Nominated for Best Italian 15 Comments
This fine-dining Italian is one of the stand-out restaurants at the upscale Madinat Jumeirah complex. A pleasant terrace overlooks the attractive waterways while understated interior decor and friendly, efficient staff reinforce the ethos of the restaurant: romantic sophistication. Thankfully the food matches the setting and atmosphere, with dishes aimed at delicate palates and adventurous foodies. The Wagyu carpaccio is an interesting take on a popular dish and indicates the lengths chefs are willing to go to achieve culinary perfection. Likewise, the rhubarb dressings for salads. Mains stray far beyond pizza, pasta and risotto dishes (think sea bass ravioli and maccheroni stuffed with prawn mousse) to show the full range of modern Italian cuisine. Veal Milanese, grilled lamb and stuffed artichokes will appeal to foodies. Round off with Italian ice creams, cheeses and coffee for one of the city’s more passionate dining experiences. Bellissimo!
Open daily 7pm-11.30pm. Madinat Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim, MJrestaurants@jumeirah.com (04 366 6730 / 6649
