Chefs and pastry chefs

The cuisine at Il Pagliaccio is refined, unique and unambiguous.
There is enough creativity on the menu to last a lifetime.
A cuisine that embraces the world of the fusion of different flavours and aromas by Anthony Genovese and Francesco di Lorenzo, for years at his side.

At times, after the meal, everything can seem different, between the textural contrasts, mellow sweetness and plays on colour… small, sweet temptations…
