“Great food! Great service! Great decor!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

The service here was top class! As soon as we were seated we were served appetizers (dips and bruschettas) that they kept refilling for us. The portions were very good and the pizza is a must try!

Went with a friend during ramadan which might be why there was no reservation needed and only two or three other tables seated. The hostess, servers and manager were all very polite and attentive. The chiante classico, gabbiano, was perfect, and all the appetizers were very good. We ordered for courses. The burrata was good, although I have nothing to compare it to, but it tasted like a softer, more mild buffalo mozzarella. The lobster ravioli was ok, but didn't stand out too much. The venison pizza was also pretty good, but what sold me was the roasted chicken...delicious. my friend ordered the veal of which I'm not a fan, but he loved it. Also, the chef sent out a complimentary fried ravioli appetizer and espressos which were awesome. The place was quite classy and I would recommend giving it a try.

Tried Villa Toscana over the weekend. The food was amazing. The staff were excellent couldn't do enough for us, they had separated an area especially for us as it was for a wedding reception. They made sure we all had drinks all the time and catered to everyone needs. Just want to say a huge thank you to Murad and the team for the amazing level of service they gave us. Will definitely return. This has to be the BEST Italian I have had in UAE.

“Authentic Italian cuisine”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

*Quality of food: truly Italian, there is nothing I can complain about, the dishes was very classic as well as very creative, especially the signature pizza Fiorentina with honey nutty flavour (taste the best when it's hot, not recommended for take-away despite the fact that it's available in the pizza take-away menu). For vegetarians, the artichoke ricotta ravioli can absolutely be a great choice (smell very meaty but turn out to be a veggie option). For appetizer, my fav one is the fritto misto di calamari which incl. lightly buttery cooked prawn n crispy calamary ring, the best way to enjoy it is squeezing some lemon juice over the dish n dip them with mayo milk =) For main course, my friends had the florentine steak which was perfectly cooked Medium, it came out sizzling in hot pan with grilled vegetables as side dishes n accompany with steak jus, look so juicy! After that, although I was already incredibly full (cannot even walk properly anymore), when the Tiramisu came out, I still finished it because it looked so tempting. And the orange choco ice-cream accompanied with it was so great too..
*Menu variety: plenty of options, even for vegetarians. Too many great options that I didnt even know what to start with.. and dessert menu is also full with Italian classic dessert such as Tiramisu, variations of gelato, etc. Only one minor thing i notice is the menu should available in Arabic as well.
*Service: knowledgeable staff with helpful explainations of the dishes, elegant in the way they talk too "that's my pleasure", top-of-the-world chefs, n the coolest thing is you can actually see how they cook n place the food on the dishes thru the open-show kitchen.
*Price: very affordable for a fine dining restaurant. Approximately 500 Dirhams a dinner for 2 ppl, excl. alcoholic beverage.
*Ambience: Aristocratic decor with wooden furnitures, quiet atmosphere with candle lights which will be perfect for someone looking for a romantic dinner with little privacy!
