Chef Riccardo Bertazzoni of Di Vino by the Glass, Riviera Maya, MexicoThe restaurant has Italy well represented from the North to the South with owners Nicola Iorio of Naples, Riccardo Bertazzoni of Milan, Stefano Dal Ben of Venice, and Daniele Personali of Rome, whose culinary vision is one of style, taste, and presentation.

I had an excellent dinner at Di Vino by the Glass Bar while I was in Mexico in May 2008, and met with Chef Riccardo Bertazzoni to learn about the culinary concept behind the restaurant whose focus is on modern Italian cuisine from all parts of Italy like the owners themselves. Combined with the right mixture of tradition and elegance, Di Vino by the Glass Bar has all the right recipes. The restaurant opened in 2003 and has a tempting innovative menu and a large selection of wines. Chef Riccardo and Chef Stefano share their recipes for a tasty two-course menu.
