Cucina Mia is a casual Italian eatery in the Dubai Marina that prides itself on delivering a true expression of traditional cuisine using the best ingredients imported from Italy. The Mediterranean fish and meat are of excellent quality, and the delicious simplicity of the dishes allows these to shine through. All the pasta is handmade on site, and the pizza dough is carefully created through a process of leavening, temperature control, and then finished in the wood fire oven built with bespoke Italian clay bricks, resulting in a crisp yet soft dough.
The menu at Cucina Mia is quintessential Italian flavours and offers an impressive amount of choice. For starters, enjoy classics such as bruschetta, arancini, caprese di bufala or carpaccio. There are 20 different pasta dishes to choose from like gnocchi, ravioli and seafood linguine, as well as sumptuous risottos. For a more refined evening, opt for the meat or fish mains where you can enjoy a veal Milanese or a whole grilled Canadian lobster. Served by the metre, the pizza is arguably the star attraction, with a house tomato sauce, oozing mozzarella and a plethora of toppings to choose from. To cap off this veritable feast, indulge in tiramisu or sweet cannelloni.
Enjoy this delicious meal either in the cozy interior, or for those sunny summer days, dine al-fresco on the terrace under the shade of umbrellas, and enjoy the serene view of the Dubai marina watching the boats pass you by. Keep your eyes peeled for the exciting events that occur at Cucina Mia. For example, the ladies entrepreneur networking evenings and the pizza making afternoons for kids. During Ramadan, Cucina Mia offers a great value iftar package; for just 45AED you get a choice of either pasta, pizza, risotto or fish/meat main course, paired with a garlic bruschetta, a dessert and a drink.
