Of the world flavours available to diners in Dubai, there is a certain perfection found in the simplicity of Italian cuisine, done right. Which is why we are thrilled to welcome PI.Dubai to the culinary scene, with the new restaurant at The Dubai Mall, found on the lower ground floor. 

Headed by the creators of The Pizza Guys, Amber Haque and Rami Badawi, the delectable menu offers a heart-stopping selection of Italian flavours that "is really about honouring tradition without being bound by it," according to co-founder Amber Haque. A concept that is evidenced by the mouthwateringly creative menu which features, the peekytoe crab and wild shrimp sformato and original pizza dough gnocchi as starters, followed by the veal chop parmigiano, tagliatelle mac and cheese as the main course, and ending with the hot caramel cake with mint and flaky sea salt, to name just a few highlights. All the dishes are made from the freshest seasonal organic ingredients. 

We also love the interiors of the restaurant, designed by local interior designer Atefeh Bashir of Ruiz Velasquez Design. The 3,000 square-foot space is beautifully designed in an old-world inspired theme, using stunning imported brass and marble finishes. Be sure to stop by.
