Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin

Opened in 2017, Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin at the Bvlgari Resort Bali is an intimate 36-seat restaurant that serves creative interpretations of classic Italian cuisine blended with local, organic ingredients all paired with the refined techniques and the great creativity of Italian Resident Head Chef Fabrizio Crocetta. Open for dinner only, the restaurant offers a seductive ambience overlooking a reflection pool, enhanced with suggestive soft lighting.

The wine list also features 200 bottles of predominantly Italian wines and an excellent Champagne selection.

The first flagship Michelin-starred Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin is located in Tokyo’s Bvlgari Ginza Tower, and has offered one of the city’s most sophisticated dining experiences since it opened its doors in 2009.


Dress Code: Resort Smart Casual. Singlets, flip-flops, beach and sports attire are not allowed.

Children under Five: In order to respect the restaurant’s ambience, children five and under are not allowed in the dining room. Families with young patrons aged five or under can enjoy other menus at alternative venues.



Executive Chef Luca Fantin

Having presided over his Tokyo flagship Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin in Tokyo’s Bvlgari Ginza Tower since 2009, Chef Luca Fantin opened a second location at Bvlgari Resort Bali in 2017. Known for his beautiful dishes and fresh interpretations of classic Italian recipes, his cuisine fuses traditional techniques with the finest local and seasonal ingredients. 

Extremely light and flavourful, his preparations are simultaneously authentic and contemporary, not to mention visually stunning. Edible flowers turn plates into tapestries, finishing them with brilliant colour and an artistic flourish.

The only Italian chef in Japan to be awarded with a Michelin star, Chef Luca was also named “The Best Italian Chef in the World” by the prestigious Italian guide Identità Golose, and bestowed the honour of “Best Italian Restaurant” by Gambero Rosso.

In 2016, Assouline published the gorgeous La Cucina di Luca Fantin illustrated book.

After two years he joined Indigo Pearl luxury hotel in Phuket where he was risen to the position of Executive Sous Chef in 2014. 

In his current role as Resident Head Chef at BVLGARI Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin at the Bvlgari Resort Bali, he brings his modern Italian sensibility to the exquisite culinary experience delivered by the Executive Chef Luca Fantin.
