Few days back we enjoyed our lunch from Mercato Centrale and it was a food delivery which was perfectly on time and the packaging was fantastic with all packets separate and most of the dishes packet in cardboard boxes which personally I loved the most.

So it was a pure vegetarian no egg meal and I can't even explain how delicious and tempting each and everything was.

We ordered and quickly galloped below dishes...

1 Party Box 30cm - Margherita and vegetarian pizza

2 Pasta - penne arrabbiata and penne with classic pesto

1 Salad - mercato salad

1 sandwich - tomato mozzarella sandwich

2 Dessert – raspberry Pannacotta + strawberry Vegan tart

Each and everything was fresh, warm and absolutely delicious. I must say this place serves amazing Italian cuisine. If you are in or around Burjuman then do visit this place and enjoy a sumptuous meal.

Located in DIFC this authentic abode lavishly celebrates classic italian cusine with such simplicity. Most of the ingredients used are in fact straight from Italy which just adds to the authenticity.

The flavours are seductively intense and yet beautifully balanced and boasts of all things yummy so it’s difficult to pick a favourite dish,

With walls stacked with bottles of olive oil infused with aromatic spices ans Oh and the freshly bread and cookies.

Lets Talk food now:
They serve good english breakfast so order a Full English Breakfast with Caffe Latte. Such an amazing platter with Ham, Eggs , Grilled tomato, fried mushroom and toast.

I love the Burrato Cheese with cherry tomato and balsamic is just the perfect appetizer for an italian meal.

The most loved dish was the Lasagna.It was a pleasing version made with ground beef and creamy bechemel.

Also we tried the Spaghetti Arrabiata which was good and classic.
With kids its never a miss to order the Margherita with Basil . Loved it.
For drinks we had the Caffe Latter and Mint Lemonade.
Desserts
The Tiramisu- It was very good
Strawberry Cake - Cake folded in with strawberry jam and covered with toasted almonds.

Just in case you’re stumped for choice, the staff is extremely courteous and will help you choose the right dishes to suit your palate and your cravings. The Host Mr. Robert and Jessie very attentive and friendly.

you’re headed here, do enjoy your hearty meal with la familia. on the dreamy outdoor patio. After all, it is the perfect weather to dine under the stars!

Mind blown! Beautiful cafe located at Difc gate. Everything is soo perfect. Interiors are calming. Tried the eggs with bacon and bacon buns. It was amazing. Orange juice was fresh. Service was quick. Best part is they are very reasonable. Recommended for good breakfast and meetings.

Every time I’ve walked in this place to buy a coffee and some breakfast or a lunch, it’s taken absolutely forever, and I’m usually witnessing staff argue with each other over who should make the granola...

These guys have plenty of competition in DIFC for coffees and snacks, yet the service for walk in / takeaway customers can be awful
