Oh, how I love Italian food! The fact that this cuisine is married to Cheese and Wine makes the union even better! With so many Italian restaurants in Dubai, it gets really hard to pick one that you may REALLY like! But after dining at here, if someone will ask you which is your favourite Italian spot in town, Marco’s name will definitely be in the top 3!
Opened in the Pyramids at Wafi, the location is perfectly centric and has a gorgeous outer space for those who like outdoor dining.
It is extremely romantic and the delicious food makes the whole experience even better! On suggestions from the Manager, we opted for the below and were thrilled at the burst of flavours in each dish!
BREAD BASKET – No Italian restaurant is complete without a complimentary portion of this! Warm, soft breads made an excellent start!
The BLOODY MARY with vodka and tomato juice was like how any should be. A tingle on the lips is all this drink is about and it did justice.
BURRATA – Our appetizer was velvety, luscious and lip smacking! One of the best Burrata’s I have ever had! It was served Mediterranean style with three different kinds of cherry tomatoes.
NAPOLI PIZZA – Shaped like a FlatBread, this woodfired Pizza was perfection! San Marzano Tomatoes, Mozarella, Fior Di Latte, olives, chilli and oregano. We asked them to exclude the anchovies.
GNOCCHI – Italian Dumplings with Gorgonzola Cheese and Chopped Walnuts! This gnocchi is the BEST i have EVER had! It was so good but heavy so can be easily shared. The cream was delicious and the combination of walnuts was great.
For desserts, you can’t not have TIRAMISU in an Italian restaurant. It was soft with berries and was decently good. We gorged on the whole thing.
SALAME DI CIOCCOLATO – These chocolate cookies were great but i would prefer them for tea time. I like really soft desserts after a meal and this was more for high tea.
For me, an Italian meal needs to be perfectly balanced with all that cheese and Marco’s did exactly that! Combine a nice ambience and great service and you have an excellent experience.
