It was ok

Visited Ronda a few times and it has always delivered a similar result. Good appetisers, ok pizzas, good desserts but service needs a polish.

On our recent trip to Dubai (March 2015) the culinary low-light for us was Ronda Locatelli, which had a pushy waiter and very average Italian food. Our local cheap and cheerful Italian at home is better. The food was no better than you'd find in a high-street Strada in the UK and Carluccio’s serves better food. Definitely wouldn't revisit, although... More

Best pizza we ever ate, excellent ambiance, excellent service. The menu was varied, we even found Italian personnel. The cook is from Naples and he is an artist.

This restaurant serve's more than pizza. The Calamari, carpaccio and Ossobucco we're perfect. Sitting outside was perfect, and the service was perfect. A good place to eat Italian food in Dubai.

My husband and I enjoyed our Italian meal here at Ronda Locatelli. The restaurant was lovely and quiet and tastefully furnished. It had a lovely atmosphere although was a wee bit dark. The food was delicious and well presented.

We had dinner with some friends and had a chance to try the local menu selection. In the beginning we were a bit hesitant, but it turns out to... More
