After receiving his diploma from the I.P.S.S.A.R. hotel school in Treviso, Luca Fantin began his professional career in 2000, working at the most famous, top-ranked restaurants in Italy and abroad.
In Italy, he has worked at the prestigious restaurants in Milan and Rome both with one star in the Michelin guide.
He began working outside Italy at the Akelarre restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain (2 stars in the Michelin guide), and then at the Mugaritz (2 stars) as Chef de partie. He moved to Tokyo in 2006 for a short training course at the Ruy Gin Restaurant (2 stars). He returned to Italy in 2006, going to work at La Pergola restaurant in Rome (3 stars) as sous chef.
It was precisely then that his talent came to the fore, with this period being his most important professional experience thus far, leading to the development and perfection of his own personal style of cooking. In 2009 Luca Fantin became Executive Chef of Il Ristorante at the Bulgari Ginza Tower in Tokyo. His cooking style is characterised by a perfect balance between aesthetics and taste: every dish is a unique creation, conceived to stimulate desire. The presentation is so meticulous and the flavours so intense that the eyes and nose anticipate the experience that will be confirmed and sublimated by the taste.
**Milan, November 10th – The 2015 edition of the Italian culinary guide Identità Golose awarded the executive chef of the Bulgari Tokyo Restaurant, Luca Fantin, “Best Italian Chef in the World”.
