Pietro Scotti Bio
A fine artist in the kitchen, Chef Pietro Scotti has turned out culinary masterpieces at his acclaimed Westport restaurant, Da Pietro's, for close to 25 years. Born in Ischia, a remote fishing island on the Mediterranean, Scotti launched his culinary adventure at age 11, working in both the local fish market and a famed hotel kitchen. As a young apprentice, he accompanied chefs to the markets each day and learned to pick the freshest seasonal bounty. From there, he traveled the seven seas to exotic ports as a seaboard chef, sampling exotic cuisines, flavors and spices.
Pietro always harbored dreams of presiding over an elegant restaurant of his own. In 1987, he took a chance, opening Da Pietro's on a waterside street lined with antique shops in Westport. He decorated the restaurant's cozy, jewel-like dining room with plush banquets and framed Hermés scarves. Pietro's Italian and southern French fare quickly became the talk of the town.
