Executive Chef Umberto Rubelli


Umberto Rubelli

Executive Chef | Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria

Having nearly 25 years of experience cooking fine Italian cuisine, chef Umberto Rubelli has made the art of food a huge part of his life. Rubelli received his education in Milan before moving into a sous chef position at the two Michelin starred Sadler Osteria di Porta Ciecca. He later accepted two subsequent head chef positions at one Michelin starred restaurants. Rubelli felt it was time to bring his tailored Italian style of cooking to the US, and took his first Executive Chef role at Brio Restaurant in Laguna Niguel. After leading the kitchen along the Newport coast, as well as a few years back in Italy, Rubelli joined the Patina Restaurant Group to bring his distinct cooking style at Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria.
