As for the mains, my friend opted for the “Filleto de Manzo”, while I fell into the temptation of the “Pasta Gamberi e Funghi”, which usually comes with red sauce, but since I’m not big on it, I replaced it with white cream sauce. The medium well done steak was very tender and delicious with a perfectly salted mushroom sauce and a side of vegetables, however, we were disappointed by the quantity of mashed potatoes which was minimal, unlike what we were informed, so my friend had to order a side of mashed potatoes. The pasta won me over with its succulent creamy pomodoro sauce and its fresh prawns, I have found the best seafood pasta in town that I have tasted so far, amazing!
With very little space left, we had no option but to ask for the mains to be packed and focused on what desserts sounded more tempting. I’m big on cheesecake so I picked my safe choice, “Torta di Frommagi” , a baked cheesecake with a generous raspberry topping, while my friend went for the “Limone meringue” which though turned out to be slightly too lemon-y, was delicious.
The restaurant also had an indoor seating area, but because the weather in Dubai is becoming a little more tolerable and enjoyable, everyone was on the wait list to dine outdoors.
If you ever visit Urbano make sure you reserve before hand and ask for seating with a great view of the fountain. Oh, and of course consider checking out my favorites off the menu below!
