Homegrown in Dubai by two Emiratis with a love for Italy and its cuisine, Monno Ristorante is Jumeirah’s newest artisanal Italian eatery.
At Monno, fresh and natural ingredients imported from Italy are carefully calibrated and prepared, to deliver a nostalgic journey of the country’s most cherished culinary traditions. From exclusively using San Marzano tomatoes to importing artisanal Italian cheeses and olive oils for handmade pasta and genuine Neapolitan pizzas, Monno’s menu also features a range of antipasti, main courses and traditional desserts.
Highlights of the menu include the ‘Carpaccio di Gambero Rosso’ – red shrimp carpaccio with Stracciatella, ‘Ravioli al Tartufo’ – homemade ravioli with buffalo ricotta filling and Parmigiano Reggiano sauce, topped with fresh truffle, the ‘Milanese’ is a signature – a whole veal rib coated in breadcrumbs and fried with clarified butter, served with mashed potato and burnt lemon powder, as is the ‘Branzino all’ Acqua Mediterranea’ – pan-fried Chilean seabass served with tomato water, red pickled onions, confit tomato, chili caviar and caper leaf.
For those with a sweet tooth, a warming, oozy Chocolate Souffle with homemade roasted hazelnut gelato is sure to end the experience on a comforting note, as would the classic and elegant Tiramisu made with indulgent layers of creamy mascarpone, lady finger biscuits, espresso and cocoa powder.
Monno is located at 304 Al Wasl Road, Jumeirah 1, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and is open daily for lunch and dinner from 12:00pm to 12:00am.
