    we celebrated my wife birthday and the services provided by splendido was pure excellent! we were seated in the terrace and welcomed by the manager and staff...the table was beautifully decorated and customized to reflect the high attention given by splendido. we were soon offered complementary welcome appitizer followed by top notch dishes...the staff later presented a complementary cake and my present to my wife which i intrusted to them the night before (high value gift)...rest assured this restaurant is ideal for celebrations as they make you feel really special and you would leave later praising them! the bill was only 400 dirhams which included 2 appitizers, 2 main dishes, sparkling water and a soft drink.
    splendido is back in our view to #1 italian diamond class range of restaurants...you will have to try it to believe it :)

    You are looking for a restaurant that service authentic Italian food with a very nice ambiente and an impacible service, look now further and go to BICE.
    Splednidio on the other hand diappointed me very much, as it used to be better then Bice. The terrace is nice, but now it is getting hot and you will be squeezeed into a small wooden hall (the inside).
    The service is still ok, but I see everyone is always mentioning Massimo and Emanuel, who are these guyes and what happend to them. They must haved run the show in the past. Now the "show" is different. Somehow boring and monotone. The food is not authentic anymore and you can eat better Italian food for less, like in Bertuccis or Fratelli la Buffala (very good Pizza!). Obviously the main competitor is Bice, but Bice is now far ahead of the game. I would not return for lunch, maybe for Brunch, but the price is becoming a bit to high for what you get. The food is fresh and of high quality, but I think it needs more. Hopefully one day things will change and I will go back to the "splendid" restaurant that it once represented.

    I have been to Splendido many times, but things have changed. The service is average, the food, NOT Italian, and you just get bored. The terrace is nice, but you need more to compete against so many other restaurants in town. I guess we all miss the past (see other comments). Then you could see and feel the hard work of the management and its stuff. Get Masimo back. He knew how to run that place together with the Italian manager.
    Keep the food simple and Italian, like in Urbano or Bice. The ambiance is ok, but when the terrace is closed it gets a bit boring.

    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen of the Splendido Team, what happend to you. Your restaurant is now forgotten! No awards or nominations anymore. I guess your PR is not really working. Ijust saw the Time Out Dubai Awards nominees, but you have never been mentioned (not even for the brunch). The glorious days must be over, but you should now work even harder to compete with all the new restaurants around you. Follow Bice's example. they still know Roberto, but Splendido, nobody remembers you anymore. Whoever wrote about Chef Massimo and Emanuel was right. They were an unbeatable team giving true service and outstanding food in a classic Italian way.
    It used to be a fun place to be, but know I would not return, sorry!
    Improve your food, service, and advertising, its for your own good. Sorry for these hard words, but you know its true.
    Good Luck, you can do it.
