Carluccio’s, The Dubai Mall
Nominated for Best Italian 36 Comments
- Picture 1 of 2
This 20-year-old chain is the perfect spot for a mid-shop carbo-load. It doesn’t serve pizza, but Antonio Carluccio’s brainchild serves the best in-mall pasta in the city. Decor is trendy yet cosy and the service, despite the fervent pursuit of the upsell, is slicker than most. For post-noon meals, there’s a nice range of salads and meat dishes, but the pastas are the surest bet. The ragu in the bolognese is rich; the clam vongole spaghetti salted to perfection and the mushroom tagliatelle bold. The Dubai Mall branch is also a great post-dinner spot. Views of the largest fountain in the world, a strong espresso and a perfectly passable chocolate fondant making for the perfect nightcap.
