We found the restaurant quite by accident while looking for somewhere to grab a relatively quick lunch. This Italian eatery surprised us pleasantly- the menu selection is very good, staff is attentive and the food is excellent! The only downside is that they are not licensed, so a glass of wine with your meal is not an option.

I went with a friend for lunch. The place looks cute, but not really like a restaurant, more like a bar. Staff looks little confused and there was a barista behind the bar, with an electric racket trying to kill flies, quiet funny actually!!! We order a meter of pizza , half with bresaola half with prosciutto (turkey) e funghi.... More

I have been traveling to dubai for a few years now. My friends have always tried to impress by taking me to very expensive restaurants where the service and decorations have been nice but average food quality. This time an Italian friend of mine asked me if I wanted to try real Italian food, which I agreed. As to my... More

This place is one you must try, his Marina location is near our home and we always come back. Good food (the spaghetti with gambero di masara is a MUST) the pizzas are also nice by meters. The only problem is they are not licensed! Nice terrace also for the cooler months of the year.

Okay Italian menu, but not exceptional. They accept entertainer vouchers. Non alcohol restaurant. Moments from Grosvenor house beach shuttle drop. Great Pizzas and will deliver minimum 2 pizzas.

We ordered 1 asparagus and 1 mushroom soup to begin with. Funnily enough,the waitress had no idea which was which. Didn't matter though, they tasted bland and uninspired. Next came the pizza. Bad base.. it tasted like manakeesh bread. The veggie pizza simply had a couple of onion rings and zucchini slices. I ordered a veggie pasta in pink sauce...... 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.
