iL Cafe di Roma

Updated March 12, 2014

For the third time we come to this restaurant to accompany my friend who is hungry. I am not hungry but I decided to order for the sake of being in the restaurant. I ordered Penne Arabiata.

I don't like their penne arabiata, the pasta is almost over cooked and it has just tomato sauce. A bit spicy is the only reason to recognised that its penne arabiata. I am not sure if this is the standard but I didn't noticed what else are written on the menu as description of this food.

I am a better penne arabiata cook than the chef who cook my order. My penne arabiata is cooked with home made penne pasta, well cooked, with a bit of chop chilly not very spicy, tomato sauce, fresh cherry tomato and chop parsley tasty season with salt, pepper and olive oil.

I will never try to order Penne/ Arabiata in any restaurant now.

Because I didn't able to catch the 9:30 pm bus I decided to try this restaurant in EMAAR blvd. "iL Cafe di Roma" looks and sounds expensive. With its name its sure that it's a Italian restaurant. I am not a big fan of Italian food but because I am cook in a Italian restaurant so I know that they have something for me. As expected they have pizza, gelato, buratta, and of course pasta.

I ordered linguini with seafoods (calamari, shrimp, mussels) and ice tea. Their linguini has a creamy white sauce, it's cooked al dente and has right amount of shrimp, calamari and mussels. The taste is good but I didn't finished because i easily get full.
The lemon ice tea is good like everywhere.


The restaurant is good, they have a comfortable seat, al fresco with the view of down-part of Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa because it was covered by the Dubai Mall bridge. They have wide LCD TV playing football games. The ambience is good for sure I am coming back.

The waiter exceeded my expectation. They are about to close the restaurant when I ordered coffee that I am going to sip outside at al fresco, He gave me extra wifi password and he told me that in case I stay for long I can use the internet.
