We used a complimentary voucher for lunch. Our food was not that heavy so I don't know maybe that's why it was super fast served on our table like in 10 mins both food. We ordered Margherita pizza and baked lasagna. Taste is still good but we were really shocked how fast it was done. The virgin mojito is refreshing... More

We live in Dubai and have been regularly visiting Certo for 10 years+. Great food, great selection of wines, great atmosphere (typically noisy Italian restaurant), very friendly staff and all at a reasonable price. For pre-dinner drinks pop upstairs to the rooftop bar, or to the ground level bar adjacent to the restaurant.

I enjoyed my meat at Certo. The staff were very attentive and the service great. The carpaccio for starters was good and the Pizza excellent. I was a little disappointed with the pasta selection on the menu it wasn't as broad as I had hoped. Dessert was ok but the Mille Feuille was a little hard. They have a nice... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Dubai. The food was excellent and the service really good. They don't have to be ashamed of their winelist which invluded some very nice wines. However, wine is not cheap in Dubai sorry to say. Otherwise the price really acceptable for what you get. Highly recommended.
