Luciano Cibelli

Meet Chef Luciano Cibelli

As a young boy in Milano, Chef Luciano Cibelli’s early life was infused with a passion and respect for cooking. After perfecting his family’s traditional Italian techniques, he set off to broaden his horizons in Koln Germany at the prestigious La Vita restaurant when he was 27. There, Luciano was introduced to chefs of both German and Indian descent, and together they began to discuss the art of cooking, and began fusing their three cultures together to form new and exciting cuisines.

Having learned many of the prominent European cooking styles, Luciano increased his knowledge by traveling to Thailand, Spain, the Caribbean, and eventually came to the United States. He worked as a head chef in New York’s Four Cats Italian restaurant and Nick and Maggie’s steakhouse. Through his experiences, Luciano discovered that cooking is not about mastering a specific style, but instead, it’s about “respecting” the integrity of the finest ingredients, finding their correct combinations and finding ways to prepare them without compromising their intended flavor.

While retaining the essence of traditional Italian cuisine, Luciano integrated aspects of other cooking techniques, and helped to launch San Diego’s prestigious Max Restaurant, developing a continental fusion style of cooking.

Luciano’s cuisine has made an indelible mark on the city’s restaurant scene, and is widely recognized as the BEST Italian food in San Diego.
