Wonderful place to enjoy a meal and watch the fountains

This is a great reasonably priced restaurant and if you get a table outside during early evening you can relax and enjoy the fantastic water fountain spectacle underneath the Burj Khalifa. The food and service are both first class.

Service was very attentive. Good staff will keep their eyes up and scanning. We asked for several things such as Internet connection, cheese, etc. and never had to "chase down" staff. The pizza was excellent, very like that served in Venice, thin but very flavorful. Cheese is actually from Parma and very fresh. Families were having fun. Location was excellent... More

The location of this place is the best, in front of the beautiful fountain, food is good, resonate prices, staff might not be in their best mood that day!! But overall it is a reasonable choice

As always Carluccio's never fails to delight. The food was almost as good as the one at St Christopher's Place. Great views of the fountains from the restaurant at Dubai Mall

Have been to Carluccio's in several venues and despite my best intentions never have any room left for dessert! This time was no exception. Great view and service. The veal sausage risotto was perfect. The butternut squash tortelli was a bit thicker and more al dente than it should be, but the flavour was lovely.

I can't thank the team at Carluccios Dubai Mall enough, the food and service was exceptional. I have often eaten in Carluccios in London, but the food and service here was something else.

Really disappointed by the experience at this restaurant. The location is brilliant right next to the fountains but there the good parts end. The service was terrible, we constantly had to chase even to get an order, the food took way too long, was incorrect, some was cold and some that hot it had obviously come from the microwave, no...
