Some places leave you surprised and similar happened with me when i stepped in here. This Restaurant and Lounge is the most authentic Italian restaurant in Dubai. Al Grissino is one of the few restaurants that provides an exceptional fine dining experience that will leave you pleasant. From Milano to Dubai this place is must visit.
The restaurant is a like a beautiful peace of art. Ambiance is very classy and very Italian. How can i miss to mention about the spectacular view of City and Burj Khalifa, this place is ideal to get your date and enjoy. Live piano player gives a different aura to the restaurant all together. Service is prompt and menu is designed beautifully
We started with starter GAMBERI ALLA CATALANA it is prawns catalan style with tomatoes, onions and vinegar, a very unique flavors, loved it. BURRATA CON CONCASSE DI POMODORI E OLIO AL BASILICO name is heavy but it is burrata with concasse tomato and basil oil, the freshness of this dish is so good that you want more and more.
For mains i tried FILETTO DI BRANZINO ALLA SILILIANA it is sea bass sicilian style with cherry tomatoes, olives and capers, very flavorful. RISOTTO AI PORCINI E FIUNGI DI BOSCO it is porcini and mixed mushroom risotto, simple and good, the flavors mixed well together. Both the dishes tasted good and i liked them both.
Now let me write about my favorite part of the meal, which is dessert. We opted TIRAMISU which was simple yet very elegant dessert, where the presentation stole the show. PANNA COTTA AI FRUTTI DI BOSCO which is panna cotta with berries, where they pour berry sauce on top, both the dessert is something will surely go back for.

They bought some contemporary Italian and European cuisines with some of the finest and highly refined ingredients, and also deliver extraordinary variety.
