calls our chef Papà Luciano! First of all, because he likes
people and he wants to offer his cooking to the people. He wants
to please everybody, and to be friends with everybody. Having a
great deal of experience of more than 40 years, his cuisine is well-known
in Sydney, especially in the Eastern Suburbs, from Bondi Beach to
Darlinghurst and the City.
Luciano Capraro is originally from Latina, a famous
region in the centre of Italy. There, everybody cooks traditional
Italian food, for all Italian palates! Why? Because Latina is the
meeting point of the sophisticated Northern Italian cuisine and
the popular Southern Italian cuisine.
Our chef has had a lot of Australian experience
in cooking. Two decades ago, he founded trendy Il Puntino
on Sydney's famous Bondi Beach Promenade, where the chic clientele
enjoyed his mouthwatering Italian fare. Prosperous business allowed
him to open a second Il Puntino restaurant, this
time near the Sydney City area.
In 2000, Papà Luciano, coping with an increasing
base of customers, found it necessary to open a larger restaurant
with more tables, where he could cater for more and more people!
He found this place at 89 Crown St, Darlinghurst, and called it
Today, at Il Vicoletto, he combines
the skill and gastronomic knowledge of an experienced chef with
a large variety of dishes in the menu, a good range of drinks and
spirits, and, of course, great staff understanding and satisfying
the needs of everyone who craves a stylish Italian dining experience!
