About Me

Are Matteo Iovine, a professional in the food and beverage industry for over 15 years. Why am I here? … Maybe just want to share with you my skills gained around the world in the field. I am a benefactor? I think not, are only one that when he goes to a place to relax and have fun, really wants to find competent people to do his work and above all do feel good about the customer!
And ‘this is why I hope you’ll keep reading! I began this work in by accident, or perhaps out of necessity, but I decided to choose it for passion. Well, I introduce myself:

I was born in Italy in 1973 in Cava de ‘Tirreni where I live for several years in a scientific maturity and different jobs in sales, marketing and catering. In 2002 he moved to London, where I start my new path, oblivious to that to which I was going to meet. Here, including language courses and various removals of “room to room”, I got to learn with theoretical and practical training all the different roles that anticipate those of the barman. So while on the one hand I certificate my skills with master and specific courses, on the other hand I played at the same time the following roles: from commis to barback room, by the head barback the barman, then passing dall’aspirato role as head barman and bar manager, reaching the position of restaurant bar manager.

All these experiences in hotels and international companies from big names such as The Conran Company (British company), La Duree Boutique Restaurant (French company) in Harrod’s, the Royal Lancaster Hotel (Japanese company), have allowed me to reach milestones and successes important. After living in the multiethnic London for years and traveled to Europe, back in Italy, in Tuscany at the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte in Viareggio, world-class hotel.

Here starts a course of study, in the food and beverage industry. In 2008 I decided to return to my country of origin, where among the various proposals received, I accept that coming from the beautiful Positano, spearhead of the Amalfi Coast, and early so my collaboration with the ‘elegant and refined 5-star Hotel Villa Franca in the bar manager position. After about six years of collaboration and mutual respect with the property of I decide to relocate to the Sorrento coast and to accept the proposal of another beautiful 5 star:

The Grand Hotel Angiolieri, here in the position of restaurant-bar manager, still ongoing collaboration.

From Trip Advisor

Beautiful Setting For Romantic Getaway

This is a great location with easy access to Naples and Vesuvius in 1 direction, and Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast in the other.
It has fabulous views from the superior room we had, and from the balconies of both the bar and the Michelin starred restaurant (pictures attached).
The fantastic staff couldn't be more helpful, and worthy of particular mention are Armando the Front Desk Manager and Edda (also front desk) who welcomed us so warmly, Matteo who looked after us in the bar, and Giovanni the Maître d'/Sommelier who took amazing care of us... all the staff we met were great, but these were the names we went out of our way to learn.

Aperitivo mozzafiato

Gentilezza cortesia e ospitalità di Matteo impagabili. La costiera Sorrentina meritava strutture di primo ordine e persone professionali come queste. È da provare... Il posto è meraviglioso e le foto dicono solo una parte della bellezza.

In diverse occasioni, abbiamo apprezzato molto anche il "Club" menù del bar che ci ha permesso di simpatizzare con l'eccellente barman, Matteo Iovine.

Excellent base for sight seeing in quiet village

Beautiful Michelin stared restaurant, although we tended to eat in the bar due to the excellent service from Mateus. From Italian lessons, food and wine suggestions, to being a font of all tourist information, he was a star! Highly recommended.

Buongiorno Matteo

Great location and superb views, very helpful and friendly staff. Matteo at the bar was a star. Rooms clean but very small. Shuttle service very good. Recommend visit to Vico Equense the neighbouring town. Came back with rock hard calves after local walks and visits to Sorrento and Capri.

Buongiorno Matteo

Lontano dal turismo di massa, questa istituzione è una "meraviglia assoluta." Uno dei segreti di questo palazzo è la cordialità del personale. Da non perdere la sera per andare un liquore al bar, Matteo vi farà godere la felicità del momento.
