Staff are so slow, unprofessional and impolite! They literally do not want to work, they give you this yellow smile and their service sucks. The manager who is a filipino named "Kevin" has no idea about managing a restaurant. He is useless, he never cares about his restaurant, or his staff attitude. One thing for sure, I WILL NEVER EVER... More

This used to one of my fave restaurants for Rissotto ai gamberi. So any trip to MCC would be a reason to do lunch or dinner here. We have been going there since MCC started. However, I have been so disappointed the last 2 times I was there that I finally decided to put up a review here. Last time... More

Excellent food, slow service, the carpaccio was very good, the lamb chops was very tasty as well as the pasta, even the pizza was above the average, I would go there again.

The manager who attend us he have no idea about how to handle our problems. He just ignore us. We are really disappointed with the service and our... More

We visited this restaurant at about 12:00pm and we were the only customers. The character is nice and it had a cosy charm to it. The food was delicious and not too over priced, and as we were the only customers, service was quick, and the waitress was friendly. I would definitely come here again.

Al Forno in Mirdif City Center, is an Italian-style restaurant, with kitchen and wood-burning oven, the dough is well made and even cooking I found it perfect. It also offered a small appetizer with olive... More

We went there after admiring the mall Italian restaurant list and it wasn't the best idea. we didn't find much trouble to find a table, but we found a troubles with the staff that they don't understand English and from wanting to chit chat only. We needed time to get their attention to order as they were gathering and chatting... More
