We come from a country with a great Italian legacy and we know good italian food, and I must say that Sevilo's is definitely up to the best italian food we've had, not only in Abu Dhabi, but for any international standard.

We went to Sevilo's with my wife for dinner, not knowing the place, and looking for an Italian meal, not expecting much really...And must I say we were HAPPILY IMPRESSED with excelent food, great Australian Shiraz, and a staff that went out of their way to make us feel great the whole night. It turned out to be the best place we could have chosen for a romantic italian dinner in Abu Dhabi!

Even though we arrived at 9.30pm, and it was my wife's birthday the next day, we hadn't planned on staying till 12pm to celebrate, but as the place was sooo nice, and the staff offered (with no previous booking) to prepare something special to celebrate, we ended up staying 'till late. We were surprised with a complimentary birthday-tiramisú, complete with candles and decorated with a birthay greeting!

We had a special menu consisting of a 7 course meal (which we couldn't finish!), for a great price, which included all-you-can-drink wine or beer (we had a great red shiraz). Definitely a bargain! Every dish was better than the one before, and covered many different areas: bruschettas, pizza (italian style), pasta, risotto, meat, etc, and ended with a selection of many italian desserts.

As for the place, it's cozy and nice. Great italian music in the background and super nice ambient. We had dinner inside the saloon, since the weather was unusually cold, but it has a great al-fresco area too. And as we heard, they also have a Seafood Night, wich seems promising!

We will be going back to Sevilo's very soon.

We don't hear much about Sevilo and decided to have lunch there recently. We were pleasantly surprised with the restaurant, so cosy and homely and the al-fresco outdoor area is great.

We ordered the spicy linguini with lobster and a pizza and we were VERY happy with both our meals. The portion is just enough, good value for money and great flavors.

The restaurant was empty when we were there, maybe because it's a Saturday and this hotel attracts the business crowd. This place needs to be promoted more coz the food is great and the place is cosy.

Today we had the Friday Brunch. The selection matches the price. Good selection of sushi, seafood, salad and loved the fresh bread selection. There was also some arabic grills, indian curry, western mix. Was disappointed that there wasn't much Italian on the spread. Deserts were great and there was a small pork section.

The best part about this buffet is the dedicated area for kids. With their own spread of nuggets, chips, pasta and the likes. Candy floss, face painting, wii game console were also available. You could just leave your child there and enjoy your meal. I know most hotels offer this, but the dedicated section which is child friendly is a winner.

Service was good. Staff was attentive, friendly and helpful.

Oh the lebanese solo performance plays and sings some good old numbers to add to the homey Italian feel.

Dine outside when the weather is cool
