While staying in the hotel for holiday, we found ourselves going to this restaurant every day either for lunch or dinner. Service is impeccable, waiters remember you and greet you nicely. Atmosphere is lovely as well. Sometimes there is live Italian music in the evenings. Food is amazing. There is a large selection of pasta dishes, all of which are... More

The best restaurant in the best hotel in Abu Dhabi. Everything is excellent in here, but just pricy.

After all the reviews we were a little bit unsure of our reservation but we had a great time. We had a party 0f 11 so they immediately gave us a private room. Great view of the seafront. Service was exceptional. We had the antipasto to share which was great. So was the grilled calamari. For mains, my veal cheek... More

Each time we come back, the chef looks after us very well. The elegant surroundings make the perfect setting for a business dinner or get together with friends. I do recommend the pasta and the home made ice creams and sherbets. No problem in extending a recommendation!

It used to be awesome. Food and atmosphere is great. Prices have increased, service has decreased. We waited 30 minutes for coffee. Since that time, two false orders were brought to our table and I went to the kitchen to ask if we serve ourselves for coffee. Seven minutes later, coffee was delivered. Our food arrived after waiting for 45... More

Creamy burrata, al dente pasta - it's no wonder they've won awards. With an outdoor terrace, its the perfect spot for lunch with a beautiful view of the beach on a warm, sunny Arabian day. $$$ Bookings recommended for dinner: 02690 7999. 4NOMS.
