    El pan y la burrata están espectacular. Los cocteles con alcohol muy buenos y los meseros increíblemente atentos y serviciales pero su nivel de inglés es cuestionable, así que cuesta comunicarse. Los platos principales honestamente bastante promedio, caro para lo que ofrece. Eso sí, celebré mi cumpleaños y no puedo terminar de explicar el nivel de detalles que tuvieron conmigo. En atención 10 de 10

    Perfect restaurant for a casual dinner date, lighting was not too dark. Bartender makes the best aperol spritz in town, often get served watered down versions of it at other restaurants. We ordered the seafood linguine, carbonara and a pizza. Pasta was cooked perfectly, sauces were thick and flavours were rich. We wanted to try different flavours of pizza but were worried it would be too much food, so our server recommended having 2 flavours on one pizza. Worked out perfectly for us. We also received complimentary lemon sorbet after our meals.

    Food was amazing. Pizza was delicious and the focaccia bread before the food arrives was unreal. As we had a vegan friend and there are only few little options, it was very nice how they accomodate my friend's request making the truffle risotto on a vegan version. Elena, our waitress went above and behiond with her suggestions and her perfect customer service skills.

    The food is good. So is the service and everything. But if you serve tosted bread that makes a lot of crumbles you should clean the table between the dishes and not put the desert menue on drops of meat sorce. We liked the place very much

    Without any doubt the worst Italian food I had in Dubai. The seafood risotto tasted like it was done with ketchup, ravioli were swimming in a tick layer of butter; pizza was edible and arancini too. Bread sticks from the pork platter were either old or badly baked. Miserable atmosphere, Hellen the waiters tried to make the evening pleasant with her smile and service. Unfortunately the all experience was awful. A shame.

    Really great food, nice atmosphere and excellent/friendly staff. Great service too. Staff asked for allergies, was around if needed and quick in serving the food and clearing the table, but not to fast - so we had a great evening. On the evening before we went to Izakaya (Japanese Restaurant also in JW Marriott Marquis Hotel and recommendable) and the restaurant manager told us about the Italian Restaurant. So we wanted to try it out and were very happy we did.

    The portions are large and if you are just two people you can ask them to serve you smaller portions which cuts down the price and allows you to try more variety. We were lucky to have a server who suggested this to us which made our experience more wonderful. Fabulous place.

    We received a very warm welcome from the front of house staff and the restaurant manager came to speak with us and walked us around the restaurant explaining about the live cooking and the buffet set up. It was the restaurants special Italian Fiesta Night and it did not disappoint. Food was fantastic. We had a lobster spaghetti dish specially prepared for us by the chef. He then brought it to our table. All staff were very polite and friendly. We had a wonderful evening here.
