Had dinner with the family at Ronda Locatelli. Nicely located at Atlantis resort with a huge pizza oven in the center. We had pulpo and calamari as starter. The pulpo was good, the calamari was okay. Afterwards the kids went for pizza margarita and we for the linguini with lobster. Again good quality food, however not surprising to be honest.

I don't usually dine in Italian resturants as I alweys cook pasta and Italian-like food at home, but we decided o try Ronda Locatelli at Atlantis and I am glad that we did.We started with the calamari and carpaccio and they were both very delicious, the pizza also was very good. I can confirm that now I have a favorite... More

We've ordered 4 pizzas and tagliatelle and all of it was pretty much inedible. I don't have big expectations regarding food, but this was supposed to be an upscale place. Buffalo mozarella on the pizza was completely cold, fresh out of fridge and we're feeling super unwell after eating it. Also their pizza oven is powered by gas and quality... More

When you think of the celebrity chef connection, I think I was expecting to be blown away. It was good. It was efficient. The staff were friendly and attentive. It just didn't have the wow factor. Food was nice and pizza was well made, obviously benefiting from the wood fired pizza oven. Quite a diverse menu of choices and we... More

Lovely menu and suits whether you are looking for a pizza or something more substantial. The meals are generous so be careful of over-ordering. Knowledgeable staff, good wine list.

Bless my husband and my friends husband...they thought they chose the right place for our Valentine's date. My hubby phoned and booked in advance and explained that 2 guests are vegetarian. We initially went for the set menu as this is what the hubbies had agreed. It turns out when we get there that they will not even cater for... More

Not quite sure what prompted me to give this place a 2 star rating, perhaps the courteous service didn't allow me to press that dreaded 1 star button. The pizza although made in a wood fired oven is poor, just poor not much to add. I can't possible see ANY self respecting Italian give this pizza more than 2 stars... More

What a surprise to have a perfect pizza arrive at the table: good ingredients ( the cheese not rubbery, the tomato sauce not sour) nice crust, not salty. We Italians gave it a full thumbs up as one of the best we have eaten overseas.

For the price you will pay you will imagine the best Italian food. Food is mediocre. Pizza is good but doesn't knock out of park. Meats are tasteless and overlooked. Salads were good. Breads were very plain. Average entree 40-45$ drinks 20$ cheapest bottle of wine nearly 100$. Place was dead with little life. Service was good but the prices... More

Located in the extraordinary hotel Atlantis on Palm Dubai, this is a nice Italian restaurant where you will be satisfied with excellent Italian food and wines. The only hik-up? you do not feel to be in an Italian restaurant. The staff is nice and friendly.
