Mambo Italia

Visit & training by Roberto Caporuscio...

November 2014

 Mambo Italia was visited by Roberto Caporuscio…

Roberto Caporuscio was born and raised on a dairy farm in Pontinia, Italy, an hour outside of Naples, where he first developed his culinary skills producing and selling cheese.

However, it was in Naples, where Roberto went to study the art and craft of Neapolitan pizza-making, with the most talented pizza masters, including Antonio Starita.

After training, Roberto came to the United States opened several successful pizzerias, and ultimately settled in New York City in 2009 and established Kesté Pizza and Vino on Bleecker Street.

In February 2012, Roberto collaborated with his mentor, Antonio Starita, and opened Don Antonio by Starita, in Midtown, Manhattan.

Each endeavor brought critical acclaim from the culinary industry, and Roberto has become one of the most highly praised pizza chefs among his peers, and the subject of rave reviews in the media.
