Happyritivo Night at Merletto Restaurant in Marriott Al Jaddaf

We had a good time dining during Happyritivo theme night at Merletto Restaurant in Marriott Al Jaddaf. Derived from ‘aperitivo’, this dinner concept offers plenty of finger food menu options ranging from bruschettas to mozzarella sticks to focaccias to capreses.

Massimiliano Ascione, Chef de Cuisine at Merletto, has created this menu which features authentic, fresh, simple and flavorful trattoria style favorites, which is the same as you would get when you visit an Italian home. The restaurant offers a classy atmosphere where you can dine intimately with friends and family.

Merletto Restaurant Review: Italian Restaurant at Marriott Al Jaddaf Dubai

The Happyritivo theme night happens every Thursdays and Fridays in Merletto. Patrons have specialty canape choices as well as free-flowing house grape for 150 AED per person. You will be able to taste the Italian flavor during this night by sampling classic bites from Italy.

Here are photos of the food we’ve tasted. The notable ones we like are the mushrooms with goat cheese, and the caprese style cherry tomatoes and cherry mozarellas.

On another note, prior to going home, we stopped and stared at the light decorations in their spacious lobby. They were very elegant which gave an added touch to the classiness of the hotel.
