  • Friday Love Brunch (Friday)

    Everyone’s got a brunch but we’ve got a frunch! Join us for Europe's finest nibbles & snifters, and loads of dancing to all-time classics. After party at Tamanya Terrace's Secret Garden until 2am. Dhs249 (soft drinks); Dhs359 (unlimited drinks).
    Timings: 12.30pm-4.30pm

Tucked away in the Radisson Blu Hotel in Dubai Media City, the glass, stone and dark wood decor of this high-ceilinged restaurant gives Certo a business-like sense of masculinity. Bottles are displayed in a transparent store room, artfully arranged in a six-metre-high modern glass centrepiece. The Media City set keep the place buzzing, especially during lunchtimes, busily selecting from a menu featuring traditional pizzas cooked in a wood-fired oven, as well as pasta and other Italian staples. A few standout items, such as onion fondue risotto with fois gras medallions, keep things interesting. With slick, unobtrusive service, orders arrive quickly from the kitchen, without fuss. Some of the dishes are lacking in the punch and refinement you’d expect at this price bracket, and we think more adventurous seasoning could lift the flavours and make things more memorable, but overall there’s little else to fault.

    This is my first visit to Certo, since I am new in town, just relocated from Bergamo to Dubai, I am happy I didn t not only had excellent food, but met extraordinary people like Chiara and Chef Renaud who made me feeling just comfortable as I would feel seating at home.
    My recommendation: start with fiori di zucca, followed by saltimbocca alla Romana, especially made with polenta!

    I have had a romantic dinner with my fiance at this restaurant, the service was friendly and discreet at the same time, so perfect for us, we had gnocchi al cacao with porcini mushroom and risotto al cacao with bacon, followed by filetto di branzino with coffee and chocolate, as a sweat end we could not miss chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream. (this menu is part of february monthly promotion)to be honest we were both "scared" to try this dishes, finally no disappointments, thanks to chef Daniele and his team for proposing this adventorous menu in Dubai. we will be back soon.

    An authentic Italian restaurant in Dubai, I had burrata, followed by veal chop brasato style with an excellent glass of Barolo to pair my main. the athmosphere created by Chiara and Claudio both from Italy and their team, make me feel just a step away from Italy. Wish to thank Hellen, who served us with a smile all the time!

    I recently relocated to DXB and Certo is certainly going to be my home's kitchen away from Italy. I truly enjoyed the food, and the welcoming atmosphere at the door by Chiara. I enjoyed an authentic pizza 4 formaggi, but i ll definitely come back to taste the rest of the menu' and the the wine's tower..!
