Matteo Metullio

Matteo Metullio was born in Trieste on March 3rd, 1989. At the age of only 12 he already knew what his way would be and he signed in the Hospitality Training School in Falcade -BL ( I.P.S.S.A.R.).

During the school years, in the summer time, he made his first experiences in various hotels and restaurants in Italy. When he finished his studies he made his decisive work experience at the restaurant “Alle Codole” in Canale d’Agordo (BL); here he met Oscar Tibolla, a man of great personality as well as a great Chef. “He taught me the respect for raw materials, never giving up if I really believe in my aim”.

Hereafter he received the unexpected call from Chef Norbert Niederkofler. In summer he started at the St. Hubertus, Hotel Rosa Alpina, owned by Pizzinini Family. He worked here for four years, apart from a small six-month experience in the Sirmione restaurant “La Speranzina”.

In the winter season 2012/13 he started as Sous Chef at the restaurant La Siriola (1 Michelin star), Hotel Ciasa Salares, owned by Wieser family. In spring 2013 he was offered to guide the Michelin starred kitchen. Mrs. Wilma Wieser and her husband Stefan put great trust in this big guy. Matteo accepted with great honor this challenge, supported by his family, his girlfriend and his Sous Chef Davide De Pra.

Matteo became an important point of reference for the Hotel Ciasa Salares, and a precious collaborator in the organization of the winter Chef's Cup, right from the start.

The first fundamental result came with the confirmation of the Michelin star 2013/14, awarding Matteo also as the youngest Michelin starred Chef in Italy and Italian Chef next Generation spokesperson in Berlin 2013.

After this first very important result, he did not wait to put himself on a line again, and together with his Sous Chef, Davide De Pra, he won the contest for emerging chefs in northern Italy "Chef Emergente Nord" first; and then the National contest "Chef Emergente Italia" 2014, in Rome.

Furthermore, in autumn 2014, he and his staff went to Asia and, in collaboration with San Pellegrino Fine Dining Lovers, he proposed some exclusive gourmet dinners at the restaurant Enoteca Italiana in Bangkok and at three different Intercontinental Hotels in Vietnam.

His desire to improve is leading Chef Matteo, his brigade and the restaurant La Siriola to achieve more and more important recognitions.

In 2017 the Gambero Rosso guide confirmed the 3 "forchette" gained in 2016, with 92 point; Gault et Millau assigned 17 points (in 2016 this guide awarded Matteo as emerging chef of the year).

On 16th November, at Teatro Regio in Parma, the prestigious Michelin Guide honored Chef Matteo and restaurant La Siriola with the important 2 Stars.
