Its stylish décor with an open kitchen, classic neon lights and a lively atmosphere is just the perfect way to spend a Friday afternoon with friends and family. Luigia also offers a proper menu featuring all things Italian – from zesty antipasti to aromatic pizza, aperitivo and more, that suits all palates.
The Luigia brunch comprises a selection of timeless recipes designed to make families’ dining experiences memorable, whether they are shared with friends or loved ones. Guests can choose from a selection of Luigia’s signature dishes such as crispy frittura di calamari, margherita classica and dreamy tiramisu for dessert, accompanied by house beverages.
The pizza’s perfection eclipsed everything that was set out on the table and the desserts are great, but savoury is no doubt their true forte. It’s not just a brunch, but an elaborate Italian adventure.
In case you need a break from running after the little ones, the restaurant’s kids’ area offers families a fun-tastic dine and play experience where children under the age 12 can enjoy a myriad of exciting activities and a comfortable, one-of-a-kind kids’ cinema screening all their favourite cartoons.

Founded by Luigi Guarnaccia and Enrico Coppola, the restaurant is named after their grandmother, which explains air of homeliness in the restaurant despite its elegance.
Passion oozes from every nook and corner of this dining hall – a strong passion for food and an even stronger passion to share their appetite for Italian cooking with the public at large. Luigia is, first and foremost, a tribute to family life and traditions, indeed bringing ‘the Best of Italy’ to Dubai.
