Located next to the famous Dubai Fountains, Carluccio’s provides an authentic Italian dining experience in the world’s largest mall, the Dubai Mall. You are completely absorbed in your food, your hypnosis only broken by the musical performance of the fountains.
I come to eat at Carluccio’s every time I visit Dubai. I just love the ambience, the food and the service. The following are some of my old favorites, and might I add….. the desserts are delicious!
Wild Mushroom Arancini
Crispy fried balls stuffed with mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. Dip one into the accompanying spicy arrabiata sauce, bite into it, and oh! Sheer delight!
Dotted with Fabbri Amarena cherries, the cheesecake looks almost too lovely to eat.
Chocolate Orange Cake
My personal favorite. Love the orange zest to the chocolate hazelnut icing!
There’s something about cracking a frozen shell of chocolate, and watching warm chocolate flowing out that makes the tartufo so appealing.
The sponge cake of my father’s childhood. He never fails to order it every time we dine at Carluccio’s.
A hint of strong espresso enlivens this old favorite.
