Sunday, February 18, 2018 0 Comments A+ a-

Last weekend I was lucky to have the amazing food trip to Italy. Andiamo! Is one of the restaurant that serves authentic and unique Italian cuisine. All the ingredients are being exported from Italy everyday. All thanks to Chef Massimo who prepared everything all by himself and briefed us about every dish.

The restaurant is far away from hustle of city, have peaceful atmosphere and very close to Al Raha Beach, can be easily located. Restaurant have very rustic and spacious. They have maple of seating area from bar stools to private cabins they have everything also outdoor seating. 

What We Tried There:
  • Baked Eggplant
  • Cannelloni
  • Wild Mushroom & Truffle Risotto
  • Calabrese Pizza
  • Bufalina & Burrata Pizza
  • All Day Energizer
  • Chocolate Shake
  • Iced Tea
  • Red Avocado Smoothie
  • Tiramisu
  • Double Pannacotta
  • Cheescake
We started with All Day Energizer, it is mix of many fruits and had perfect consistency. You could taste each flavour of the fruit. It is also their best selling drink.

Next we drink was suggested by the staff which is Iced Tea. It had orange as it's dominant flavor. Perfect drink for summers in UAE.

The first dish that arrived was Cannelloni, it is home made pasta layers with lots vegetables and cheese. The sauces (I don't know the exact name of that sauce) and the softness of pasta were bomb. Pasta was not overly cooked and perfect. They also prepare it with beef, if anyone wants to have pasta you #MustTry Cannelloni.
Next was something that I never tried before, it is Wild Mushroom & Truffle Risotto. I always wanted to try risotto but for some reason I couldn't make my mind to have it. But I was happy that our menu consisted of Risotto. In a very traditional Italian way Rice is roasted and slowly cooked. It had four different types of mushroom, truffle and black olives. I #HighlyRecommend you to try this unique dish with truffle and mushrooms.

It's impossible to leave the Italian Restaurant without having Pizza. First pizza was Calabrese which had spicy beef salami, mozzarella, red bell peppers. It had very few ingredients but the taste was to die for. This was #MyFavorite out of all the dishes we tried.

Our Second Pizza was Bufalina & Burrata, these pizza is full of cheese. The main ingredients are Buffalo mozzarella and Burrata Cheese. It is very cheesy and delicious.

Final dish was Baked Eggplant, this dish is again something that I didn't expect to be so good. It is mix of pumpkin puree and caramelized shallot. Served with halloumi fondue and quinoa. Everything in one spoon and different flavours, simply love it.
