The Culinary Journey: Raffaele Fusco - Owner & Executive Chef of Ristorante Positano

The culinary journey of Ristorante Positano is closely tied to the passion and expertise of our owner and executive chef, Raffaele Fusco.


Raffaele was born in Naples in 1992, a city of passion, art, and good food. Raised with his grandparents, who were master bakers, a profound passion and love for cooking and Italian cuisine were instilled in him from an early age.


Upon his arrival in Zurich, Raffaele sought to leave a mark rooted in the disappearing traditions, partly due to the trend of molecular and foam cuisine, and partly because it takes dedication to cook traditional Southern Italian recipes. This requires passion and hard work.


After nine years, Ristorante Positano is now passed on to Raffaele Fusco, who can bring his years of experience and passion for Italian cuisine. Using high-quality ingredients and traditional recipes, Ristorante Positano creates taste experiences you won't easily forget. A sense of "craftsmanship" is underscored by the consistency of bronze-drawn pasta and pizza. The pizza dough, made only from water and flour, is naturally fermented for at least 72 hours before serving. This results in excellent digestibility and the unmistakable taste of authentic Neapolitan pizza. Carefully selected wines are also offered, perfectly complementing the dishes.
