Sous Chef
Luca DeMarinis Born and raised in Ottawa, Luca began his culinary career upon graduating from the culinary arts program at Algonquin College. He joined the former Bin 790 location as a line cook and as his skills continued to develop, he was quickly promoted to sous chef at Aperitivo. Luca works quickly and deftly with a calm, quiet demeanour regardless of the chaos that surrounds him in the kitchen.
Erica Fillipoff Erica was an integral part of opening Aperitivo as her knowledge of the business was unparalleled due to her previous role of running the entire show at the former Bin 790 restaurant. Erica's skills are too many to mention, but among them are her extensive knowledge of wines and spirits that has crafted out our offerings, and her ability to recognize the key people to join the staff and blend in perfectly with our family at Aperitivo.
Head Chef
Steven MacDonald Originally from Vancouver, BC, Steven has called Ottawa home since 2004 with his wife Leah. Steven has always been drawn to the arts and expresses his artistic side through two of his passions: photography and cooking. His passion for food has been influenced greatly by his mother's delicious Jamaican cooking and years of traveling the globe. Steve brings to Aperitivo inspirations from his travels to Australia, Europe, the Middle East and, of course, throughout Canada. Steven has embraced the challenge of developing a creative and delicious menu that can be fully enjoyed by those with or without a gluten allergy.
