La Vigna is situated inside Century Village in Garhoud, serving Italian cuisine. Being on a clean eat tip for the past few days, I was determined not to sabotage my eating plan. I was a little worried that the menu would be restrictive but was pleasantly surprised that this place offered quite a variety of dishes.
The restaurant has indoor seating which is traditionally decorated, it also offers al fresco dining. We opted to sit al fresco, with the AC sitting right next to us. It was a really hot and humid night in Dubai.
There was a delicious basket of bread that tempted me, I gave into one tiny bite dipped in olive oil and I loved it.
I ordered a strawberry margarita which was one of the best I have had this side of town. The mojito was also really good.
We had a cold starter, of tomatoes and mozzarella. The cheese was divine.
To eat we ordered:
Mushroom risotto. Creamy decadence with a delicious flavor of the mushroom coming through nicely.
The Alfredo was delicious, not too rich but perfect balance of cream. I had a mouthful and loved it. Portions weer generous.
I ordered the chicken breast and vegetables, which came with a side of mash and a tomato chilli sauce. I loved it. The chicken was perfectly cooked and the tomato paste very flavourful.
I really enjoyed this place, the service was prompt and efficient. They serve shisha too which is great if that is your thing. They even had a stage for performing acts. The prices are reasonable also.
