Chef Mauro will also present his incredible cuisine at an exceptional management cocktail by the beach where all island foodies can sample his elegant but simply-tasty Italian dishes while gazing into the sunset.

Born in Busto Arsizio, a city in northern Italy, Chef Mauro spent his early years at his uncle’s restaurant where he fell in love with the world of cuisine. Deciding he wanted to become a chef early on, he enrolled and studied at the Institute of Hotel Management in Stresa, one of Europe’s most famous hotel schools, mastering his craft in various restaurants, before graduating from the institute with extremely promising grades.

Mauro Panebianco quickly rose to fame after starting work at a Swiss hotel in Milan, which quickly garnered a reputation for serving exceptional Italian cuisine. He later opened a restaurant in Munich, which also became wildly popular. Not long after, he was headhunted and coaxed to pack his knives and leave to open a bold new restaurant in Russia, beginning a decade-long journey. Cantinetta Antinori is a prestigious joint project established by restaurant-industry giant, Arkady Novikov and the Italian wine house Antinori; a fine dining experience set in a beautiful 700-year-old mansion, where Mauro Panebianco has served as chef de cuisine at Cantinetta Antinori since it opened in 2004.

As a juicy cherry on top, Sun Siyam Iru Veli offers all guests at Chef Mauro’s signature Restaurant Cantinetta Antinori in Moscow the chance to WIN a notable Wine Cellar Dining Experience at Iru Veli, when dining at the restaurant. Terms & Conditions Apply.

Sun Siyam Iru Veli, which recently kicked off its immensely-successful celebrity chef residency program only this year, and has already hosted some of the world’s most sought-after chefs such as Marcel Thiele, Christophe Chiavola, and Hemant Oberoi.

All guests staying during Chef Mauro’s residency can make reservations on a first come, first serve basis.
