“a real dinner by candlelight”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

A historical place in Milano since a long time, and of course a long story here in Dubai. Fourteen years in UAE is commensurate to seventy years in Italy for a restaurant. But what there's today? Bice is in a unique position, at the beginning of Jbr, the seafront long walk with shops and coffee bars. Here the main room is huge, with big tables distant one to each other. The first impact is so strange: totally in the darkness, i mean, the lamps are positioned at the minimum. For giving you an example, I could not see the fish in the basket a few feet away from me. however, this is perfect for a romantic dinner by candlelight. I tried a good antipasto, fried and also my seafood spaghetti was good, i mean, in Italy you can eat a dish like that in every corner, also in a poor small restaurant. the portion of the pasta was big, maybe for someone to big. that's a plus for me, feel like to be cooked at home, but for a woman for example, is not possible. the service was normal, and the atmosphere so quiet e calm. luckily the piano at the entrance was empty, cause with a pianist melody i could sleep on the table. great respect for all the name, but a great restaurant, especially here in dubai, is another thing. Ideal for family dinner, or business lunch - perfect for an italian guy, the miss his land. expensive but good. nothing else.

“Personality Disorder?”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Lets be clear, its a classy venue & with lovely views to the palm. But this place has a personality disorder. Bar or restaurant? We went for cocktails & were seated at an outdoor table that was set for dinner. We did look at the menu which looked to be a sub-set of Bice restaurant downstairs. How odd. No “bar snacks” or "bar food" as such, just a restaurant menu. The cocktails were great but we left somewhat confused!

“Pricey, but good”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

The food was really good. A bit pricy, when compared to other outlets. The restaurant was quiet when I visited.

“Quality Italian restaurant”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

My second visit and as great as before. A lot of Dubai restaurants are glitzy and trying to be different. This is a traditional high quality Italian restaurant with great food, impeccable service and a relaxed atmosphere. Top quality piano player in the background. Recommend the spinach ravioli with truffle sauce.

“Food and Service is outstanding !”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

How I found the taste, it is very personal so I can not explain very well. but I like everything here.
In Italy I found almost nothing tasty as here.
The service is impeccable.
Many staff come from Philippine where its hospitality is very famous.
If I go to Dubai again, I have my dinner here again.
