Although the dated decor of this small eatery is in need of a revamp, the food is certainly up to scratch and has a comforting home-cooked quality. The generous sharing plate of assorted cold cuts served with crisp, buttery rosemary fried bread, pickles and aged balsamic vinegar is completely moreish. Service is similarly excellent. Staff are friendly and accommodating but keep a comfortable distance, and plates are cleared promptly – but never too early – and dishes brought out at a timely, measured pace. Sadly, there’s not much buzz about the place and diners are mostly made up of single hotel guests, but the lack of ambience is something that the food makes up for and its quiet, friendly atmosphere does create the perfect setting for a quiet catch up with friends over a leisurely dinner.

    Do not need to visit Italy to taste the real Italian food. After visiting many Italian restaurants, I can say that I found my favourite one in Dubai. Great food, great choice and great value. Will come back soon.
