Best Italian in Abu Dhabi? Quite possibly ... Il Porto

Tucked away in the corner of the Break Water (Or as I call it .. Marina Mall!) area, opposite Emirates Palace ... is this excellent Italian restaurant.

Add: Il Porto Restaurant
Break Water Area, Abu Dhabi
Located: Above the popular Lebanese restaurant, Mirage Marine
Tel: +971 2 236 3549

I was impressed by the service right from the start, as well as the waiter's / maître d's great knowledge of the menu. Freshly baked bread for starters with an olive tapenade and yummy sundried tomatoes ;-) Perfect! No alcohol, but the Granadine juice (25 AED) rocked!

Spinach ravioli ... true heaven!
Fettuccine al salmon ... Such a generous portion, served with both salmon flakes and full cuts of salmon over the top. Pretty good too.

Chocolate profiteroles with ice cream ... Daaarrrn good too, fantastic chocolate sauce. Love the pastry as well! All in all, a great meal! Best italian in town? Quite possibly!
