Save 20% on all food
If you’re hankering for Italian food but can’t choose between a casual, rustic pizza or a more upmarket, fine dining affair, try our winner of Best Italian at this year’s Time Out Restaurant Awards. The venue, nestled amid lush gardens, boasts an open-air terrace upstairs, offering panoramic views of the ocean and Palm Jumeirah. In the mood for upscale pasta and meat? Opt for Bussola’s chic downstairs incarnation; if you still want open-air dining experience, there’s a large terrace boasting the same dramatic views. Service is efficient and the candlelit tables fuel the romantic atmosphere. Pasta traditionalists may be disappointed by the menu’s lack of bog-standard options, but the creative dishes on offer (from suckling pig to rack of lamb to home-made ravioli) should appease the most demanding.
Open daily noon-2.45pm; 7pm-10.45pm. The Westin Mina Seyahi, Al Sufouh Road, Dubai Marina (04 399 4141).
