Italian in Downtown Dubai

Turquoise paintwork, stripy red-and-white awnings and a Gaudí-esque mismatch of colourful floor tiles provide the canvas for this rustic-style Italian restaurant with its menu chalked up on a giant blackboard. This is a prime spot for breakfast with a vast choice of omelettes. Or try a pizzetta, perfect for one, with toppings such as truffles, pesto and prawns.
