THE ITALIAN EXPERIENCE

in labuan bajo, flores

It was May 2010 when I, Marco Bertini Chef and Founder of MadeInItaly, first arrived in Labuan Bajo, Flores, Indonesia.

Discovering the beauty and the natural paradise of Komodo National Park inspired me during a stay in this small fishing village to bring Italian authentic cooking traditions to this secluded area.

EVERYTHING STARTED FROM HERE.

The days I had the feeling that this little fisherman village would have potential for something more, when no asphalt was on the roads, when expats living in town could be counted between two hands, when only five dive center were operating, when the harbour was empty of boats and so many others i could add.

Passion – Dedication – Consistency. Those are the most important point to achieve results. Trying to transmit this to all my staff in this little fishermen village, that is slowly becoming an important spot for Indonesia and the world. We always do our best, no matter what, to serve you better and I, Marco, personally want to thank you again and again all of you to have given us the trust since the day one. 

The purpose of our cooking is in fact dedicated to achieving two objectives, the qualitative one and the gastronomic one. All stages of the process are to obtain and serve you a genuine product following Italian traditions and culture.

Lots of time passed, studying, on the stove, in the laboratory and now MadeInItaly has a totally different face compared to when has born but The Roots, are and will be always the same. Quality for me is not and adjective but a statement for commitments and I am proud to share this with you.

Our motto will always be:
𝗠𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗜𝗻𝗜𝘁𝗮𝗹𝘆
Driven by Passion
Defined by Tradition
Inspired by Perfection

MARCO BERTINI

BERTINI ARTISAN BAKING

Established in 2023, Bertini Artisan Baking is a project that has long been on my timeline. Located right in front of MadeInItaly, my bakery is the first artisan baking establishment on the island.

Here, I present carefully crafted classic and signature Italian breads and pastries, perfected through countless hours of dedication and culinary expertise. Each creation reflects my unwavering commitment to quality and tradition.

“I’m very attached to the traditions of my Tuscany where I am born and grew up and it’s from those roots how I craft the best result of my creations. 

We don’t just serve food, we create Memories.”

Driven by passion

I make everything from scratch, from my heart and extreme Passion for this profession, to the highest standards. From the innovative creation of new menus to the beautiful presentation of each dish, with dedication I select consitently the freshest ingredients that local markets can offer and the premium Italian ingredients present in the country.

DEFINED By TRADitiON

My passion for traditional Italian cuisine is well reflected through the range of tantalizing flavors in our restaurant’s menu, also with a modern touch, while still staying true to the heritage of my Tuscan origin that defined me during my professional growth.

INSPIRED BY PERFECTION

Born a perfectionist, I am constantly inspired by the search for perfection, studying books and always keeping myself updated despite the distance from my homeland. At Madeinitaly the detail is not a coincidence but the reason why we turn on the stove every day.
