Alessandro (Alex) was born in Monselice, Italy near Venice. He studied restaurant arts when he was young and then ventured out to Switzerland and England where he learned English and worked in some of the finest restaurants in Europe. This formal training served as a solid foundation for his knowledge of proper table service, fine wines and fine dining. Ultimately Alex embarked on the Princess Cruise Lines and sailed around the world. While on-board the ship, he met his future wife (Julie) from Colorado, who has been his wife for 32 years. They have daughter named Alessia who is almost 18.
Alex has brought his experience and talent to several country clubs including Pinehurst Country Club from 1992 to 2003. He is passionate about fine foods, wines and outstanding service. He has had the opportunity to develop “Gourmet Dining with Alex” along the way. Alex has now returned to Pinehurst Country Club as a Dining Room Manager and is thrilled to be back!
