a few years, Chef assumed responsibility for the kitchen in 2005, and the modern Taverna d’Estia was born. The kitchen was completely modernized and became his laboratory, using local ingredients and history to transform his ideas into reality.
