Chef Livio Ferigo was born in a small village in Northern Italy where his first lessons in the kitchen came as a young understudy, helping his mother cook meals for the family table. His passion for culinary arts was insatiable, and at just 11 years of age, he began training at the side of a hotel chef in Cortina d’Ampezzo. In 1994, Livio moved to Bermuda, and just 5 years later became the owner of his first restaurant. He now owns and operates three of Bermuda’s favorite establishments, Bone Fish Bar & Grill and Cafe Amici, both located in Dockyard, and Bella Vista Bar & Grill at Port Royal Golf Course.
“I always chose to work in an environment of very high standards, alongside respected head chefs,” he says. Going on to train at some of Italy’s most prestigious restaurants, it became more and more clear: “Being the best chef means your heart is in the work of your hands.”
