I dined with my friends here for a bloggers meet and we had an amazing experience! It is a beautiful restaurant, hidden away in the bustling Deira city centre. The ambiance is very well thought out and well executed it (you wont have to worry about other diners overhearing you or stopping your conversations), the service is good, and the food is great (authentic italian, not too heavy or strong in terms of flavour, very enjoyable). The staff were all nice and very attentive and what I liked the most about them is that they have this “create your own” concept which is really an exciting part and worth each penny spent.
Our table was served with the below dishes,
– Zuppa Di Pomodoro – _ A healthy homemade Creamy Tomato Basil Soup perfect for dunking those crunchy grill cheese in! Ya know what, you don’t need any sides for this as It was rich and full of flavour
– Cherry Tomato & Pesto Burrata — a moist, fresh ball of mozzarella filled with curds and cream — slowly oozes with each delicious forkful. It’s a perfect partner for summer’s first cherry tomatoes. The cheese melts in your mouth and was bursting with flavors at the same time!!! Maybe that’s bias because I love cheese!
– Ricotta Cheese Bread: .a delicious yet quick side dish! Perfectly creamy yet toasted, and will surely impress your taste buds and goes well with any main Italian main course
– Bufalina Base Pizza : A selection of mushrooms, olives, sun dried tomatoes, garlic … and mixed leaf salad, along with shredded mozzarella on top of a tomato and basil base which providing texture and fresh basil leaves to bring some freshness to the dish.
Passion Fruit Iced Tea: Was not pleased with this iced tea, since the flavour of passion fruit was not noticable
Tiramisu – The classic Italian dessert. A layer of creamy custard set atop espresso-soaked ladyfinger and absolutely loved it
nutella pizza – If you’re a fan of Nutella, you can’t go past this dessert pizza and especially when you are in a pizza eatery. Spread with the dark stuff and topped with strawberries, it’s a dessert to die for!
