I spent four years of my university days driving back and forth on Sheikh Zayed road admiring the high rise buildings whilst bracing myself through traffic to reach just in time for a day’s lecture.
Food options are not short on one of the most famous highways, and walking down the road, I’ve had my fair share of taste and indulging my palate into tasting a new cuisine. One of the spots, I clearly remember, served up classic and homey Italian fare: Luigi’s in Four Points by Sheraton Sheikh Zayed Road
Present day, I realize it is time to re-visit, as I walk in wearing heels while years ago, I walked in wearing my treasured beat down converse. Oh how times have changed!
I notice an alteration in design from what my faded memory recalled, a section exposing a view of the Sheikh Zayed road was now visible from the cozy and dimly lit interiors at Luigi’s.
A simplistic yet traditional menu, the food was robust and plentiful in portion. Although serving frozen and not fresh seafood, the taste was well masked with flavorsome ingredients from a lemony dill cream sauce delicately seeping through the perfectly cooked cream dory.
Succulent shavings of bresaola cured my pizza cravings with fresh ingredients layered over the pizza dough that required more kneading a less baking, the taste was spot.
Luigi’s has all the perfect settings: a hearty meal, immensely impressive service, freshly baked soft bread and twists to classic desserts, such a tiramisu made with mixed berries, delicious.
