“The best Italian restaurant in UAE”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Best service, excellent food, friendly staff. I come to this restaurant every month with friends ( drive from Dubai and back)as they serve the best Italian cousine in UAE. Manager Murad welcomes every visitor with great smile and assists to the suitable table. Food always come on time and each dish looks like a masterpiece:excellent plating and decoration (I can't stop taking pics of it :) and DELICIOUS!!!!!!! My favourite is lobster soup and octopus salad, seafood is always fresh.

“A Red Snapper served for eating at 60/70 °C”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

With the due respect to all those person which are working into this good looking "Italian Restaurant" how is possible to get the food on the table in a pan ready to eat despite it is still hot (60 to 70 °C) which you cannot put on your mouth unless you wait for more or less 20 minutes.
Hence of above I had to call the waiter and ask to move the food from the pan into a cold plate in order to take my dinner in a short time.

Moreover I shall say something about the prices, in fact after receiving my bill I was extremely surprise and astonished to see that 20% additional taxes on the food and another 20% taxes on the beverages.

In conclusion I realize that I was/went on a wrong place.

“Excellent food and service!!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We had lunch at Villa Toscana on our last day at St Regis, and we regretted not having eaten there earlier. The setting is very nice and cozy, and the food and service were both excellent. The food arrived quickly and everything we ordered (pizzas, pastas, appetizers) was delicious. The manager was also very attentive and helpful and made sure all our requests were met quickly (as we were in a hurry). We even received some complimentary biscotti. Truly recommended!
