Mauri restaurant promises to be a hit with a culinary pedigree of the first order.
Maurizio Bombini, Chef Owner, and Luigi Amorotti, Co-Founder, have opened their first restaurant together … “MAURI” on Jalan Petitinget n100.
Originating from Apulia region in Southern Italy, Chef Maurizio learned his trade in the kitchen at his parent’s restaurant on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, where he began his culinary journey that has taken him to Italy, France, USA, China and Indonesia.
After four successful years heading Il Ristorante at Bulgari Resort Bali and another four overlooking the award-winning dining venues at the Ritz Carlton Reserve Mandapa in Ubud, Chef Maurizio decided it was time to fully express his culinary style.
He joins forces with another Italian restaurateur from Puglia, Luigi, who is established in Bali since 2010 and owns La Fabbrica in Canggu.
With MAURI restaurant, their friendship evolves into a culinary partnership fusing together their culture, tradition and above all, their passion for the restaurant industry.
“It was a natural evolution,” said Maurizio. “After more than 10 years working for Ritz Carlton and Bulgari, I realised I was ready to open my own restaurant. My true passion is cooking, I belong in the kitchen and I want to share this love with my team and guests.”
The restaurant is named after his nick name, “MAURI”, as his family and friends call him. A name that resonates as a sign of intimacy and trust which he aims to create with his clients.
The interiors are designed by Usher By Design reflecting Chef Maurizio’s approach of keeping the integrity of ingredients as pure and authentic as possible in a contemporary setting that exudes the Pugliese warmth. The key feature is the glass-enclosed kitchen, where clients can witness the chefs at work, also reflecting the openness of Chef Maurizio’s personality.
Inspired from his Pugliese origins close to his heart, “MAURI” offers a contemporary Italian dining experience with a touch of tradition where ingredients are handled with care to showcase their purest flavors. Open for dinner only, it offers an a la Carte menu along a seasonal tasting menu delicately plated on GAYA’s ceramic, a private collection especially crafted for MAURI.
Aiming to use as much as possible homemade items from its hydroponic garden on the rooftop and by selecting the highest quality of local products in collaboration with Balinese farmers, the restaurant offers a conscious cuisine that respects the ingredients seasonality and its origins.
MAURI accommodates up to 40 seats on the ground floor facing the live kitchen with an intimate 5 seats Chef counter for private tastings. A separate Bar & Lounge where small bites and cocktails “Aperitivo Style” are served is located on the mezzanine level with an outdoor balcony.
“Throughout my career, many of my clients encouraged me to open my own restaurant and I had several opportunities, but it took me time to find the right one. It’s an exciting new adventure and we can’t wait to welcome all of you”.
