“Best pizza ever outside Italy”
Review of Sicilia Restaurant

Sicilia Restaurant

Cuisines: Italian

Good for: Families with children, Romantic
Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: Rustic and simple home-style Italian cooking with a Sicilian edge is what this unpretentious family restaurant with its wood fire oven offers you. Sicilia embraces a "Grotto" philosophy of "cook what is fresh today". Guests will be forgiven for thinking that the authentic cuisine coupled with a fine bottle of wine are imported straight from a sunny, countryside village home in Sicily.

Probably because I haven't had Italian food for the last 10 days, I really enjoyed Margherita pizza and Peroni beer at Sicilia!
Anyway it is not my first time here. I have also tried some pasta in the past. It is easy to understand that behind the fires there is an Italian chef!!! Very good service as well from Alexia, the restaurant manager, and all the staff. I will definetely come back again.

Located at the Ibn Battuta gate hotel, which in itself is a marvellous structure. Interiors are wonderful and has a splendid feel to it.

As for the restaurant, one can sit either indoors or outdoors (by outdoors i mean in the central hall with wonderful overhead metalic chandeliers)

What stands out is the service, very friendly, visiting the table at regular intervals to check if we need something (without being annoying at all)..

Food is great, the sea food dishes are worth a mention certainly and so is the pasta..

if your choice of pasta is not on the menu, one can ask for the same to be prepared and in my case was complied with, which was great..

Food: The sea bream is out of this world! The dish is very stylish, and has a great taste combination of rosmarine, apple, olive, sun dried tomato and light white fresh fish. I can warmly recommend.

Price: The pastas are around 70AED, and the fish-dishes 120-140AED. Not very expensive and you can use the Enterteiner vouchers there (2 for 1)

Ambience: not perfect but quite nice. It does have an Italian touch.

Service: Fabulous. The chef came to the table, and also there is plenty of waiters.

Location: in Ibn Battuta Gate hotel; next to Ibn Battuta Mall.
