An explosion of restaurants has recently surfaced in Dubai and it looks like my old rounds are out of date as either the restaurants have closed or some have been replaced with a completely new concept, but regardless, there is a new and improved one here Summary of my favorite Italian restaurants in Dubai. Since my last recap, there have been more celebrated chefs who have actively participated in the diverse Dubai food scene. This is interesting as it gives us more options and some great dishes.
The Craftsman – This restaurant has a new location in the Waldorf Astoria DIFC and I was extremely pleased with the impressive list of the menu. The interiors are very attractive and the dishes are juicy. I had the pleasure of trying a few pasta, including the Burrata and their heavenly ones Tiramisu what I still long for! Also, if you are planning on visiting the point of sale, order the truffle pizza, it’s divine.

Scalini – One of my old favorite places, especially since I tried it in London and Dubai and never had a mediocre experience. The food here is great and certainly a bit different from the original London restaurant as the menu here has been adapted to cater to the local crowd. I prefer to eat here in winter because the outside terrace is beautiful. A must here is this Beef Stefanoand my favorite Funghi Risotto. Scalini has some tuff competitions as it is surrounded by some great restaurants, but it has still managed to charm its guests for years.

Basta – Located in the Renaissance Hotel, Basta is my new favorite restaurant, especially since my culinary experience has exceeded my expectations. I wish I had come here on an empty stomach so I could enjoy more of their food. The Wood oven pizzas are my favorite, don’t forget to try this ricotta and Truffle pizza along with a lush portion of the carbonara. Basta is certainly new to the rest of the restaurants here, but when it comes to serving quality food they’ve got it.

Gia – When I first heard about this place I was not convinced that it could survive since it was in a mall, but to my surprise, the location next to the exquisite food was the strong point of this wonderful restaurant. I tried recently Tiramisu and even baked their pizza at home since they launched theirs DIY boxes and I can’t stress how great both dishes were. I love to visit this restaurant in the evening as you have a great view of the dancing fountain.

Alici – Located in Bluewaters this is the famous sister property Il Borro Tuscan bistro in Al Naseem. If you are a fan of southern Italy this place will particularly appeal to you as it has a huge influence from the Amalfi Coast and aims to bring a little piece of Italy to Dubai. Il Borro has already won people’s hearts. So why not try it? You will also thank me for recommending it to be absolutely delicious Spaghetti Alla Chittarra PastaI just wish I could indulge in one right away.

Torno Subito – If there’s a cook like that Massimo Bottura You don’t question who is associated with a restaurant! His restaurant in Italy was named the fifth best restaurant in the world and of course his restaurant has also received a Michelin star. When I heard of this restaurant opening, I was overjoyed and since then I’ve had countless opportunities to dine there. The food here carries the legacy of this genius chef and is a must see. Don’t forget to get into this tiramisu.
W, Palm Jumeirah. 04 245 5555
Cinque – In addition to being a party destination, Five Palm Jumeirah is known for great food. After having an amazing dining experience at Maiden Shanghai, I went to see Cinque and was not disappointed. The chefs take great care in preparing some delicious dishes.
Five, Palm Jumeirah. 04 455 9989
Cipriani – If you haven’t heard from Cipriani, you live under a rock. DIFC sure has a lot of great restaurants and Ciprani is one of them. It is an honor to eat and see among the elite here, the menu seems promising and the quality of the dishes lives up to its name. You’ve been in the hospitality business since 1931 and if you bet with that long history it won’t be put down. A must here is this Vanilla meringue and the creamy one Burrata.
DIFC, Gate Village 3. 04 347 0003
Marea – Another DIFC contender for my roundup is Marea, originally from New York, who turns simple Italian food into extraordinary dishes. Chef Michael White is very popular, but his food is still exceptional, from caviar to pasta. You won’t regret ordering it. My advice don’t skip this Pansotti pasta and the Tiramisu. The decor is chic and sophisticated and adds to the overall brilliant experience.
