Beppe De Vito

In an era dominated by the figures of chef celebrities, Beppe De Vito has been and still is one of the most brilliant, young interpreters of another role fundamental for the success of a contemporary Italian restaurant tuned to fine dining outside Italy; the manager-owner, a role rooted in restaurants of the past. Beppe’s career has been woven from the standard of the glorification of quality and of elegance. First in the context of Italian restaurants of large hotels such as the Bice of Singapore, where he left clear imprint of class, then on to the Garibaldi and then finally to the opening of the truly elegant Lido on Sentosa Island, Singapore. Together with the Forlino, another establishment under his control, these two restaurants have contributed to changing the history of Italian cuisine, not to mention the acquisition of the finest of Italian style in Singapore and in Asia.
