Time Out Says

Tucked away in Dubai’s long-standing Crowne Plaza Dubai, this Sheikh Zayed Road restaurant has that rustic, worn feel of being well frequented over the years. With its narrow layout and arched ceiling, there’s an unexpected, old-railway-station feel to the place, and passengers (a medley of tourists, suits and locals) drift in and out throughout the evening. While prices aren’t as keen as you might expect for somewhere that tends to remain fairly under-the-radar (starters cost as much as some of the mains), the restaurant’s pizzas and pasta dishes represent good value for money. This is even truer if you’re an ardent formaggio fan – for when a dish on the menu lists cheese among its ingredients, rest assured you’re going to get a lot of it. And then some. If you’ve recently had a few pints in the neighbouring Harvesters pub, that’s surely no bad
thing. The food is dense and hearty – this is by no means fine dining, but good, stodgy comfort food – and a frills-free way to set yourself up for the evening enjoying.
