Subraaz Abdullah

Executive Chef

Meet our Executive Chef (& part owner), Subraaz Abdullah: Husband, father to a baby boy named Sky, lover of Italian food, passionate about cooking with fresh, high quality and local ingredients.

Subraaz has 15+ years of professional experience in the industry but he’s been cooking since he was in his teens, after being inspired by his parents.

Opening Piva Modern Italian is his lifelong dream come true.

His favourite part of cooking is seeing a smile on someone’s face once they’ve had a bite of his food and he hopes to see a smile on your face sometime soon.
