Fabio Pisani grew up in Molfetta, Italy, while Alessandro Negrini was born in Caspoggio, Italy. Both graduated from school at the same time. Both went to culinary school. Both made their way through various restaurants.

Pisani enjoyed working at three-starred restaurants such as Grand Vefoir in Paris and Waterside Inn in London. Negrini began at Hotel Palace in Saint Moritz along with Domaine de Cahteauvieux in Geneva. They met working at Dal Pescatore in Italy and became fast friends who were excited about the creations they concocted together.

When Negrini discovered a former restaurant, Il Luogo di Aimo e Nadia, was for sale, he and Pisani jumped at the chance to take over. They reopened their completely renovated restaurant with a new menu in 2018 — and earned two Michelin stars for their efforts.
