Alessandro Picottini

OWNER / MANAGER

By the time he was 9 years old, Alessandro, the only Italian on the team could identify the flags of every nation in the world and could also write his own field guide for the wild mushrooms of Northern Italy: two apparently random skills, one of which played a role in the initial success of Pinturicchio Café + Kitchen. He later graduated with a degree in Political Science and uses his diplomatic skills on a daily basis to welcome our international mix of customers.

OWNER / CHEF

In 2014, armed with his recipes and a suitcase full of brown sugar, Richard invaded Perugia with an irresistible range of creamy and delicious cupcakes, crunchy cookies, chocolate brownies and other sweets designed to tempt the sweet tooth of Italians and foreigners alike.

Never one to sit idle, he immediately set his sights on how to bring beloved American dishes (both sweet and savory) to his new hometown. Hence Pinturicchio Café + Kitchen was born, a collaboration between friends from three different countries that offers a constantly evolving menu of delicious home-style dishes, American cooking served with friendly hospitality to an international clientele.

RICHARD CORAZZA

OUR CHEF

From a young age, Richard Corazza, the tenth of fourteen children, loved to cook. One of his earliest memories of food was of pan-frying bologna over a backyard fire when he was just a boy. The pan turned black but the meat, with all its savory, smoky and caramelized flavors, was sizzled to perfection. Since then he has accumulated decades of experience cooking delicious foods that make friends, family and customers happy, and he’s has had more than a little fun doing it.

After 30 years working at UPS, Richard decided to make cooking his career. He fine-tuned his skills at the French Culinary Institute, then worked in the famous New York kitchens of City Field, Maialino and Blue Smoke / Jazz Standard, restaurants that are well known for outstanding food and exceptional hospitality. Training with the acclaimed pastry chef Jennifer Giblin, he learned how to perfect classic, American desserts using all-natural, fresh and seasonal ingredients.
