Aldo Zilli is an award-winning celebrity chef and restaurateur who specialises in Italian, vegetarian, and seafood cuisine. One of nine children, he was born in the small seaside town of Alba Adriatica in the central Italian region of Abruzzo and first learnt Italian home cooking from his mother before going on to catering college.
He is the founder and chef-patron of some of London’s most exciting and innovative restaurants including Signor Zilli, Zilli Green, Zilli Café and Zilli Bar. His Italian seafood restaurant, Zilli Fish, was a Soho institution and had been open for over 15 years until 2012 when Aldo decided to hang up the chef’s whites to focus on Zilli Media, a thriving, London-based PR and Marketing Consultancy for restaurants, bars, cafes, and all businesses related to the Food and Drink Industry.
Great food and Aldo’s bubbly personality means he gets to appear regularly on television and radio both as a presenter and chef. Aldo has authored many books and serves as consultant
