Don’t let the staff dressed in red Ferrari jumpsuits confuse you – this is not a quick-bite, pit stop joint. In fact, even hardcore Italian culinary fans will be impressed with the cuisine if they look beyond the themed decor and bizarre sartorial decisions. The à la carte menu offers up gems such as the antipasto misto to start, with the highlight being the goat’s cheese and sundried tomato wrapped in salty slithers of beef bresaola.
For the main course, among the usual suspects of pasta and pizza lies a selection of shellfish that will rival many fine dining options at far more expensive eateries across town. We love the seafood risotto for a dish that is packed with flavour and generous heaps of delicious sea-dwelling critters.
No visit to a good Italian should be completed without dessert, and the cinnamon ice cream-filled pancake drizzled with a sweet honey and orange glaze is the very reason the word ‘dessert’ was created. Look out for their seasonal barbecue buffet nights, on which for a very reasonable Dhs95 you can help yourself to overflowing tables of antipasti and grilled meats to your heart and stomach’s content.
