When Italians move abroad, they hold tight to family bonds. Michele Farnesi, for example, dedicated his Parisian restaurant 'Dilia' to his grandparents, while young Denny Imbroisi named his restaurant after his older sister Ida. Born in Calabria, Imbroisi grew up in Mantua and moved to France at 18. He is a well-known face in his adopted country, thanks both to his participation in the television show 'Top Chef' when he was 24, and his experiences at Alain Ducasse’s Eiffel Tower restaurant and other restaurants along with renowned chefs. Pasta is his ingredient par excellence, to which he dedicates an entire contemporary menu, from start to finish. There’s always pasta, including the most traditional ones such as carbonara served with a raw egg yolk on top.
