The food is good but it misses the "amazing", as this restaurant is in the Emirates palace I expect that little extra, the one when I am done with my food I go wow that was very good italian food. And I know what I want, my sister lives in Rome so I get to sample pretty good italian food

The arrival is really royal, driving towards the main lobby a great experience. The restaurant had 3 tables taken inclusive our on a Thursday night, that was not a good sign.

The place to go for a healthy seafood dinner by the sea at the Emirates Palace. Very attentive service but not annoying.

very disappointing .. we had lasagne and gnocchi .. the food was mediocre, mainly bland, very overpriced, service was rushed and without a hint of class and sadly our servers had attitude, especially the maître d .. even the chocolate fondant was overcooked and not fondant (runny) inside at all .. this venue doesn't even deserve a long review .....
