Domenico De Gregorio

Ristorante Lo Stuzzichino
Via Deserto 1, Massa Lubrense (Naples)

Domenico De Gregorio’s restaurant is close to the Sorrento coast. The business was initially opened in 1989 as a rosticceria, run together with his father Paolo, who still works in the kitchen. The cooking is closely linked to the local area and many of the ingredients are either Slow Food Presidia or in the Ark of Taste.
