Armani/Ristorante Dubai

Contemporary Italian cooking in Dubai

Located in the Burj Khalifa at the lobby level of the luxurious Armani Hotel Dubai, Armani/RistoranteDubai instantly impresses with its sophisticated caramel and muted gold interiors and marble floors surrounding a central open kitchen busy with chefs meticulously plating dishes.At tables on the terrace at this elegant fine-dining restaurant, diners have front-row seats to spectacular views of the Dubai Fountain in what is one of the city’s most romantic dinner settings.

Served with contemporary flair, the dishes on the menu created by Sardinian chef Giovanni Papi draw on his love for Italian cooking handed down through generations. A rich symphony of flavors, textures, techniques and quality ingredients, each of the dishes showcases his creative talent, willingness to innovate and eye for detail. It’s no surprise Armani/Ristorante is a popular choice for diners celebrating a special occasion.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • On the à la carte menu, expect elevated dishes such as gold-leaf-topped burrata, Black Angus carpaccio with pistachio mayonnaise, quail egg, bell pepper and stracciatella, and osso bucco ravioli with Parmigiano fondue and tarragon.
  • With pan-seared langoustines, slow-cooked veal, glazed blue lobster, risotto with Sicilian red prawns and suckling lamb saddle on the degustation menu, the eight-course Exclusive Journey is an excellent choice if you want to sample the chef’s signature dishes.
  • It’s also worth considering seasonal menus and degustation menus that celebrate specific ingredients (such as the mushroom degustation menu).
  • The in-house sommelier is on hand for expert wine-pairing recommendations. Expect top-notch service all around at the Dubai restaurant.
  • Save room for dessert— specifically for LSfera, a beautiful glossy sphere that makes for a memorable conclusion to any meal. Its components change seasonally but are always delicious with surprising flavors such as bergamot crème brûlée and lemon-basil sorbet.
