Looking for Italian food in Dubai.
This is one of great and value for money places.

I love italian food, so I decided to give it a try. I felt disappointed, totally.
Food quality is quite average and portions are so small! I ordered Spagetti carbonara, "regular" size. AED 40. What I got was a big plate with a tiny portion of pasta. I felt they were laughing at me. For that price, you could find a much bigger portion (I mean, an actual "regular" portion) nearly any place in Dubai AND cooked in a better way!
Service was really slow. It took 10 minutes at least only for the diet pepsi to come (the place was almost empty) and I didnt get my food till 30 minutes later.
View of the fountain is amazing from the restaurant, but that's all. I wouldn't come back nor recommend it to anyone.
There are better places in Dubai where you feel what you eat is well worth the money you spend.

Urbano is an Italian restaurant located in the Souk Al Bahar with a terrace overlooking the Fountains (best tourist place in Dubai).
The framework is quite simple, wooden table and some chairs. The menu offers a selection of Italian dishes such as antipasti, salads, main input, pasta dishes or pizzas. Also some meat or fish are available.
Our choice fell on:
- Selection of antipasti (Feta, Mozzarella, Chorizo, Chicken Salami)
- Basket of Focaccia with olive oil
- Penne with tomato sauce and mascarpone
- Penne with chicken and rocket
- 1l San Pellegrino
The antipasti were beautifully presented on a tray. Special mention for the hot chorizo, excellent. The basket of focaccia also a good idea with this mix olive oil and vinegar. By cons, in flat big disappointment for my pasta sauce and mascarpone, a little dull and nothing special.
The service is fast but lacks smile and kindness.
In the end, you pay for the situation but the food is not up to the framework. Damage.
Total price of the meal (AED 221)
Areas for improvement: kitchen a little dull. Especially in pasta dishes.

I'm a tourist from spain.
i like Italian food, i have been in dubai for one month, i visited more that 70 restaurants in dubai with my family.
Urbano was one of the best restaurant in dubai, good prices, great welcome from the hostess, tasty food ( Goat's cheese salad, pene mascarpone and beef fillet) friendly service.
i liked the view of the restaurant and its open kitchen. my wife was very happy to find in the end someone who speaks spanish and explain for her the menu as i was watching the fountain from the terrasse, and i was surprised that was one young moroccan chef who left the kitchen and took the order.
after that i found in website that Urbano is one of jumeirah group and resort.

Food : below par, no flavour. Pastas were bland and small portions. Pizzas were better - the Vegetariana good. Funghi & Chicken was horrible. Chicken bits smelt and tasted foul. Absolutely not worth the tab.
Drinks : Mocktails were good.
Service : Very very poor service. Thursday nights are busy its no excuse for the staff to be unpleasant, inattentive and downright rude in their service. They had enough staff to be able to attend however none did, until you called them aloud & motioned them to visit your table. Hate doing so but no choice when left waiting for intervals of 10-20minutes without an eye contact by passing waiters. Starters arrived 40 minutes from placing order, main course 1hour 30min later.
Location & Ambience: located next to the entrance of Souk al Bahar (near Burj Khalifa) as you approach from Dubai Mall so location and view from the terrace is fantastic, décor was tasteful and I like that they went with no clutter & more light themes. No compliments however for service and food! Exorbitant prices for below par food.
