Stefano Ongaro, chef Roberto Franzoni and Sophie Gayot

by Sophie Gayot

What happens when two Venetians meet in the kitchen? They cook Venetian specialties. All’ Angelo owner Stefano Ongaro (who has a gorgeous picture of his hometown on his computer background screen) is in heaven since chef Roberto Franzoni has been cooking for him. Listen to the two of them: they are not even speaking Italian, but the dialect from La Serenissima. For years Franzoni was the chef at the legendary Cipriani in Venice, then in New York.

No, I will not reveal the pasta recipe the three of us prepared—the pair refused to write it down for me. It is a longtime family secret. But I can tell you one thing: the only way to know more about this incredible dish is to go to All’ Angelo and discover the beauty of it for yourself!
