Chef Antonio Carluccio, known as the “Godfather of Italian Cooking,” has passed away, according to his agent.

Antonio Carluccio, the celebrity chef and restaurateur known as the “Godfather of Italian Cooking,” has passed away at 80 years old. The Italian chef is most known for his U.K.-based restaurant chain Carluccio’s — which has expanded to over 80 locations, including some in the Middle East, since its opening in 1999 — as well as for his 22 cookbooks and for his BBC shows Food and Drink Programme, Antonio Carluccio’s Italian Feasts, and Two Greedy Italians.

The London-based chef had originally moved to the U.K. to work as a wine merchant but soon found himself in the kitchen of Terence Conran — a noted design maven and the most influential London restaurateur of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, whose sister Carluccio ended up marrying — in his Neal Street Restaurant in London. Carluccio subsequently became the manager and, eventually, the owner of the restaurant.

During his time at Neal Street, he helped celebrity chef Jamie Oliver start his professional career. Oliver shared a photo and some touching words on his Instagram upon hearing the news of Carluccio’s passing.

“He was my first London Boss at the Neal Street restaurant 25 years ago which was an institution and Mecca of wild mushrooms where I had the pleasure of working for him,” Oliver wrote. “He was such a charismatic charming don of all things Italian!!”

The chef was given the honor of Commendatore dell’Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana by the Italian government for his contributions to the Italian food industry, and an OBE from the Queen of England in 2007 for his services to the catering industry.


The 'Godfather of Italian cooking' Antonio Carluccio dies age 80

The food world is in mourning after the death of Italian chef and founder of the Carluccio restaurant chain, Antonio Carluccio, at age 80.

News of the beloved TV chef's passing on the morning of November 8, 2017, was announced via the chef's website .

"It is with great sadness that we announce Commendatore Antonio Carluccio OBE sadly passed away this morning," the statement read.

"Commendatore Antonio Carluccio was an OBE, OMRI and a much loved and respected Italian cookery writer, cook, restaurateur, food expert and loved TV personality, he was regarded as the Godfather of Italian cooking. Raised in the rural North West of Italy, Antonio had a rare and privileged breadth of culinary knowledge."

It has been reported that Carluccio died from a fall in his home in London.

The charismatic cook had a career spanning more than 50 years, but was perhaps best known for his BBC series Two Greedy Italians , which he starred in alongside fellow chef Gennaro Contaldo.

The chef opened Neal Street Restaurant in Covent Garden, London in 1981, which famously launched the career of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.

The Naked Chef paid tribute to his "first London boss" this morning in an Instagram post.

"He was such a charismatic charming don of all things Italian!! Always hanging out the front door of the restaurant with a big fat Cigar a glass of something splendid and his amazing fuzzy white hair [sic].

"The image here is from his great cook book that first got me hooked on Pasta which I found so very inspirational and drove me to work for him."

In 1998, Carluccio was awarded the Commendatore OMRI by the Italian Government for services to Italian gastronomy, the Italian equivalent of a British knighthood.

His adoptive country, England, also presented him with an Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to the catering industry.

Carluccio founded his namesake restaurant chain in 1999, Carluccio's , which has gone on to become one of the UK's most successful and well-known brands.

Tributes from prominent members of the food community continue to pour in following news of his death, from Nigella Lawson to Lorraine Pascale.
