Time Out Says

Of the multitude of casual food spots in JLT, few are worth the hassle of its infuriating one-way system. Nais Italian Kitchen, however, is one of the exceptions. Minimally decorated in clean whites, greys and green, the space verges on cramped giving it a lack of privacy on busier evenings, but you can counter this by bagging a table by one of the floor-to-ceiling windows with picturesque views over the lake. The menu is concise but not limited, including burgers, herb-crusted salmon and chicken Milanese in addition to traditional pizza and pasta. The bread basket is a genuine highlight – crispy fried, vegetable bread flecked with onion and courgette and with that deliciously tempting freshly-baked aroma – as is the creamy burrata that bursts with a smooth, runny centre. The lasagne comes covered in rich sauce and bubbling browned cheese and the small cubes of homemade gnocchi taste as fresh as promised with just the right amount of bite and plenty of sauce, which (if on the salty side) is punchy and has a subtle nuttiness. An ideal venue for a low-key lunch or dinner.
