Agostino Sciandri, the popular Italian chef who brought the true flavor of Tuscany to Los Angeles, continues to endear himself to Angeleno foodies. His namesake restaurant, AGO, represents the culmination of Sciandri’s 45 years of experience in the restaurant industry and shows his lifelong passion for Northern Italian cuisine.
Born in the countryside of Tuscany, Sciandri initially decided to become a chef as a way to travel and see the world. After graduating from the School of Hotel and Catering in Bellaggio, he perfected his craft at some of London’s most renowned restaurants. He then returned to Italy for three years to teach at the Principe de Piedmonte School of Modern Italian Cuisine.
