This was recommended to me by an Italian foodie so I had high hopes. Unfortunately, the restaurant failed to live up to it. Based in one of the main hotels, the restaurant has a posh Art Deco feel to it. It is inside which is a shame given the lovely weather in Dubai, you are sat in a rather dark... More

I would have dinner here every Friday night as a child, now, 10 years later, it's still the same. Not in a bad way. It's good Italian food, the service is excellent, the dessert is exceptional. All-around a great experience.

I would not be averse to trying this place again if they made a few changes because I think it could be quite lovely. Unfortunately, our experience was not so great. We stepped n and my first thought was that this was my kind of restaurant... plush-looking, wood, nice fabrics. I like this kind of decor. And if they could... More

Nice hotel, good location and the service was excellent from Toon. As it was my wife's birthday, a nice table had been put aside for us outside. Probably the last time outside until winter arrives as it was getting a bit warm. Food was great and the place was quiet being the middle of the week. Thank you Toon.

A truly lovely place, outside and inside. Some good soft Italian music, Italian chef, partially Italian staff and great Italian food. Ingredients are always of high level, and everything on your plate is just so tasteful. Everything is being taken care of, no doubts. Don't start eating the bread or you'll get addicted....!!! And the sorbets...are just more then delicious!... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
