In 2011, he assumed the helm at Le Trabe Restaurant in Capaccio-Paestum, a pivotal moment in his career where he was awarded his first Michelin star.

His attention to detail is nearly obsessive, a characteristic that elevates his creations to culinary artistry.

Sustainability is a cornerstone of Stanzione’s culinary ethos. He is deeply committed to responsible environmental practices, meticulously managing resources, and minimizing waste. His objective is clear: to create dishes that communicate directly with the palate, offering clean, recognizable, and natural flavors.
