IL BOCCONCINO by Royal Hideaway
Take a trip from northern Italy down south with chef Niki Pavanelli.
Brimming with confidence, this chef is 100% Italian by birth and 100% an honorary Canary Islander, given his love for our island. It has been 15 years since Niki Pavanelli, born in Bologna, disembarked in Tenerife on a mission to highlight the soul of Italian cuisine, after training through various projects in Italy and around the world. In 2018, he took over Il Bocconcino by Royal Hideaway.
We take a journey from northern Italy southward, using traditional Italian recipes and making them fresh without stripping them of their essence. We also have a great time including recipes in our menu, which we learned from our Italian grandmothers.
We seek the best Italian produce using ingredients such as Parmigiano Reggiano DOP cheese.
A careful selection of Italian wines pairs perfectly with the offering at Il Bocconcino by Royal Hideaway.

"What chef Nikki Pavanelli, from Bologna, is doing in his restaurant Il Bocconcino at the Royal Hideaway Corales Resort has a lot of merit. It's not easy to transfer the standards of contemporary haute cuisine to an Italian restaurant outside of Italy. Perhaps that's why his restaurant is always frequented by Italian customers who know how to appreciate his work better than anyone else".
"It is not easy for a chef like Nikki Pavanelli to shake off the clichés and try to guide diners towards haute cuisine in the same way as the great chefs do in Italy. At Il Bocconcino, everything is made fresh in the kitchen, from the bread (the focaccia is incredible) to the desserts. It is like an Italian Nikkei cuisine, in other words, the cuisine made by emigrants with the ingredients they find in their host countries"
"The veteran Nikki Pavanelli at Il Bocconcino, an upscale Italian restaurant at the Royal Hideaway Corales Resort in La Caleta de Adeje, cooks very well. Perfect mastery of pasta, perfect timings, al dente."
"With as much technique as knowledge, Nikki Pavanelli reinterprets the traditional cuisine of different regions of Italy. At Il Bocconcino, he draws some of his ingredients from the larder of the Canary Islands (fish and meat) to create popular and lesser-known recipes from his own country"
