The Team at London House

Roberta London House

Roberta Zalikaite

General Manager

London House’s General Manger, Roberta, was born in Lithuania, but moved to Ireland as a small child. After leaving high school high school she got a summer job at Disneyland Paris which was her first exposure to working in hospitality. Roberta worked in the food and beverage sector at the theme park, doing everything from waiting tables, serving ice cream, and making hotdogs.  

Roberta then went on to study hospitality management in one of the world’s leading hospitality universities in Shannon, Ireland. Her second year was an exciting one, as she moved to Belgium to work as an intern chef for a year, studying French cooking. She also had the chance to experience working in the restaurant’s front of house and the bar, hotel reception, and housekeeping. She says ‘this is where I fell in love with the food and beverage sector above all else’.

In 2015, Roberta made the move to London where she started her managerial career in 108 Brasserie whilst still studying. She says ‘I spent my managerial time here starting off as waitress on a final year placement. After my graduation in 2016, I decided to stay on at 108, where I was given such roles as restaurant supervisor and restaurant manager’.

Roberta is passionate about hospitality. ‘To me, hospitality is not only about the service, as anyone can deliver great standards. Hospitality is about how you make your guests feel while they are visiting your restaurant and using your products, it's about creating memorable experiences and creating deep customer connections’. 

Robert Mazur

Robert Mazur

Executive Head Chef

Fluent in three languages, Robert brings a passion for European flavours and exceptional quality from his experience in award-winning kitchens both in London and his home country of Poland.

Robert began his culinary career back in 1992 when he started his classical training working at the oldest French restaurant in London, L’Escargot. Subsequent moves to Soho House and, the then Michelin-starred, Les Saveurs by Marco Pierre White further built on these foundations of traditional techniques and skills, giving Robert the grounding to return to Poland in 1998 as a confident chef.

Leading positions in the restaurants of luxury Haffner and Mazurkas Hotels followed, plus a fantastic opportunity to launch two new kitchens under the restauranter Magda Gessler. Here he picked up valuable experience in leadership and how to handle the pressures of a new restaurant opening.

Coming back to London in 2011, Robert took on the Head Chef position at the highly acclaimed Northall restaurant within the prestigious Corinthia Hotel, where he led the team for five years.

Robert joined Gordon Ramsay Restaurants in 2017 as Head Chef at Heddon Street Kitchen just off Regent’s Street. This set him up perfectly to manage the larger team at Bread Street Kitchen in St. Paul’s as Executive Head Chef, before moving on to oversee the kitchens of both London House in Battersea and York & Albany near Regent's Park.

Stefano Tortelli

Head Chef

Stefano, our Head Chef, is from Rome and started to cook with his Grandmother when he was a child. ‘My grandmother used to make fresh homemade pasta and always I loved helping her spread the dough and cut the tagliatelle. I grew up watching culinary tv shows and cooking for my family and friends.’

When he was 13 years old, Stefano started to study his other second passion, flight. ‘I studied for 5 years in an Aeronautical Institute as a Pilot and air traffic controller, but I later decided to change to a different professional life’. By 2015, his love of food and the hospitality industry had taken over and he bought a one way ticket to London where Stefano worked at Byron Burger in Camden and then at the Sky Garden as Chef de Partie. In 2018, he worked as a senior sous chef at Soho House, and joined Gordon Ramsay Restaurants later that year. After ten months as sous chef, Stefano’s passion and hard work was rewarded and he was promoted to Head Chef at London House. He says that ‘This is the dream realized. From 2008 I have followed Gordon Ramsay on TV and always thought that one day I would work for him as Head Chef in one of his Restaurants’.

Outside of work, Stefano loves to improve his culinary skills and knowledge by travelling around the world to discover new foods, cultures, and recipes. ‘Traveling is my passion but when I have free time, I love to go paragliding, scuba diving and motorbiking.’
