Chef Niko Romito

The visionary behind the signature Italian concept of Il Ristorante - Niko Romito in Dubai, Beijing, Shanghai, Milan and Paris, Chef Niko Romito brings extraordinary talent and artistry to the world of Bulgari Hotels & Resorts. A native of central Italy’s Abruzzo region, he has remained true to his roots while reimagining the flavours of Italy with a daring and simplicity that rewrites the rules of classic cuisine. Before his collaboration with Bulgari Hotels & Resorts, his restaurant Reale garnered three Michelin stars for its striking contemporary Italian dishes.

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.

Mauro Aloisio, Resident Head Chef

Born and raised in Milan, Chef Mauro Aloisio studied at the San Pellegrino Institute and trained at the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel in St. Moritz before returning to Milan to hold positions in three of the city’s most prestigious restaurants: Bulgari Hotel Milano, Armani/Nobu, and the two Michelin-starred VUN. Before joining Il Ristorante - Niko Romito at Bulgari Hotel Shanghai, Chef Mauro spent time with Chef Niko at his Accademia in Abruzzo, learning the methods and philosophy behind his canon of Italian cuisine. As part of the inaugural team at Il Ristorante, Chef Mauro was among the talents that earned Il Ristorante – Niko Romito a single Michelin star in September 2018, just three months after its opening.
