Originating from Apulia region, in Southern Italy, Chef Maurizio learned his trade in the kitchen at his parents’ restaurant on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, where he began his culinary journey that has taken him from his home country Italy, to France, the 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 Luigi, an Italian restaurateur from Puglia, who owns Pizza Fabbrica in Canggu to set up MAURI restaurant.
The restaurant is named after his name in short, “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.
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 in the restaurant is the glass-enclosed kitchen, where clients can witness the chefs at work, also reflecting the openness of Chef Maurizio’s personality.
Inspired by 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 flavours. Open for dinner only, it offers an à la carte menu along with a seasonal tasting menu delicately plated on GAYA’s ceramic, a private collection especially crafted for MAURI.
Aiming to use as much as possible homegrown ingredients 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. This exclusive culinary experience caters to only 36 diners per seating across one evening. It will feature a thoughtfully created and truly innovative six-course dinner menu with drinks pairing.
Chef Maurizio will be in Singapore to join hands with Tippling Club’s kitchen team for their friendship evolves into a culinary partnership fusing together their culture, tradition and above all, their passion for the culinary industry.
