Signor Sassi, one of London’s most celebrated Italian restaurants, has started taking reservations for its imminent Dubai launch, scheduled for the end of September.
A joint partnership between Sunset Hospitality Group and San Carlo Restaurants, Signor Sassi is situated within St. Regis Gardens – on the rooftop of Nakheel Mall in Palm Jumeirah. Like its London sibling, the Dubai venue promises to offer an exquisite dining experience that combines Italian hospitality with a distinguished menu.
The venue’s layout and design, crafted to create an inviting atmosphere, draw inspiration from the luxurious villas nestled along the shores of Lake Como in Northern Italy. So expect to encounter coloured marbles, highly polished timbers, and an eclectic mix of designer furniture and décor elements.
Guests can anticipate a range of exquisite dishes, including signature offerings such as Lobster “alla Catalana” with Tomatoes and Onions, Avocado Bernardo Salad with Prawns, Lobster and Cocktail Sauce, Veal Milanese with Potato Sticks, Grilled Jumbo Prawns with Fennel, Orange and Mullet Roe, Tagliolini with Caviar and Lemon Sauce, and Risotto “Signor Sassi” with Porcini Mushrooms and Truffle.
Other Signor Sassi’s favourites include The Famous Spaghetti Lobster, Seared Veal Escalope, Braised Beef Short Ribs, and a delightful selection of artisanal pizzas, including Pizza with Burrata, Rocket and Truffle.
Signor Sassi will have two bars – one in the indoor restaurant and another on the covered terrace that will also feature a specially designed fountain. They will be manned by an Italian team specialising in the restaurant’s renowned selection of classic and specially crafted Italian cocktails. Among them, the signature Negroni, garnished with a classic orange peel. Wine connoisseurs will find delight in the extensive wine collection, featuring the finest Italian wines and a curated selection from around the world.
For the first month, the restaurant will be open for dinner service only from 6 pm to 2 a.m., with all-day dining available from October onwards.
