Ruggero Gadaldi is the chef/co-partner of Beretta and Delarosa. His passion for preparing only the most authentic Italian cuisine lead him to study at Italy’s prestigious San Pellegrino Hotel School. From there, he made his way to the US via a number of positions at five-star hotels throughout Europe, New York, and finally San Francisco, with a stop in Los Angeles to cook for Pope John Paul II. In 2008, he received the San Francisco Chronicle Visionary Chef Award.
