“Great Italian”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Exceptional italian food in Abu Dhabi. Pleasantly surprised that they had fresh seasonal truffles, which made for an authentic italian experience. Staff was a bit difficult regarding seating and tried to give us a table near other customers when the restaurant was practically empty. Otherwise, excellent experience.

“One of the best in Abu Dhabi - Must go”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

The food is amazing and the staff are very attentive to your needs. Its an Abu Dhabi must try.
They have a good selection of wines and even though it is an Italian restaurant, they have a interesting menu.
Try it ..let me know

“One of my favorites in Abu Dhabi”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

An excellent blended cuisine with an Italian focus. Great bar and bar tender and wonderful staff. This is in the Fairmont Hotel, lower floor. A nice, "nice place out" for business or couples.

“Fingerlicking good”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Although not inexpensive this was by far the best Italian food I had eaten since a long time outside Italy. Everything was very tasty and especially the Spaghetti alla vongole was superb.
Staff very attentive and friendly and I got the recepy of he Spaghetti alla so was very happy indeed. If you can afford the prices this really is worthwhile to eat in a nice ambience.

“Varied menu, great little bar, warm welcome”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We ate at Frankie's on our first night, for a quick pizza, and for a 4 course menu on New Year's Eve. Loved the decor, the bar was relaxed, and had warm vibe, and the staff were lovely. A special mention to Coco who looked after us (and all his guests) so well.
