Mazzei was raised with a passion for food, often in the family kitchen, and had his first taste of a professional experience working in his uncle’s Gelateria where he mastered Italian cakes and gelato by the age of nine, and later taking his first chef role at the age of 14. Over the last four decades, Francesco has been recognised as one of the great Italian chefs, having worked in five-star hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants across Europe, Asia, the United States, and the Middle East.
Francesco has created an enticing menu of Italian classics, as well as his signature dishes. The menu boasts a generous selection of colourful antipasti, a fritto misto featuring seafood and seasonal vegetables from the Maltese shores and soil, and a show-stopping ‘Orecchia di elefante’. While the dishes are rooted in Italian tradition and flavours, Mazzei and his team draw inspiration from local seasonal produce to create a memorable and modern dining experience.View Menu
