Been coming to Dubai for 10 years and was quite excited at booking the Armani Ristorante. What a disappointment. There was no atmosphere, the place was totally pretentious, the food was average at best. Don't waste your time or money , far better places to enjoy your evening.

My Daughter and I spent a wounderful evening at Ristorante. We had the truffle tasting menu. Every course was georgeous. The chef came out during the course of the evening to ask if everything was to our liking. We were very lucky to have a table next to the window which allows you to watch the Dubai Fountains during the meal.

We just liked everything... From the atmosphere till the food...!!!
The menu had a great variety... Not the usual things you find anywhere... And the taste was... As we may expect from a restaurant with this kaliber... As good as in top restaurants in Italy!!
The staff were very nice and friendly.. We were there also a few times with our little boy... Who talked and asked a lot... But all the time... As friendly and nice to him... (And us..?!?)

When looking for a nice place to eat our eye fell on the Armani Ristorante. We where with a party of 4 and it felt like we where all kings, every single one.
The menu was superb, perfectly cooked meat and the right wines with every dish.
After diner the manager was kind enough to give us a tour and after some gifts we went home with another great memory.

When you go, don't expect normal or cheap, you pay for the quality that you eat. It's the perfect mix of italian en french food.

I'm not exaggerating but this restaurant is making the best food in this entire universe, no discussion.
I recommend trying the menus (truffle menu) with wine pairing - it's incredible!

Regarding the atmosphere, I doubt that any other restaurant can beat this.
You are in the biggest tower of the world and it was designed by Armani, what more can you ask for? You can see into the kitchen which makes the place very warm and "appetizing".

The service is also just fantastic. They care about every detail and they have plenty of available staff. The staff is very attentive, you couldn't ask for more.
