The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali just recently announce the latest addition to their culinary team; Chef Davide Allievi, to be in-charge at the resort’s prestigious PREGO restaurant.
Arrived on the island directly from a stint as Chef de Cuisine for the Michelin Plate winning Limoni Italian Restaurant at The Ritz Carlton Guangzhou, China, Chef Davide is expected to bring passion, energy and innovation to his new role at the resort. Born and raised in Italy, Chef Davide has a Culinary Arts Diploma from the Instituto 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, he relocated to Beijing, China in 2016 where he took charge of the daily operations of a gourmet restaurant and bakery. Chef Davide remained in the Chinese capital for another year before accepting a position as Chef de Cuisine at Il Forno Italian Restaurant in Grand Hyatt Chenyang.
“We are honored to have a professional of Chef Davide’s caliber take over the culinary reins of Prego” said Oriol Montal, the General Manager of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali. “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,”
Now Chef Davide will be officially 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.
