My wife and I dined at the Fratelli La Bufala twice last month when we visited Dubai Festival City. This is a restaurant that offers authentic Italian cuisine and is located at the first level, waterfront area of the mall.
For this dining experience, we used the Entertainer Dubai App and it was great that we were able to purchase two main courses for the price of one.

Dining at Fratelli La ‘Bufala in Festival City Mall
Fratelli La Bufala is a spacious restaurant that has a modern and kid-friendly atmosphere. It also has an outdoor seating area at the terrace which is great as Dubai Festival City recently launched the IMAGINE show, a light, water and fire presentation which is another tourist attraction to see in the emirate. So this is also a great way to dine outdoors with family and friends during winter season.
The restaurant menu has a variety of starters, salads pizza and pasta and desserts. They also serve mocktails and other beverages.

I’m a big fan of pizza and I couldn’t help but write about this feature because the food was really good. We asked the waiter what they recommended and we were offered the Focaccia Stella and the Risotto alla Pescatora.
I loved the pizza crust baked in a wood-fire oven and the freshness of its topped ingredients. My wife also enjoyed her seafood risotto.
Risotto alla Pescatora – 80 AED
Italian arborio rice with a selection of shellfish and seafood
Focaccia Stella – 70 AED
Pizza bread with pesto sauce topped with bresaola, ricotta, arugula and grana cheese shavings
I had helpful servings of their complimentary bread starter, but I still devoured our food as I was really hungry during the two visits in this restaurant.
