Four Points by Sheraton, Bur Dubai is gearing up to open Italian restaurant, Ricetta, in mid-December, with chef Alex Sebastianutti at the helm of the kitchen.
Featuring mustard yellow walls, red and white checkered tablecloths and black and white posters depicting scenes from Italy, the venue reflects the ambience of a traditional Italian trattoria.
Ricetta’s dishes are made with Italian ingredients and menu items include gamberi piccanti (spicy shrimp), ossobucco alla Milanese (Milanese braised veal), provola affumicata (smoked provola) and agnello e broccoli (lamb and broccoli).
Chef Sebastianutti, who has 13 years’ experience working in Italian restaurants in Europe and the Middle East, commented: “Italian cooking calls for great recipes, high quality, authentic ingredients and a good dose of passion.
“You can be sure you’ll find the heartiest homemade meals at Ricetta… the kind of meals that intrigue, satisfy and keep guests returning for more. It’s high-end comfort food at its finest.”
Ricetta will have a daily aperitif and takeaway and delivery options.
