Tortellini, a new Italian restaurant inspired by the city of Bologna – Italy’s gastronomic capital – has opened its doors in Dubai’s Business Bay.
Located in Blue Bay Tower, the concept is the creation of Amany and Khaled, a husband-and-wife team of interior designers who were inspired to launch the venue following a trip to Bologna.
Amany comments: “It was that one night when we returned to our hotel after a long day and all the restaurants were closed. We luckily met one of the chefs in the lobby and after a long chat, he agreed to open his kitchen and prepare for us a local dish, tortellini, which we absolutely fell in love with.”
Tortellini, a ring-shaped pasta originating from Bologna, is typically filled with meat or cheese and is served in broth or with cream and butter, tomato sauce or pesto.
The casual dining restaurant offers traditional Italian appetisers, pizza, meat and seafood and is open daily from 11am-1am.
