Located in the sprawling Atlantis resort, Ronda Locatelli gets a lot right. First of all, the place is huge – ideal for big families with plenty of space for kids to move around should they get bored at the dinner table. Secondly, their pizza menu is vast – again, ideal for those with fussy little ones in tow. Finally, the warm red decor, central pizza kitchen and giant domed oven creates a cosy atmosphere with a bit of culinary entertainment while you wait to be served. Service is friendly and fast here, while the bill will end up looking reasonable in comparison to other Palm-based restaurants.
Open Sat-Wed noon-3pm (lunch), 3pm-5pm (afternoon menu), 6pm-10.30pm (dinner); Thu-Fri noon-3pm, 3pm-5pm, 6pm-11.30pm. AtlantisThe Palm, Palm Jumeirah, (04 426 2626).
