Time Out Says
You can choose from indoors or terrace vibes for your meal, offering gorgeous views out over the Dubai Water Canal.
On the menu, you’ll find many a traditional Mediterranean dish, and special mention from the starter menu has to go to the heirloom tomato and red onion bruschetta served on a walnut and basil pesto-coated hunk of bread. It’s beautifully balanced and bursting with Italian flavour. Its taste is further enhanced by thinly sliced yellow, red and green tomatoes.
Alternatively, try the grilled calamari, which (refreshingly) isn’t delivered in the conventional battered and fried format, but instead as multiple flat sheets of squid, alongside baby octopus tentacles. It’s a garlicky delight.
For your main course you’ll have a tough time picking between the authentic pizzas, the equally traditional pastas (of which the spinach tagliatelle with beef bolognese is a must-try), or the grilled items. The latter is home to a wonderfully tender beef short rib with beautifully piped potatoes.
Oh, and while you’re there, why not try the strawberry sorbet with panna cotta and meringue chunks? Or, indeed the chocolate cannoli? We’ll just leave that there...
