“Looking for real Italian taste in Dubai by Italian Chef..:)”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Medzo is my favorite Italian restaurant in Dubai..! Well, there are lots of reasons to it. Firstly the atmosphere is really comfy. You can choose to sit either inside or outside. You can go there for a romantic dinner,family gathering or with group of friends. Nonna(grandma) Livia is passion about food. She makes sure everything come out the way you would get it in Italy. and you know what,They serve pork and alcohol here! Use your head,No italian cuisine complete with out pork..!
Selection of ham and salami is good for sharing. Pasta are freshly made and tasty. Variety of wine from Italy.

Come on..You gotta try after reading all these...:)

“The Med by a pool”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Well presented food, in an Italian slanted Mediterranean style. The menu is now a little formal, not much room for self expression, but the cured meats are just heaven. Can be noisy if sitting on the terrace on a Sunday during the neighbouring 'Movies under the stars' night, but Livia is a gracious hostess and the wines are always lovely.

“Authentic Italian”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I would say this was quite authentic, tasty pizza and pasta. Very quiet, probably better with a group.
Not sure it was different enough to go back. There is so much choice in Dubai
We parked under the hotel instead of the pyramid, quite a walk!

“Good quality, very close to the real italian food.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I was in this restaurant one month ago.
The quality of the food was very good and really similar to those you can find in Italy.
The menu is various and sophisticated (maybe too much...).
The hall and the furniture are charming and the atmosphere is adequate for a "class restaurant". Definitely it is not a "trattoria"....
A special mention for the quality of the olive oil: very good !
Cannot comment prices, because I was guest.
This represent a good choise if you want to try the italian cuisine at high level.
