It is figuratively impossible to call yourself a foodie and not melt at the thought of freshly prepared, handmade, authentic Italian pasta.
That’s why the foodies of Dubai, and there are a lot of us, are about to rejoice at the news of a brand-new Italian trattoria coming to DIFC, specialising in – you guessed it – handmade pasta.
Ravioli & Co will be serving up freshly made pasta, prepared daily by an in-house sfoglina (which roughly translates to “pasta-making matriarch”), and is opening up in mid-August at DIFC’s Burj Daman. It’s aiming to be reminiscent of an Italian home, and intends to provide a true flavour of Italy.
While this licensed eatery will specialise in pasta, it will also be offering up traditional menus of shared and individual lunch and dinner dishes, as well as lower calorie and gluten-free pasta varieties.
What has us most excited, though, is the prospect of cooking classes being hosted at the restaurant, so we can take the secret recipe home with us.
