Andrea Capoccia - Chef Extraordinaire


Born in the town of Squinzano (Southern Italy), Andrea is a uniquely multi-faceted personality.


With a natural hunger for traveling, adventure and discovering new culinary horizons, he brings with him a diverse working experience ranging from places like Marilleva (ski resort in the Italian Alps) to Athens, Scotland, Sydney, London (UK), Munich and Dubai.


In the past he has represented names like Sheraton Hotels, Starwood, The Westin, Brenner and JW Marriott Hotel.


Red Tomato Pizza Restaurant consequently decided to make use of Andrea's experience and knowledge in the formation and implementation of the kitchen and menu, ultimately developing the finest traditional Italian cuisine in this region with a inimitable taste. With numerous awards and accolades under his belt, his adventurous streak is always a source of new innovations in the kitchen.


If culinary art is his love then motor sports is a passion for Chef Capoccia! He has been competing in the UAE Sportbike Championship for the past 2 years and has maintained a leading position.


Red Tomato Pizza Restaurant was the proud sponsor behind his latest success in the UAE Sportbike Championship 09/10 held at the Dubai Autodrome.


With sheer determination Andrea maintains his position in the top three finishers!


Despite being a passionate hobbyist as far as bikes go, it is appropriate to consider him an authority on motor sports!
