David A. Lenio, Executive Chef

It gives us great pleasure to welcome Executive Chef David Lenio back to Vasari.

Chef David was instrumental with the opening of Vasari in 2003. As part of the development team, he was responsible for setting up all systems and processes in the kitchen, as well as forming the initial personnel team and establishing vendor accounts and connections. Those of you who have been with Vasari since its beginning days will probably remember David. For over 25 years, Chef David has been making a strong impact on the culinary scene of Southwest Florida.

Prior to his initial stint with Vasari, David did his formative work with the Ritz-Carlton, Quail Creek Country Club, Tarpon Cove Yacht and Racquet Club, and The Club at the Strand.

Since the Vasari turnover, David was the Executive Chef at Kensington Country Club and Forest Glen Golf and Country Club.

David is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Institute of Culinary Arts (Pittsburgh) and is a past recipient of the A.C.F. Chef of the Year Award.

David resides in North Naples with his wife and three children. Please welcome back Chef David to the Vasari Team.
