Kevin DiLibero, Culinary Arts Director

For Chef Kevin DiLibero, crafting authentic Italian dining experiences comes naturally. He first learned to cook from his Italian mother by following family recipes. He was then mentored by Chef Raffaele Santrapaia, a native of Capri, while in school at the Florida Culinary Institute. He then went on to hone his skills at numerous restaurants, including an opening Executive Chef position at Pane e Vino in Federal Hill, Providence’s historic Italian neighborhood, before joining the Newport Restaurant Group.

Now Chef Kevin’s love for his craft resonates throughout every facet of Papa Razzi. His dedication has even led him to Los Angeles, where he earned a certificate in Neapolitan-style pizza making from VPN Americas. “The excitement for me is the simplicity and the ingredients. Italians live off the land, and that’s a beautiful way to live.” He implements this approach on and beyond the plate to create an all-inclusive experience for every Papa Razzi guest.

Our Wine Program

In Italy, no meal is complete without its beloved complement – wine.

We thoughtfully prepare our wine list to accompany our menus and enhance our guests’ experience. Selections include imports from the major Italian wine-producing regions and even a few California varietals. We build variety and value into our offerings, allowing all the opportunity to experiment with their selections.
