Fantastic Dinner, amazing Restaurant, superb service

Not been there for over a year and still the same team. Very friendly welcome and the food was just fantastic. Started with Carpaccio followed a Pizza. Loved the food and went back for a second visit. The bill for 4 came to AED 950. Yes on my next visit to Dubai I will be back.

I was invited to my friends farewell Party at TECOM, and my friend had all different kind of Pizzas delivered on time to his place, and i remember that there was no dish with any food on it. Certo is a great taste for Pizza and Pasta.

It is an old favorite. Nice food, nice casual but trendy atmosphere. Good selection of wines. Nice pizzas and interesting starters. On this visit I had a side dish as a starter ( asparagus and mushrooms - great!) pizza as main course. Very friendly and efficient staff. Nice atmosphere. Just lovely....

Nice crowd, mostly young, few families who happily gave their kids to a play room. Few live cooking stations with pizza, pasta, BBQ,... More
