Donatello Italian Restaurant & Lounge

Authenticity, style and great service are the hallmarks of Donatello Italian Restaurant & Lounge, which offers delicious, traditional cuisine cooked to perfection. With its sumptuous, ornate interiors you'll be instantly transported from its Dubai World Trade Centre location right to the heart of Italy.

Donatello Italian Restaurant & Lounge offers authentic Italian cuisine in a setting of style and sophistication, accompanied by impeccable customer service. Conveniently situated in the Dubai World Trade Centre, the restaurant serves a regularly rotating selection of traditional, seasonal dishes which deliver all the sights and aromas of authentic Italian cooking – such as freshly-made ravioli, risotto and stews.

But it's not just the food which is true to its Italian heritage – it's the whole restaurant. The entire establishment is designed and modelled as an homage to the renaissance sculptor Donato di Niccolò di Betto Bardi. Better known as Donatello, he helped to define the classic look of Italy that endures to this day. The restaurant takes both its inspiration and its name from this most famous of classic European cultural figures. The restaurant's interiors boast a Baroque flair, with luxurious gilded latticework, ornate mirror frames and fabrics, and earthenware busts.

Donatello Italian Restaurant & Lounge is a luxurious, stylish destination which operates under a guiding principle that every customer should leave feeling at least a little happier than when they arrived. At the heart of this philosophy is the care and attention they pay to every guest – as well as to the wonderful selection of food and drink on offer. Dishes and wines have been carefully selected from all across Italy's regions, ensuring that the restaurant delivers a true and authentic slice of the country's culinary culture to everyone who dines here.

The food itself is fresh and cooked to perfection, offering generous portions, imaginative sauces, and an incredible selection of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. Fresh fish is delivered to the restaurant daily, and forms the basis of many of its specials.

Donatello Italian Restaurant & Lounge is a perfect destination for all kinds of occasions: whether you're after a satisfying lunch, a hearty dinner, a delicious coffee or just drinks with friends. In addition to authentic Italian cuisine, the venue offers cocktails and music in a relaxed, stylish environment. Whatever your reason for visiting, the attentive staff will treat you with the same friendly, courteous attention for which Donatello Italian Restaurant & Lounge famously prides itself.
