The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali takes great pleasure to welcome Chef Davide Allievi to its culinary team. He has arrived on the island direct from a stint as Chef de Cuisine for the Michelin Plate winning Limoni Italian Restaurant at The Ritz Carlton Guangzhou, China.
As a young and contemporary Italian Chef, Davide is expected to bring passion, energy and innovation to his new role at the resort. He comes with an impressive background and valuable Michelin Star kitchen experience. Born and raised in Italy, Chef Davide has a Culinary Arts Diploma from the Istituto Paritario Professionale “Michele Pinto”. Upon completing his studies, he embarked on a culinary career and fine-tuned his skills with a succession of jobs in Italy and London. Once armed with a wealth of expertise as a Sous Chef and Pastry Chef, he relocated to Beijing, China in 2016 where he took charge of the daily operations for a gourmet restaurant and bakery. Chef Davide then remained in the Chinese capital for a new challenge as the Executive Chef of a unique concept restaurant called Mojo. The venue quickly gained national media attention from the likes of Cosmopolitan and Vogue. This exposure also meant that Chef Davide was noticed by luxury hotels in the area, including Grand Hyatt Shenyang where he accepted the position as Chef de Cuisine for Il Forno Italian Restaurant.
Now Chef Davide finds himself on the island of Bali where he is responsible for Prego, a Westin concept restaurant that puts the fun back into Italian dining. This family-friendly venue satisfies appetites with its generous portions of classic pasta dishes, regional specialties and pizzas that represent real value for money. Once he is familiar with the availability of local ingredients, Chef Davide is looking forward to revitalizing the menu at Prego and putting his own signature on each dish. He will also take the restaurant’s Brunch Infinito to the next level with lots of delicious dishes and live cooking options.
“We are honored to have a professional of Chef Davide’s caliber take over the culinary reins of Prego. His youth and enthusiasm will serve him well. As an Italian national, he will certainly appreciate Bali’s traditional food culture and family way of life that is sadly lacking in many parts of the world today,” says Oriol Montal, General Manager of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali.
