Whenever I need a dish of great pasta in Dubai, some buffalo I come to Al Dente and order it with a fresh sparkling water bottle. Food is done at the point from Italian ingredients and service is very good. It is Near the Mall of The Emirates.

Part of the Byblos hotel, but with a separate entrance, this Italian restaurant has a wide-ranging menu and serves wine and beer. The service was very attentive, the food good and the price quite reasonable.
