Since the days of cooking for Elvis Presley in 1977 to the most recent dinner prepared for Pope Francis at the Vatican in Rome, Chef Walter’s career has been fulfilled with enormous achievements and respectability.
Internationally recognized as one of the top 30 Italian Chefs in the world, Walter continues his mission in the promotion, protection and diffusion of LA VERA CUCINA ITALIANA. His first restaurant Walters opened in East Greenwich in 1985, and since many new concepts have been offered to Rhode Island, including the latest homonymous Potenza Ristorante and the first proprietary Italian Cooking School in the State. Lately the chef is concentrating in the scientific education of diabetes and Celiac cooking to children and adults, including teaching in Dubai, Beijing and Italy.
