ALDO ESPOSITO, RESTAURATEUR

Aldo grew up in a large family who were well accustomed to the catering industry.  Running not only a small farm which produced fresh meat, olive oil and wine, but also a traditional restaurant and pizzeria which used the homegrown ingredients. He came to England in 1987 from Sorrento on the Amalfi coast where his expertise in hospitality then developed over 28 years as a restaurant manager in a family run hotel in East Sussex. It was always his dream to one day own his own restaurant and in 2015 his dream came true and La Bella Vista was born.
