The one about Roberto’s
If I had to come up with a headline for this post, it would definitely be “DIFC fails to disappoint”. Home to Zuma, La Petite Maison, Caramel, Gaucho and now more recently Roberto’s, a high end Italian restaurant owned by the Bice’s ex-director,named guess what? Roberto!…DIFC has easily made itself into a one stop shop for any great fine dining restaurant in Dubai.
This week’s post is all about…
Force me to choose a dish and I will choose Roberto’s pizza. Imagine a thin crisp pizza, with carpaccio, rocket and a hint of truffle - Scrumptious! The goat cheese and beetroot salad came in ( a far) second.
The melanzane and calamari weren’t anything exceptional ( I assume its because La Petite Maison perfects the same dishes and hence my high expectations)
I would highly recommend are :
- Breaded veal chop (will definitely order that next time),
- Tortelloni with cream and truffle
- Angel hair pasta arrabiata with mozarella ( a dish my friend prefers to order at every Italian restaurant she visits)
The one dish I was very disappointed with was my main dish - Whole wheat linguine with sun dried tomatoes and pesto.
I would definitely recommend the mango and passionfruit cheesecake…absolutely loved the crust.
I am absolutely certain that the staff at Roberto’s are hard core Juventus fans for the simple reason that I was asked about Alex Del Piero while I was escorted to the table. In addition, our waitress was quite keen to meet Juventina (who wouldn’t be?) and the time we wanted to bring Juventina’s cake out.
Our table for 8 was quite large so sharing our food wasn’t ideal due to the proximity to the other end. Our waitress was kind enough to serve each of us around the table.
As usual, restaurants at DIFC fail to disappoint and as you would expect, the place was beautiful. Roberto’s offers seating indoors as well as outdoors. If you are after a quiet dinner, I would recommend you sit indoors and if you’re after something a bit more alive then perhaps the outdoor area would work best.
Already looking forward to my next visit…
