Bulgari proudly announces the opening of the Italian restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Luca Fantin, BVLGARI Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin, at the Bulgari Resort in Bali.
Guarding the same spirit of the most successful and award-winning Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin in Tokyo considered as the most sophisticated dining experiences in the city since 2009, the menu of the new BVLGARI Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin in Bali, pays homage to traditional Italian cuisine with local, organic ingredients, all paired with refined techniques and great creativity. Featuring a unique interpretation by its chef, the dishes are blended with a seductive ambience overlooking a reflection pool, enhanced with suggestive soft lighting.
Open for dinner only, the 36-seat restaurant features creative interpretations of classic Italian fare. Using the finest ingredients of the island’s local, organic produce – tuna, squid, baby pig, pumpkin, corn, lime kafir, mango and coconut, the menu includes a selection of Luca Fantin’s most famous dishes such as squid ink gnocchi with raw cuttlefish as well as cold spaghetti with caviar and wagyu beef eggplant. New creations redolent of the variety of colours and flavours offered by the generous richness of the isle of Bali include the tartare with avocado cream and smoked vegetable, Fassone Beef Tagliata Red garlic and grilled vegetables.
With more than six years experience at various Michelin-starred restaurants throughout Italy and Asia, the talented Fabrizio Crocetta is proud to carry on the Bulgari tradition, as he was named Resident Head Chef of BVLGARI Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin in Bali.
To complement, the restaurant offers a selection of over 200 wines, predominantly Italian labels, but also the finest selection of both new and old world wines – including an exclusive collection of champagnes.
The first Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin, launched in Tokyo in 2009, occupies the top four floors of the Bulgari Ginza Tower, which hosts the Bulgari flagship store in the Ginza luxury district. Michelin-starred Italian restaurant has become a synonym for distinctive style, offering world-class fine dining in Tokyo. In Bali, the new signature BVLGARI Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin will infuse new flair to the distinctive style of The Bulgari Resort Bali.
