From the bright lights of Milan to the small, charming, streets of Galway, Simone has delighted the palates of food lovers wherever he has crafted his dishes.
This chef moved to Galway from his hometown of Tuscania, a small walled town steeped in history in the Lazio region of Italy, and says he fell in love with the city. "It was the multi-ethnic and multicultural feel to Galway with which I fell in love.”
Simone's interest in making food began early. He remembers as a six-year-old he would make his own pizzas from scratch, and this early love turned into a lifelong vocation which has seen him work as a chef for some of the most prestigious five star hotels in Rome and Milan and a number of Italian restaurants in Galway.
In 2017, Simone opened the doors to Osteria Italiana Da Simone and it is a must visit for anyone who is in search of authentic Italian cuisine. Serving all his favourite Italian meals, Simone aims to provide dishes that are big on taste but small on price.
"A number of the main dishes start from as little as €10. We have pasta dishes, pizzas, steak, salads, chicken dishes, lunch and dinner specials, so there is something for everyone. And for that something sweet we have homemade Italian desserts."
Located at 3 St Francis Street and accommodating large bookings, the restaurant is the perfect setting to spend an evening in Galway, and with a team that is all Italian it offers an authentic slice of Italy in the city.
