In 2020 he embarks on a new adventure taking on the lead of the restaurant Pietramare Natural Food, of Praia Art Resort at Isola di Capo Rizzuto, conquering one Star of the MICHELIN Guide Italy in 2022. Nicola develops an interest towards ethnobotany, focusing on local tradition and mixing it all with the regional cuisine of Campania, gaining the trust of major gastronomic guides.

His philosophy is to propose a cuisine that is highly curated, yet lightsimple in its concept, using only little ingredients that are freshgenuine and carefully selected, respecting the seasonality. He plans to carry out this vision with great passion and dedication throughout his journey at Ristorante I Portici of the I Portici Hotel 4*S in Bologna.
