Restaurant review: Italian cuisine with Mediterranean influences – News

Enjoy a lazy Saturday brunch at Fi’lia which recreates an Italian fruit and vegetable market with live cooking and entertainment

Fi’lia, located on the 70th floor of the SLS Dubai Hotel & Residences, which offers spectacular and breathtaking views of Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world – and Dubai Creek, is an Italian restaurant with Mediterranean influences. It kicked off the summer season in early May with its delicious Saturday brunch. Although the gourmet restaurant opened in December 2020, it has come on its own since the easing of Covid-19 restrictions a few months ago.

The Saturday brunch is inspired by the concept of mom’s kitchen — served like your loving mom — where sharing and caring are the key words.

Every Saturday afternoon, the place turns into an Italian fruit and vegetable market with carnaroli rice, aceto balsamico and other fresh, organic ingredients.

Diners can savor delicious homemade Italian dishes while taking in the stunning 360-degree views of Dubai amidst a solo guitarist playing lively numbers.

The menu includes five courses: an appetizer, antipasti, a pizza dish, a main course and a crunchy tiramisu to complete the delicious meal.

Fi’lia’s signature bites include freshly baked focaccia and salumi, stracciatella and tomatino paired with cocktails for the perfect start. Try the hot and crunchy arancini and the Cozze – mussels cooked in a white wine sauce – the dish that will transport you to a summer on the Mediterranean with a crisp glass of homemade grapes while listening to live violinist tunes.

The main course includes freshly baked Bresaola and Burrata pizza, served with portions of Rigatoni with Tomato Sauce and Ricotta Salata.

Feel free to order a more indulgent cut of steak from the grill.

Treat yourself to Fi’lia’s signature dessert, Fi’liamisu, which is served mom-style in a huge bowl.
