Lives up to Carluccio's standards

Good value, good menu especially the daily set menu. The food was excellent & the service quick at a very busy time in the evening.

Open, comfortable ambiance, with a window or balcony close view of Dubai Fountain. Highlight was the prompt service, the fastest I've experienced in Dubai (our soup service would beat McDonalds in timing! From the warm welcome immediately on entering, to the caring and personal attention a the table, and the visits by the restaurant manager, all made for a pampered... More

Shame they use the name Carluccios as the standard has gone down so much here in Dubai Mall. The service was poor, once they brought the main course 4 different staff came to ask if the food was okay which is totally off putting. They don't listen and you have to repeat yourself serveral times. The set menu was disappointing... More

Very good meal this evening at Carluccios. Restaurant was very busy and fortunately we had booked in advance. No waiting problems with the order being taken or the food arriving shortly thereafter. Food was excellent too. Would recommend

Visited the place for a nice afternoon lunch and must say it was good. The view was amazing, as you are right next to the Fountains (even saw the Fountains show while eating) service was also great, but food is left for debate. The food was not bad, however it lacked true Italian flavours for me. All items that were... More

As per Carluccios elsewhere, dependable Italian food and decent staff, with a small shop/deli with high end Italian ingredients for sale.

This well known chain of restaurants was introduced to the UAE a few years ago. The outlet at Dubai Mall has an excellent view of the Dubai Fountains and I have been here often. Service is polite while the menu includes the usual range of Italian cuisine - pasta, lasagne, pizza, risotto, seafood, etc. as well as desserts. One does... More

We went with fixed menu options where you get two items for the equivalent of about $20 (78 aed). We had soup and lasagna, and calamari and lasagna. The food was very good with large servings. They offer quite a few other fixed menu options and lunch specials, and I also noticed their prices overall are in line with mid-range... 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.
