Gusto’s Italian


Gusto is an Italian signature restaurant on the 18th floor of the recently opened Al Bandar Rotana hotel on Deira creek side in Dubai. It is a small intimate venue, the hotel’s version of a local slightly upscale trattoria, with an outdoor terrace with views of the creek and Dubai’s famous skyline.

Black and white colours with yellow highlights create a happy yet cosy vibe throughout. A white marble clad counter with engraved names of famous streets or piazzas in Rome creates a focal point in the space, where guests can take a pre-dinner drink before sitting down to enjoy a regional Italian meal either inside the restaurant or al fresco on the terrace.

Walls are clad with dark timber panelling & wall covering with an old roman street map print. Feature walls are clad with floor to ceiling timber and brushed brass shelving units displaying an array of artefacts and large jars with dried pasta. Details like the plates with an Italian street map beautifully compliments the design and feel of the restaurant.
