Gennaro Battiloro is a force of nature. He shows the tattoos on his arms and says: «I like thrilling my guests, giving them goosepimples». He’s very emotional himself, he oozes passion, his pizzas being a blast of goodness.

Ever since he opened his first restaurant in February 2018, he’s been successful, serving up to 180 pizzas per day at Battil'oro in Querceta, a few kilometres from Forte dei Marmi. Gennaro was also at the helm of pizzeria La Kambusa in Massarosa for many years, and now seems even more determined to grow, and grow, and grow. For him, after all, this means fulfilling an old dream: «This has always been my secret dream, I was waiting for the right moment for it to come true».

Born in 1983 in Torre del Greco (Naples), Battilororose from the ranks. He inherited his style from Franco Pepe, with whom he worked in 2014 and 2015, when the pizzaiolo from Pepe in Grani worked in Milan withRocco Princi. He says, «I owe Francoa lot, thanks to him my technique has made an incredible leap». Before that, he acquired experience in Italy, Los Angeles, London and the Canaries. Then he arrived in Versilia, where he settled and found his success, so much so he deserved the Best chef pizzaiolo award from the Guida Identità Golose 2019.
