About our Chef

Chef Ambrosini

Chef Ambrosini's culinary journey was inspired mainly by her roots and the love of food for as long as she can remember. Having the privilege of being a part of one of Rome's most well-known, and respected Pasticceria's Pasticceria Alfiero.


Alfiero was known all over Rome for the level of quality and the delectable taste of his pastries.

Chef Ambrosini was given the opportunity to study the science of baking and pastries from none other than her father-in-law himself. She was then, married to a Chef with limitless talents in the kitchen, for over 20 years, this was the core of where she learned the true art of the Italian cuisine, focusing on traditional, rustic, Roman dishes. This inspired her to begin her culinary career when she moved to Melbourne, Australia. Her aim with every plate she serves, is for each customer to be able to experience Italy and all of its regions, in every single bite.


This is truly a rarity and a gift she possesses, as she lives, eats and breathes her passion, her dedication to her work is the only reason we are able to call ourselves Italy & Co.
