Chef Massimo Bottura will transport you to the Italian Riviera with sophisticated plates of fine Italian food. With his three Michelin-starred restaurant Osteria Francescana a very clear success, Bottura has ventured outside of Italy to bring his first one Michelin star restaurant to Dubai. In classic Italian style, diners will experience a sophisticated, classy approach to dining that is complimented with a socialable and laid back atmosphere that is the perfect escape from every day life.
With plenty of dining areas to choose from, guests can dine al fresco, in the colourful restaurant or even in the private cabana on the beach - the perfect setting for a romantic Italian feast. Massimo Bottura entrusts his creative, playful menu with Chef Bernardo Paladini leading the kitchen.
Whilst you dine with the stunning views from the beachfront, get a taste of the sea with a starter of crispy calamari or a rock lobster roll with a spiced horseradish mayonnaise. Add a side of focaccia bread to share with your table to dive into the social Italian dining experience. Moving onto the pasta course, guests will be treated to fresh, traditional pasta; from classic spaghetti pomodoro to Bottura's take on spaghetti bolognese and lasagna with a wagyu beef ragu - full of sophistication.
For the main course, you will find more wagyu beef as well as seabass, roasted octopus and an orange-glazed lamb served with salsa and tartare sauce. If these don't tempt you, the pizza's will. Made with a focaccia dough and topped with mozzarella, Robiola cheese, black truffle and an aromatic salad, it is clear why this particular pizza is named 'Chef's Favourite'. The desserts are just as classic as the rest of the menu so don't skip out on the tiramisu.
Experience a five-course menu under the stars at the private beach cabana. With romantic torches and fairy lights decorating the cabana, you can experience Italy in a whole new way.
