The New Face of Cucina

The New Face of Cucina


The luxurious Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort has just made a much-awaited announcement that delights epicureans. On 28 August, the resort reopened its signature restaurant, Cucina, bringing a new vibrant concept, look and approach toward sustainability.

The entrance is attention-grabbing, leading to sophisticated bar areas, as well as a brand-new mozzarella pizza bar adjacent to the copper beach oven, exuding the promise of Italian cuisine and music. The newly revamped restaurant brings in the surrounding nature with ocean blue shades here and there, earthy terracotta tiles, leafy green tableware, and more.


The team of kitchen artisans at Cucina is now helmed by new Italian Head Chef Patrizia Battolu, bringing more than four decades of experience and passion for food. At Cucina, the Italian flavours are authentic, while still using fresh, local ingredients. Hailing from Southern Italy, Chef Patrizia has been trotting the globe driven by her penchant for travel and food.

The culinary highlights are endless at Cucina, from a cheese platter to the chef’s recommendations of Spigola Alla Marinara, Frutti Di Mare Pizza and Gnocchi Al Gorgonzola. Top it all off with creatively concocted cocktails and fine Italian wines. Savour Italian indulgence every day for lunch and dinner, as well as brunch every Sunday from 11am to 3pm.

Cucina’s team is also showcasing new handcrafted and sustainable uniforms designed by Indonesian artisan Adrie Basuki, known for creating chic pieces from recycled cotton rayon as well as leftover fabrics for minimum environmental impact. The uniforms are tailor-made by Indonesian housewives in Kampung Perca, Bogor. This approach is part of Sofitel’s CSR programme, and contribution to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals movement.
