It's not the fanciest Italian in Dubai but Al Dente is a great local restaurant. Visited many times and the food is always delicious, service is attentive but not in your face, and the atmosphere is chatty. They also do delivery!

I went there a few times, alone and with some colleagues. Nice selection of starters, decent pizza, risotto was overcooked. Good value for money considering Dubai standard, still twice as expensive as similar places in Italy.

Fantastic proper Italian, excellent and lovely attentive staff. Stands above and beyond most Dubai restaurants at a very fair price.
