There are hundreds of Italian restaurants in Dubai, simply because Italian cuisine is probably the most popular in the world- it’s plain yet sophisticated, has many different options and matches almost any taste. Therefore we always have so many choices when it gets to Italian. How to pick the best place though ? All of them claim to be authentic and serve you purest Italian experience. I’ve personally been to several dozens of them and can share my opinion now. Roberto’s is definitely one of the top places to visit in Dubai.
It is located in cosmopolitan DIFC area- time passes, but the Financial Center stays the midpoint of high class restaurants and lounges in the city. With it’s art galleries, creative atmosphere and famous dinning rooms DIFC perfectly inscribes elegant Roberto’s.
It is a one floor placement, divided into two large rooms – the lounge area, with comfortable chairs and low tables and the restaurant area itself with the white table cloth kind of dining. Both are the rooms you can order same dishes. Also they posses a beautiful terrace with some stunning Burj Khalid’s- Downtown views, which is a very popular place for per dinner cocktails and after-work drinks. With its floor-to-celling window the restaurant looks bright and you have a chance to enjoy mesmerizing panorama while dining or lunching.
By the way lunch and dinner here have a slightly different menu, namely some of the delicatessen, such as oysters, caviar or some sorts of carpaccio will be available only from 7 pm. However there are plenty of choices for lunch as well. High-end Italian dishes in their finest form is what you will find here. The selection is really wide, for this kind of fine- dining house. My personal favorite are : scampi tail with sweet and sour cucumber, green apple and puffed amaranth ; king crab salad with quinoa, apple and pistachios; homemade tortelli filled with spinach and ricotta in white sauce with truffles and Musti’s – the famous pizza with burrata, rockets and datterini tomatoes which probably deserves a separate chapter and is one of the reason for me and my best friend to visit Roberto’s for light lunch. Their unique « CheckMate » collection is a selection of mini homemade Italian deserts will be a perfect « cherry » on this fine Italian experience « cake »
This award winning venue offers everything you need for a pleasant time with friends, colleagues or family, it is also a wonderful place for romantic rendezvous. Many celebrities and royals can be seen here and there is a reason for that. Roberto’s is a high class experience for people of a good taste. Excellent service, beautiful music, personal approach, interesting evening and so much more you will find here… and sometimes you can even find here me !
