Famed for its no-nonsense approach to rustic and authentic Tuscan dining, Jumeirah Al Naseem’s Il Borro Tuscan Bistro gained instant hit status when opening back January 2017. Fast forward just over two years later and the award-winning restaurant has quickly developed a reputation for being a repeat visit for reliable and delectable Italian cuisine, while consistently keeping their menu fresh and unexpected.
Just in time for the cooler months, Il Borro recently warmed up their winter offerings with comfort food go-to's, emphasising seasonal ingredients like olives and artichokes. They even have a garden next to their private dining room where they grow fresh vegetables and herbs - which, as you know, is a rarity in the city. Whether you land on new favourites like the risotto ai carciofi e stracchino (artichoke risotto) or the pappardelle al ragu di vitello (homemade pappardelle pasta with lamb ragu and parmesan shavings), you'll find yourself wondering: "Who needs Tuscany, when I have Dubai?"

Before summer strikes, be sure to enjoy the restaurant’s chic Tuscan interiors and soft jazz in the indoor-outdoor dining area, where guests spill out onto the waterfront terrace overlooking Turtle Lagoon. With an exceptional atmosphere to match the stylish new menu, Il Borro has proven to be the perfect marriage of tradition and progress.
Il Borro Tuscan Bistro is located at the Jumeirah Al Naseem Hotel on Turtle Lagoon in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
