Well located in the Dubai Marina. The food is good here and the sights are great. Close to the Dubai Marina mall. Taxis are at an arms reach from Stefano's so traveling won't be a problem.

A quaint restaurant on the Marina Walk. The decor is a little dated for the interiors. Outdoor seating is decent. They have a good menu selection, however it is on the expensive side.

Average fare with overpriced dishes trading more on its location and availability of Shisha sitting on the Dubai Marina promenade. Nice enough to sit and watch the world go by but if you're looking for Italian food, then you're not going be wowed here.

Being Italian I usually do not expect much about Pizzerie outside of Italy. This place offers instead a quite good pizza (considering you are in Dubai!). Place is nice and relaxing. They also have shish - but no alcohol! Very friendly staff!

Yes I know it is Dubai and yes I know Dubai is expensive but the least you should expect is quality that matches the expense! It was a promising start, the bruschetta was very nice and very tasty if way overpriced (the equivalent of €10 for 3 small pieces of bread with some chopped tomatoes on it) and it augured... More

Went for dinner with my husband. Ordered Caesar salad and Risotto with seafood. Big portions even for shearing. Salad was good and dressing was fine, but risotto was not so tasty it was rice but not risotto as Italian dish . I think this place good to smoke shisha only. Service average. I will not recommend my friends.

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
