Our Chefs

Under the guidance and mentorship of Executive Chef Gino Marchetti a new format for the reimagined and resurgent Ristorante Boccaccio is now in place.  Ristorante Boccaccio embodies a synergy combing youthful exuberance, experience, education and knowledge to bring our authentic, Italian cooking to our guests.

Executive Chef Gino Marchetti was classically trained at Italy’s world-renowned Villa Santa Maria Abruzzo’s culinary school, where he sharpened his world-class culinary skills in restaurants throughout Europe and North America.

Since settling down at the Columbus Centre more than 28 years ago, he has continually updated his menu for Ristorante Boccaccio and Columbus Events Centre to highlight each season’s freshest ingredients. Marchetti also channels his Italian heritage into the restaurant’s popular theme nights, which spotlight a particular Italian region and its cuisine.
