Giuseppe Ricchebuono

The Chef

Born in a small town in the hinterland of Savona, not far from the sea, I grew up in my parents’ grocery shop. My mother always said to use only a few ingredients, but make sure they were all top quality, while my father was a simple man with very good taste


The local area

I find everything I need in the area where I live.

Starting with my raw materials, which I either pick myself from the gardens and along the paths where I stroll with my cocker spaniel, Pepita, or purchase from suppliers I have sought out and selected myself according to my own strict criteria, exclusively offering locally sourced products.

The Ricchebuono family

Years of hard work and sacrifices have been amply repaid by the presence on my team of my wife Alessia and my daughter Martina.

In charge of reception and service, Alessia welcomes diners warmly and serves them attentively to make sure every single guest enjoys their meal.
Our servers share the same goal, with a smile and all the courtesy that is essential at even the most critical times.

Martina is passionate about the search for wines.


Ristorante Vescovado

My wife, my daughter and I and the Ravera family have operated Ristorante Vescovado in the fifteenth-century halls of the former Bishop’s Palace in Noli (Savona) since 2009.

In the summer we move out of the palace’s frescoed halls overlooking the bay of Noli and onto the magnificent building’s patios over the sea.

A place where history and nature come together in a timeless work of art.


Ristorante Nazionale

Born in 1916, in 1950 Restaurant Nazionale goes to the Fontana family and has stayed within that family since then. In 1966 the young daughter Stefania takes over with her husband Pierantonio Bozzo, at the helm of the restaurant kitchen until the recent decision to pass the baton to chef Giuse Ricchebuono.

“Ristorante Nazionale in Noli since 1916”, with its 100 years of history, traditions and skills, will stand as a meeting point between the past ad the future, with the quality and the style signed by the Ricchebuono family.
