The Chef

At the heart of Locanda da Toto, creativity and culinary mastery come to life in the hands of our acclaimed chef, Antonio 'Toto' Fratea. With a career that has crossed the seas on the ships of Società Italia and touched the peaks of international haute cuisine, Chef Toto brings a wealth of unique and valuable experience to our inn.

His cuisine is a tribute to the richness of the Mediterranean, a perfect blend of the intense flavours of his native Calabria and the sophisticated elegance of the international dishes he has mastered during his years at sea. Every dish that comes out of Chef Toto's kitchen is a work of art, a perfect balance of taste, presentation and innovation.

Chef Toto is an artist of taste, passionately dedicated to surprising and delighting our guests. Away from the limelight, he prefers to speak through his culinary creations, offering our guests a gastronomic experience that speaks directly to the heart and palate.

Whether he is exploring new techniques or perfecting a classic, Chef Toto's commitment is to ensure that every visit to Locanda da Toto is an unforgettable journey into the world of flavours. We invite you to discover his art, to immerse yourself in his passion for cooking, and to be transported on a culinary adventure that only a master like him can offer.

Toto's Kitchen: A Stage of Authentic Flavours

Here, every ingredient is carefully selected, giving priority to freshness, provenance and seasonality. Fish, the undisputed protagonist of our dishes, is treated with respect, keeping intact the aromas and lightness that only the sea can offer. It is a sensory journey that begins with the sense of smell and is completed in taste, where the raw material tells the story of its origins.

Mediterraneanity and Simplicity: The Pillars of Our Cuisine

Our culinary philosophy places raw materials at the centre of everything. We believe that the true essence of a dish lies in its ability to enhance natural flavours, without superimposition or artifice. Chef Toto, with his mastery and genuine love of cooking, embodies these values in every creation. It is a cuisine that speaks of land, sea, sun and passion.
