Fabio Tramontano is the head chef of the Italian restaurant - Il Faro. Nestled on the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah, the restaurant features an unparalleled view of not only the beach but also the palm front, and Burj Al Arab. Guests here can expect a diverse menu of traditional Italian dishes that are both creative and healthy.
For your next visit, here are the 5 must try dishes at Il Faro according to Chef Fabio.
1) Calamarata Allo Scoglio
Calamarata Allo Scoglio is one of our signature and best seafood pasta. Calamarata is a special shape of pasta that matches perfectly with seafood and tomato, absorbing all the flavours.
2) Bufala Pizza
We have a wide range of pizza but if I had to choose, I would pick the Bufala and the Ripieno. The Bufala is a margherita pizza but very refreshing. Once out of the oven, it is topped with bufala mozzarella and cherry tomatoes. The Ripieno is a Napolitan calzone, stuffed with ricotta, Provolone cheese, mozzarella and mushrooms.
Of course, Tiramisu cannot be missed, freshly prepared with traditional Italian ingredients directly sourced from Italy and served the same way as my mother used to when I was a child.
4) Antipasto Misto
It is a selection of our best starters. It changes every day according to our guests' taste and also sometimes depending on my mood. My favourite starters for the Antipasto Misto are Burrata, Vitello Tonnato and Carpaccio.
5) Insalata Di Mare
It is a seafood salad that is perfect for a light meal or as a starter. It is grilled to perfection and seasoned in a really traditional way with lemon dressing. Like the Italian style, it is just simple and tasty.
