Quattro Passi is two Michelin-starred chef Antonio Mellino’s newly opened Italian restaurant at the Five Palm Jumeirah Dubai. It is, I am told, an evolution of his original Quattro Passi, on Italy’s beautiful Amalfi Coast: https://www.viamichelin.com/web/Restaurant/NERANO_MARINA_DEL_CANTONE-80061-Quattro_Passi-139636-41102. As tasteful and elegantly decorated as its interior is, it pales in comparison to the beautiful seating arrangement they currently have around the pool area.
The food at this fine dining restaurant is superb. And although their mains are outstanding, I recommend you look twice at their amazing starters / antipasti section. FYI, Quattro Passi started off as a simple, trattoria-style pizzeria, adding to its menu as it grew in stature, fame, and stars. As a testament to chef Antonio’s roots, the Quattro Passi franchise retains, not just a fun-loving casualness, but also a belief in sharing – bring on the antipasti, please. So, if you are in a group, rather than skip the starters and go straight for the mains, do the opposite – order a number of antipasto. Halla, this is just my recommendation. I’m sure you will love the mains too, especially the seafood which, irrespective of what anyone tells you, is THE speciality of Quattro Passi.
Service is another one of the highlights of this restaurant, the Michelin-star rub-off evident (but not in a snobbish way). Quattro Passi is a welcome addition to Dubai’s Italian culinary scene, and well worth a detour.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
