Italian born Chef Claudio Barchieri, has made his ultimate dream come true by opening his first independent Cafe in the area of Bushey - Hertfordshire.

"Four years ago, I moved to the area of Bushey with my family and fell in love with this small town, so much, that I decided to give up my  Executive Chef job in London with the Taverna Etrusca Restaurants  to open Buono Italian Cafe, right in the heart of Bushey Heath".


Chef Claudio Barchieri trained in Milan before coming to London. His culinary expertise is remarkable, and one that has strengthened through 35 years of experience working at well known establishments in London and abroad:


Executive chef at the former No.5 Ltd in Cavendish Square,  Chef Consultant at Gilgamesh in Camden Town,  Head Chef at San Carlo Restaurant in Highgate, also at Montpeliano Restaurant in Knightsbrige, built an international career working at the Caracas Hilton in South America and for the prestigious Pacific Cruises amongst others.

In the past, Claudio's work has been featured in the popular BBC Hit show "Celebrity Master Chef", as well as on several printed magazines such as OK and Tattler.


"I am giving my all! and what makes it even more rewarding is the warm welcome we have received from the Bushey Heath community who have been behind the scenes encouraging me step by step prior the opening of the cafe" says Claudio


Buono Italian has opened its doors on May 9th, 2016. Customers can expect a selection of delicious Italian dishes with the inclusion of popular English favourites in a very relaxed environment, informal, friendly and full of Italian flare.
