The culture here is one of tranquility, quiet, a family place yet very important families
live here. All the Capos of the Venetian Restaurants, Hotels, Couture live on Lido. And of course we have the beach. The tourists don't know about the beach and we keep asking Venecia to give publicity to the gorgeous beach we have on Lido. If the tourists knew they would hop on a waterbus and take the lovely ride from Venecia and stay on the beaches all day. We have a great golf course too. The 1st beach ever in Italy, the bathing beach, is here in Lido in 1800." says Claudio.

Does he miss being the Head Chef? Claudio says, "O sometimes yet now I love being the Big Boss. All the recipes are mine since 2006. I hired 6 chefs in the kitchen and I work with these talented people everyday. I supervise the food and the kitchen and run back and forth; I think that it is important and very good to have that experience as a Head Chef. I know what the food should taste like and I know how it should be presented. I like to eat food, you understand, yet I want my guests to LOVE to eat food!" he says laughing.
"When the Italian people come here everyday it is because I make the people and my team makes the people feel as if they are in their home. That is the feeling I want for my ristorante." he says.
How about the baby here? It feeds 10 people!
