Ravioli & Co, an Italian trattoria, is set to open in August at Burj Daman in Dubai’s DIFC district.
Specialising in fresh pasta made daily, the licensed concept is the creation of Khulood Khoury, from Jordan, and Greta Canevese, from Italy.
Restaurant manager Rebecca Femino from Sicily will oversee operations.
The kitchen will be headed up by chef Eros Bambrilla, who looks forward to creating specialities such as eggplant gnocchi.
In addition to fresh pasta, the restaurant will feature an in-house bakery offering focaccia, grissini and other Italian baked goods.
Low calorie, gluten-free and vegetarian options will be available and there are plans to introduce a weekly aperitivo and cooking classes.
