The Italian Wonders

Celebrating the heritage of classic Italian cuisine, AMICI by Enrico Bartolini invites diners on a joyous journey through the flavours that have been passed down through generations in the sun-kissed villages of Italy.

Alessandro D’amico

Enrico Bartolini, a culinary virtuoso with an impressive array of reputable restaurants under his belt, is making a groundbreaking move by opening a restaurant in Bali. Located in the heart of Seminyak, the award-winning chef has curated a menu at AMICI by Enrico Bartolini that echoes the authenticity and time-honoured recipes of Italian classics. The execution of these culinary masterpieces falls into the capable hands of Head Chef Alessandro D’amico, who brings a passion for tradition and an innovative flair to the kitchen.

As you step into AMICI by Enrico Bartolini, the ambience immediately transports you to the rustic charm of an Italian village. The interior design is a harmonious blend of earth tones, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The spacious layout, featuring an open view of the kitchen and display shelves adorned with carefully selected ingredients, invites guests to embark on a gastronomic adventure. The menu is a carefully curated selection of Italian classics presented in a contemporary way. From the first bite to the last, diners are taken on a sensory journey, savouring the flavours of homemade pasta, succulent meats and decadent desserts. Every dish, a genuine representation of Italy’s culinary legacy, is crafted with dedication to authenticity and the use of locally farmed ingredients, including basil sourced from the lush fields of Kintamani.

Il Polpo

Start your culinary voyage with antipasti that tantalise the taste buds, such as Il Polpo consisting of tender grilled octopus with saffron potato and black ink sauce. Try the Uovo 62, a sous-vide egg served with Italian black truffle, Pecorino cheese cream and asparagus. An Italian experience will never be complete without a browse through the pizza or pasta section. The Burrata e Capocollo is made with burrata cheese, cherry tomatoes and dry-cured pork. For the signature pasta, the Ravioli alla Vaccinara features wagyu Tokusen oxtail ragu with Taleggio cheese cream.

Enjoy a geographical journey through Italy with each dish as your guide. La Mia Parmigiana serves the flavours of Sicily, while the historical dish Ravioli al Tovagliolo pays homage to the culture of Piemonte, where the ladies would carry napkin-wrapped ravioli to the field workers a century ago to be eaten by hand. The crowning jewel, Torta Tenerina, from the city of Ferrara, is a dessert created for Queen Elena Petrovich to symbolise the joy of a happy marriage.

Whiskey Sour

To complement your meal, the restaurant has one of the most complete wine selections on the island, ranging from Old World to New World labels that are sourced from around the world, making it a contender for the Wine Spectator list. Additionally, the bar also crafted some of the best tipples on the island for a pre- or post-meal drink. The Cheezy Fragole is a perfect concoction with strawberry-infused tequila and Italian bitter-and-sweet vermouth.

At AMICI by Enrico Bartolini, the culinary offerings extend beyond the plate where Italian cultures are celebrated. It’s a fusion of classics and contemporary and an invitation to savour the richness of Italy in every moment.
