Chef Stefano Mori

Meet the Specialty Outlet Chef of Si Ristorante Italiano & Bar

Passionate Specialty Chef with a Flair for Authentic Italian Cuisine

Stefano, an Italian native who grew up in Rome, has had an extraordinary journey that has taken him across the globe and shaped him into the talented chef he is today.

In 2009, Stefano made a courageous decision to pursue his love for cooking and embarked on a thrilling culinary journey. Starting from scratch, he honed his skills in renowned hotels and restaurants in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. From establishments like the Marriott Grosvenor London to Matijaz Amsterdam and Baxter Storey, Stefano immersed himself in diverse culinary traditions, continuously expanding his knowledge and improving his fluency in foreign languages.

Driven by an unwavering desire to improve, Stefano ventured to Indonesia in 2012-2013, where he served as the Chef Manager at BELLA ITALIA. His passion for culinary excellence led him back to Europe in 2015, where he secured a position at Barrafina, a Michelin-starred restaurant in London. This experience proved pivotal in shaping his mindset and propelled him to the Netherlands in 2017-2019.

During his time in the Netherlands, Stefano worked as a Senior Chef de Partie at another Michelin-starred restaurant, THE DUCHESS in W Amsterdam. He then assumed the role of Sous Chef at Marriott Amsterdam Arena, further solidifying his culinary expertise. Stefano's journey continued as he joined Park Plaza art'otel Amsterdam, where he continued to expand his culinary repertoire.

In 2019, Stefano's culinary adventures led him to Sandals Resort Barbados, where he excelled as the Italian Head Chef until 2022. Currently, he holds the esteemed position of Italian Chef de Cuisine at Rotana Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi. Stefano's exceptional culinary skills and dedication to his craft were recognized when he and his team received the highly regarded TIMEOUT UAE award for 'Best Italian Restaurant in Abu Dhabi,' in May of this year.

Stefano's story is a testament to his unwavering determination, adventurous spirit, and exceptional culinary skills. We are fortunate to have him as part of our team, and we can't wait to see what delicious creations he will bring to the table next!
