This restaurant’s take-out cousin has been on the speed dial of Dubai’s pizza-lovers for a few years now and the chain’s expansion cross the city is testament to its popularity. Don’t expect to find modern twists or fusion creations here – 800 Pizza is about authenticity of both the ingredients used and the recipes followed. Despite a handful of unambitious appetisers and salads as well as a small selection of pasta dishes (including gluten-free options, we were pleased to note), we’d recommend sticking to the eponymous pizzas. Dough is freshly-prepared on the premises every day while buffalo milk cheese, rich and creamy in taste and texture, is imported directly from Italy. Toppings are bold and well-combined, with red cabbage and walnut or salmon and zucchini varieties being the standouts. Follow up with a crispy Sicilian cannoli, and this is a decent mid-priced stab at genuine Italian dining.
