Deeply rooted in Italy’s culinary traditions, Casa Mia’s home-cooked Italian fare is exceptional in every way and recreates traditional specialities and regional renditions with great attention to detail. Evoking a sense of nostalgic comfort, the assorted offerings at this quaint Italian restaurant are a labour of passion which creates a wonderful symphony of flavours, texture and aroma that warms the hearts of expat residents and tourists alike.
Focusing primarily on the quality of the ingredients, the restaurant’s culinary experts have explored different regions across Italy, handpicking the finest, freshest herbs, organic products and fruits to curate a menu that abounds in variety as it does in authenticity. Giving diners a taste of ‘la dolce vita’ is signature dishes like Burratina, a creamy appetizer of Burrata cheese from Apulia served on a bed of heirloom tomato salad, Fettucine al rosmarino offering rosemary herbed fettuccine with slow braised, tender lamb in porcini mushroom infused parmesan cream that hit the sweet spot with its impeccable flavour balance. Another indulgence at this Dubai restaurant is the Risotto mantecato, a contemporary mix of tender, de-shelled prawns and Risotto al Limone with speciality herbs, or ‘Valdernese style’ Tagliata di filetto of tender beef fillets soaked in Valdarnese sauce prepared in an onion pepper base, spruced with sautéed slices of potatoes and delicate parmesan crisps.
Chef Maurizio and his team have left no stone unturned to ensure every dish honours Italy’s culture of gastronomy, for guests to experience the comforting flavours of the region’s specialities. Relying on ancient preparation techniques whilst taking Naples’ famous speciality a step further, Casa Mia is home to a special wood fired oven that uses 'Faggio' wood, imported all the way from Italy. Producing distinct, earthy notes upon burning, this speciality wood lends an inimitable flavour and aroma to the fresh thin, crispy, wood fired pizzas that Casa Mia is famed for. Promising a decadent finish to the extravaganza is Casa Mia’s famous Tiramisu, a melt-in-your-mouth treat of premium quality mascarpone espresso cream that is astoundingly light on the palate, or digs into the velvety Panna cotta alle bacche di vaniglia served with juicy slices of strawberries over a delicately spiced sauce of fresh red berries.
Akin to a rustic Italian trattoria, Casa Mia’s interiors are decked with dark wood furnishings, complete with wooden flooring and stone walls tastefully adorned with Italian paintings. The old-world elegance of the restaurant interiors are offset by the lively, energetic outdoors that overlook the piazza-style Le Méridien Village Terrace. Casa Mia’s ambience is a harmonious blend of contrasts, punctuated with the lingering aroma of freshly baked pizza and a whiff of fragrant herbs that permeate your senses, instantly transporting you to a little picturesque cittadina in Italy.
