Yes Dubai Mall is always busy and especially during the Dubai Shopping Festival, but the staff in this restaurant was absolutely hideous! We came in and asked the lady if we could sit outside. We got a straight up no, saying there is no table. When we showed her 3 empty tables, she said there is a 2 hour waiting... More

The food was ok. Very much the quality and taste you expect from a formulaic Italian. Location nice. Staff rushed so cleaning between tables for dropped food etc doesn't happen quickly. No need to avoid but don't rush there either.

We visited Carluccio's in Ibn Battuta mall. Food was really nice, staff is also ok. I guess there could be better pizza's in town, but this was really cool. I tried out pizza with seafood, and it was really great.

Went there with the family as they have gluten free dishes which is a nice addition. The salad dishes are great but the pasta is average and the chicken dishes and even the pasta with chicken is below average (in the pasta there was dark pieces of chicken and sometimes with the skin; the whole chicken dish was not tasty...

The food has nothing special, same as any other commercial Italian concept, tasteless with no passion or attention to details; you can definitely consider if you want an Italian cuisine and you are in the marina mall but don't expect a lot. What is bothering is the cleanliness of the place, we got our table to discover that between the... More

Second time. Quality food. Really good, all options are super. The seating inside is not bad, outside tends to get busy. A little pricy for the sodas. But I guess this is the location. Will come back again Pizza is amazing Actually, everything we tried was super and well priced

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
