Frankie's Italian Bar & Grill

  • Frankie's Italian Bar & Grill
This dimly-lit venue decked out in warm reds and browns, punctuated by mustard-coloured seating, is pleasant and homely. High expectations abound here, with both celebrity jockey Frankie Dettori and chef Marco Pierre White’s names above the door. And the restaurant doesn’t disappoint. Dishes are both authentic and creative, with starters like the classic bresaola sitting alongside the adventurous roasted scallops with cauliflower toffee, sautéed radicchio and fresh raspberry – a dish filled with bold flavours expertly teamed. Home-made pastas are also a delight. Try the pappardelle ai funghi porcini con chips di parmiggiano (a pasta dish with porcini mushrooms and cherry tomatoes served with toasted parmesan chips), which has a heavenly, rich, thick creamy sauce. Service is professional and friendly, though staff can be a little eager to take orders, which could leave more indecisive parties feeling pressured. Nevertheless, the restaurant offers great value and a comfortable setting, but do book ahead, as it gets busy. Frankie's Italian Bar & Grill

    Let's keep it simple; one of the best places in town

    Great food, great service, great staff, great ambiance, great piano entertainment

    Also, they manage to renew themselves and change the way they serve, prepare the dishes. Like that

    If I had to mention one thing it would be attentiveness of staff in the bar

    Went with friends for daughters birthday. Service was so-so. food was mediocre but we had problems paying for the meal. We had coupons and the manager stiffed us on the bill. She was abrupt and rude and this is not a place we will ever go back to. For the cost of the food and drink at Frankies, there are too many other restaurants in Dubai that are so much better and treat their guests well.

    The place is not bad but there are some terrible people.
    For example: the manager Andreas Palese.
    He's arrogant and presumptuous.
    I recommend to avoid because he's a very rude and disagreeable person.
    There are a lot of other very nice restaurants in Dubai: avoid this!!!
