I have been to Rosso many times, it i very consistent, always great simple food. The outside area is lovely and is good for families, friends and couples. My last visit I was blown away with the best service from our waiter Jitendra, he could not have been more accommodating, Thank you for the perfect evening.

Rosso is an Italian story at the heart of Dubai's favorite beach destination. Must try their mushroom Risotto. For dessert, the tiramisu is a winner! The staff are incredibly attentive and the wood-oven pizza is the main attraction. If you're all about Italian food, then Rosso is a must experience. They host one of the best brunches in town, every... More

It's a nice place for a drink, the outside terrace is big, but has a cozy feel. The service is fine, not the best one in Dubai :) The burrata salad is delicious, I think it's one of the best burrata in town. Pizza is not good at all (surprizing, considering it'a an Italian restaurant), every time we had it,... More

Had a great night at Rosso, sitting at the bar and arrived early so the place was not too crowded for a Thursday early evening. The staff were attentive and excellent and the music was well thought through for the clientele at that time of day. Tried the special menu and have to say that the tuna tartare was amazing,...

We had dinner at Rosso to celebrate my wife's birthday and we were not disappointed. We had a table outside (which is a huge area) which I would recommend if you are a non smoker as inside was very smokey. The service was very nice if not a little over attentive at times but you can't fault it. Food was... More

I have waited for over twenty minutes setting waiting to be served but no one came. I have seen the waiters jumping between tourists but not toward my table. I think their is a discrimination toward locals. I will not recommend this restaurant.

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.
