Giorgio Locatelli, the chef behind London’s Michelin-starred Locanda Locatelli, is to open his first restaurant in Cyprus in May.

He has partnered with the Amara hotel in Limassol to launch Ristorante Locatelli as part of a trio of big-name restaurants at the 'ultra luxury' site.

Locatelli says the restaurant will bring ‘a touch of Italy to the East Mediterranean’, offering an Italian-led menu and wine list.

It will open at the hotel alongside an outpost of Nobu Matsuhisa’s Japanese-Peruvian Matsuhisa concept, and Armyra by Papaioannou, from Greek chef Giorgos Papaioannou.

Born in Northern Italy, Locatelli trained as an apprentice under Anton Edelmann at The Savoy and later won a Michelin star as head chef at London’s Zafferano in 1999.

He left to open Locanda Locatelli in Mayfair in 2002, and it has now held a Michelin star 16 years.

The chef also operates a restaurant, Ronda Locatelli, at the Atlantis The Palm luxury resort in Dubai. Last year it launched what it claims is the largest vegan menu in the city, with over 40 dishes.
