Il Luogo / Our story

Our story

Aimo and Nadia Moroni, partners in life and at work, open their restaurant on Via Montecuccoli in 1962.
It’s a simple trattoria, offering a regional cuisine from their motherland, Tuscany, mastering its history, tradition, products and employing many of its raw materials.

Those years are spent working hard, looking for a personal way of enhancing the rich national gastronomic heritage, distant from the French approach to haute cuisine.

1970s and 1980s

It’s the end of the Seventies when the press, along with the rising Italian gastronomic review, discovers this simple diner that, according to them, “has made a culinary revolution”: excellent ingredients, deep respect for original flavors, a cuisine that focuses on the savory goodness of food –valuing its quality expressed with its history, geographical origin, wisdom and care for the production process – and experimenting with new dishes and pairings.

During the Eighties, their cuisine style refines itself and the restaurant is renewed several times, and the first acknowledgments from the press arrive.

1990s and the the New Millennium

During the Nineties, Stefania joins the family business to spread the knowledge of their cuisine in Italy and abroad. Aimo and Nadia are internationally recognized as the couple that has been able to interpret and recreate with an innovative approach the rich Italian gastronomic culture.

The New Millennium opens in the spirit of passing the baton thanks to young and motivated professionals that start working in the kitchen, becoming through the years the strong foundation to build the present and the future of the historical location. Fabio Pisani and Alessandro Negrini in the kitchen, Nicola Dell’Agnolo on the floor and Alberto Piras, sommelier, along with Stefania, are today’s heart and soul of Il Luogo di Aimo e Nadia.
