Fabio Santilli was born in 1978 in Isernia, a small town of Molise bound to traditions but, as the maître himself states, where tourism is almost absent.
The work led him to Viareggio, where he still lives and works professionally as a maître at the Michelin two-star restaurant “Il Piccolo Principe”.
Viareggio is the destination of a long career that has brought our Fabio around Italy and beyond.
The fact of coming from a family of small artisan entrepreneurs, operating in the world of services, has given him the attitude of work, dedication, professionalism and sacrifice since his early years.
Fabio Santilli’s career path is rich and structured: he goes through the experiences at the “Gallo Cedrone” Restaurant, one of the most important in the Dolomites; the “Caino” Restaurant, of which it preserves the advice of Valeria Piccini and Maurizio Menichetti; the two years spent in Switzerland managing the catering of a hotel that, in the summer time, was enriched with a “itinerant” starred restaurant; the experience at the Castello di Spaltenna in Chianti.
A very rich work experience that just this year reaches 25 years because Fabio’s career in the restaurant world begins very early, at only 15 years old.
In love with his work at the “Piccolo Principe”, he begins every day with a real ritual: he awaits the arrival of the starred chef Giuseppe Mancino to have a coffee together.
Three minutes during which they chat about non-job related issues, this shows the harmony of the staff members and starts a new working day.
He defines his work as a set of actions through which to organize the work and style of the “Il Piccolo Principe”, to tell the guests the philosophy of the restaurant, to convey the passion that every member of the staff brings into play, make the guest feel at home.
Without forgetting the important management of the well-stocked cellar, carried out with the help of the restaurant sommelier.
