So I don't like the food court. But this experience was really bad. Unmotivated staff. Bad and boring foot. Not tasty and nit good looking. And for all this too expensive.
What a waste. They only want your best....
Thanks but not again.

There is a new Al Forno in the Dalma Mall I like to write about. The decoration is well done, it looks nice and clear/clean and you feels almost like in Italy. Helping is also the not loud italian background music. The pizzas are nice - way better as those "American Style" junk you get in certain franchise restaurants. Salad was fresh and crisp, even one meat dish we tried was positively taken. And all that without burning the usual hole in your wallet here in UAE...

I recently went to the Il Forno site in Abu Dhabi Mall. People recomended it and said its the best site for pasta and pizza in AD. Ihave to say though i was really surprised by this as I experienced it differently! Food quality was poor and service was worse. Staff very noisy, bumping into me while we were eating, etc. Not recommended unless you are really hungry, and there is no Mcdonalds close bye...

Very expansive as compared to the quality of the food. It was in Abu Dhabi Mall food court, but relatively more expansive than other neighbors

Even though a chain they serve the best pizza and all of your favourite Italian dishes in Abu Dhabi. Very reasonably priced and high quality dishes. Best option in mall.
