Dinner @ Carluccio’s, The Dubai Mall

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’m actually still sitting here in Carluccio’s as I wait for the other 3 to arrive. I didn’t plan to write on Carluccio’s as I’ve been to the one in the Marina Mall with G for a random weekend lunch and it wasn’t that super. This one on the other hand is actually, quite nice ๐Ÿ™‚

They’re playing soft french music. There’re big red and silver ceiling lights hanging off the high ceiling. I look outside and I see palm trees entwined by sparkly lights. The Dubai Fountain has just came and gone. And, quite surprisingly, there are a lot of people sitting outside. Looks like summer is almost, over?

The floors are wooden, the kitchen is open. I like the big wallpaper wall feature which shows a truck carrying fruits and vegetables. To my left is a black and white photo wallpaper of what looks like the old english days. Oh hang on, it’s an italian restaurant, so it must be Italy. O wait, that means the music must be Italian too.

I like this place. I like the atmosphere. It makes me feel comfortable. Did you also know that you get not one, but three 2 for 1 coupons in your HSBC Entertainer book? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Carluccio’s
  • Dubai Mall
  • Ground Floor, overlooking the fountains
  • 2 for 1 HSBC Entertainer Book
  • Park at ‘Fashion Parking’ (That’s the best advice here isn’t it)

(Afternote : The food was alright. I thought the pasta was a bit too tough for my liking, but hey, maybe it’s just tonight? I’ll still come back to this place for a casual catch up with friends, or even just to blog/people-watch ๐Ÿ™‚ )
