Massimo Fraioli, Managing Director of I Giardini di Sorrento said, “Winning these awards is a result of the hard work from our whole team and we thank all our customers that voted us to be in the finals for each category.
The restaurant should be rightly proud of its achievements and south Wales has a tradition of excellent Italian food. “It all began with a simple dream and a few great chefs, Gaetano Monteriso and Gianni Pane. To bring food that is home made and Truly Italian, inspired by the Sorrentine Peninsula and recipes handed down for generations by our families in Sorrento. Combined with a personal service, and an atmosphere that can transport you into the very heart of the Gardens of Sorrentom, or the busy Piazza Tasso.”
The restaurant has great plans for the future: “We are looking forward to continue to grow, and expand our offering and dedicate our awards to all our staff, suppliers and friends in a celebration of their hard work and commitment in the hospitality profession,” says Massimo.
