Fratelli la Bufala – Dubai

My review of Fratelli la Bufala – this restaurant serves Italian cuisine with many choices for starters, pasta, steaks, pizzas, and desserts. I found that the presentation of the dishes here were great but the flavours were lacking in some of the dishes I had.

The il croccantino alla caprese, or mozzarella cheese with couscous, was not too bad and I found that the couscous was a good change from the usual bread crumbs. The couscous was softer and broke apart easier which exposed the delicious mozzarella wonderfully.

My favourite dish was the lo zuccotto di melanzana, which was the fried eggplant with ricotta cheese. The eggplant was prepared perfectly where it had all of the delicious eggplant flavours that I love. The ricotta cheese went together very well with the eggplant.

My thoughts on the zuppa do pesce, or seafood soup, was that it was not as rich as I thought it would be. The seafood in the soup was good, but the soup texture was light, and I didn’t taste much of the tomato.

I was disappointed with my risotto alla pescatora. I am obsessed with seafood risotto and I order it at every Italian restaurant that I am at. The risotto served here did not meet my expectations as the rice was sadly under cooked and it was not creamy at all.

This restaurant deserves a rating of 3/5.

I ordered the il croccantino alla caprese for 45DHS, lo zuccotto di melanzana for 45DHS, zuppa di pesce for 60DHS, and the risotto alla pescatora for 80DHS.

The pricing of the dishes served here are average for what you would find at an Italian restaurant.

The service was good at the beginning of the dinner, but it started getting slow and the servers were forgetting to clear our finished dishes off our table. The starters came out very fast to our table, but our second orders of drinks and main courses took quite some time.

The ambience of this restaurant was simple, but the fruit bar was a great sight for sore eyes. With this juice bar, it helped liven up the place showcasing that fresh fruits are used here.
