Italian dinners with girls we like to have at Rosso at the Amwaj Rotana Hotel JBR. For the first time I have discovered this place with my Italian friends. If Italians recommend this restaurant, it means that the food is really good.
The restaurant is quite big, with a bar, smoking area, non smoking area and a huge outside seating, which will be enjoyable when the weather in Dubai will cool down. Among the visitors there is a mix of nationalities, tourists as well as Dubai residents. Its getting really crowded after 9pm, so the table reservation in advance is preferable. The Italian food here is very good and the portions are huge. I’m a fan of risotto, and I have shared the plate with my friend, as it was too big for one person. Bar menu is quite extensive, with a great choice of wines. There is a happy hour for selected drinks from 6 to 9 pm every day. For Ladies night on Wednesday girls will receive coupons to exchange for three free drinks.
