Il ristorante - Niko Romito

Il Ristorante – Niko Romito is located on the fifth floor of the hotel and provides a splendid view over the monumental tomb of the Emperor Augustus, making full use of a large terrace area. The atmosphere is elegant and welcoming, with mahogany walls, Bulgari artwork and seating for up to 54. 

As created by Chef Niko, the menu reinvents contemporary Italian cuisine in a concept that has been developed exclusively for Bulgari Hotels and Resorts. The most iconic traditional recipes have been re-written to emphasise their essential nature, purity and lightness, and then entrusted to the hands and talent of Emilio Di Cristo, who was sous chef of the Bulgari Resort Dubai for four years.

Chef Niko is known for his precision and mastery of Italian gastronomy, and his bold concept—developed exclusively for Bulgari Hotels & Resorts—establishes a new canon of Italian cooking, focusing on the essential ingredients and character that express the culture, elegance and vibrancy of the Made in Italy designation.

The Chef developed the menus and personally trained each of the chefs that helm Il Ristorante - Niko Romito restaurants around the world. He continues to act as a counselor and consultant, overseeing the integrity of the kitchen in every destination.

After going to culinary school and gaining early experience in Italy, he traveled to Spain and England, where he worked in hotels, learning the arts of gastronomy in high-end kitchens. When the opportunity arose to work for Chef Niko Romito at Bulgari Resort Dubai, he did not hesitate. After some years working closely with Chef Giacomo Amicucci in Dubai, he has returned to Italy to embark on a new chapter with the latest edition of Il Ristorante - Niko Romito.
