Chef Profile and Biography

Chef Marco Boscaini’s culinary experience reads like a love letter to Italian cuisine. Having completed his culinary training at the Instituto Giovanni Pastore in Varallo Sesia of Northern Italy back in 1983, he spent over 20 years perfecting his trade, starting in an apprenticeship position and then moving all the way up to being Head Chef and Owner of his very own establishment – Il Campetto.

In 2003, back when Koh Samui was still underdeveloped and relatively out of touch in terms of what was on offer on the booming mainland. Chef Marco introduced visitors and locals to Prego, offering patrons an upscale dining experience, offering a quality menu composed of Italian creations from his recipe book, using the very finest imported ingredients brought from in and around his homeland.

Now, this Italian restaurant stands as one of the island’s staples for its consistency and superior service, earning it a rave reputation and many regular visitors! This is thanks in no short order to Chef Marco’s dedication to ensuring his diners’ experience – from start to finish – is nothing short of fantastic!
