"It’s really great to be able to get stuck in and bring some super high-quality, well made pizzas to the city, and embrace local flavours along the way. The thing I love about Dubai is that there’s so many different cultures and some incredible produce on offer, and you guys really appreciate the importance of using beautiful fresh ingredients, like I do in all my restaurants.”

He added that the restaurant is a rustic Italian casual-dining concept that has a simple and classic menu with bold flavours with the pizza dough made fresh on-site.
