“Fab food for a fab night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

When looking for a nice place to eat our eye fell on the Armani Ristorante. We where with a party of 4 and it felt like we where all kings, every single one.
The menu was superb, perfectly cooked meat and the right wines with every dish.
After diner the manager was kind enough to give us a tour and after some gifts we went home with another great memory.

When you go, don't expect normal or cheap, you pay for the quality that you eat. It's the perfect mix of italian en french food.

“Best food and perfect atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I'm not exaggerating but this restaurant is making the best food in this entire universe, no discussion.
I recommend trying the menus (truffle menu) with wine pairing - it's incredible!

Regarding the atmosphere, I doubt that any other restaurant can beat this.
You are in the biggest tower of the world and it was designed by Armani, what more can you ask for? You can see into the kitchen which makes the place very warm and "appetizing".

The service is also just fantastic. They care about every detail and they have plenty of available staff. The staff is very attentive, you couldn't ask for more.

“A tasty Italian Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Set in a typical Armani design ambience.
The personnel was very friendly, polite and they welcomed us in Italian (We are Italian)
We opted for a la carte menu, for appetizer I choose Culatello served with figs caramellized with Porto and a pomegranate granatina. My wife opted instead for the Pappardelle with Wild Boar Ragu, both were delicious and the pasta were perfectly cooked.
We continued with the main, I choose the Wagyu fillet suggested by our waiter Claudio. It was server with Foie Gras, black truffle, mushroom and mashed potatoes. It was a perfect dish!
Also the veal with pumpkin cream, chestnuts and Barbera sauce was impeccable.

For dessert we took La Sfera and Montebianco, mayve a little bit too elaborated but wonderful in taste.

As a final note, I tasted what it is the probably best espresso in Dubai.

FromItalian foodies like us, this is for sure a excellent Italian restaurant who can esialy compete with famous restaurants in Italy.

“Top of the Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

They sat us at a table already set for two next to the window. When we sat down an attendant put a small pillow on our lower back for comfort. The food was phenomenal and the service equal to the food quality. Only grip was we didn't know what many of the items were on the menu but it didn't matter cause it was good anyway. The view of the Dubai Fountain was a wonderful addition to the already excellent decor.
