Roberto Maggioni, born in Milan, took to cheffing at the early age of 15. A few years down the road, whilst working at a fine-dining restaurant, Il Giardino, in the square of Pollensa, Mallorca, Roberto was headhunted by West Hooker-Poletti, a successful restaurateur in Los Angeles and offered the position of head chef at at "Lago", West's 20 year standing Italian restaurant. He arrived and ensured that things have not been tranquil at Locanda del Lago since. Roberto revamped the menu into a paragon of unique Northern Italian specialties while keeping all of the traditional dishes for which they were known. After the Lago experience he was hired by the prestigious hotelier Sean MacPherson for the opening of the Beverly Hills restaurant Il Covo.
Roberto, intent on returning to his love of island life in Mallorca, moved back in 2012 to plan the opening of his share in Osteria N15.
