Restaurant Capofaro

Chef Ludovico De Vivo


Island of Salina (ME)

The Capofaro restaurant, a member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux association, reveals the heart of Sicilian aromas and flavors with a balance of tradition and innovation. Ludovico De Vivo is the interpreter of the Tasca d’Almerita family’s passion for good, ethical food in the kitchen. Capofaro takes full advantage of an ecosystem where wine forms the base of the menu and dishes dialogue with Tasca’s various labels and estates; a scintillating culmination of the sun, the sea and the volcanic land of Salina.

Ludovico De VivoExecutive Chef
Through his dishes, Ludovico De Vivo tells the story of the volcanic earth and the seas of Salina. An inspired chef from Southern Italy, De Vivo dedicates time and attention to curating the fertile gardens around Capofaro Locanda & Malvasia, giving way to a menu that is decidedly ethical and clean, marked with flavors from the gastronomic traditions of the Tasca d’Almerita family and the ever-present touch from the Aeolian islands. Originally from the Campania region, his cooking on the island of Salina is an delightful interpretation of Sicilian cuisine. Though ageless with energy, De Vivo has several important international experiences at his back, from Spain to England, with an impressive and decisive stint at Noma in Copenhagen.
