A reliable Media City Italian that’s perfect for deal-making business lunches)
Time Out Dubai staff
It remains a top spot for media types who want to close the deal over lunch thanks to good business lunches on offer and a central location. The six metre tall exposed cellar that cuts through the middle of the room punctuates the design, the service – despite reports from friends to the contrary – has always been helpful and the menu obligingly suggests healthy options for those not after a carb binge. Food is variable – the beef Carpaccio is a Roseanne Barr-friendly portion (and that’s fine by us), the grilled fish main is a safe and fresh option and the pizzas are a safe order but lack the X-Factor. We’ve yet to leave Certo wowed but, then again, we’ve yet to leave severely disappointed: which is more than we can say about some hotel eateries.
