“Pizza Perfect”and sooo much more… By Farid Nouisser

It was time for a pizza party with a bunch of kids saying good-bye for the summer and what better place to host such an event than at Al Ain’s very own L’Italiano’s. So off we went with five adults and seven kids in tow to discover a gem of a pizzeria at Al Jimi Mall that was ready to take on the challenge of satisfying this eclectic, hungry bunch. I should probably point out that although we had pizza on our minds; L’Italiano’s is sooo much more than just another pizzeria, boasting a brand new menu that caters to a wide variety of tastes. We reserved in advance and upon our arrival were given a warm welcome by the manager Antoine, who quickly ushered us to a huge table already prepared for the party. His patience was astounding as he heroically took the orders of seven very fickle appetites, making sure not to miss a single detail. Our server Rodolfo quickly sprang into action along with the rest of the staff as the long list of savory appetizers suggested by Antoine began appearing for the adults to sample. We tried our best to pace ourselves, knowing that the main stay pizzas were still looming on the horizon, but the mouthwatering appeal of the delights placed in front of us was more than any mortal could bear and we naturally devoured the lot! After having satiated the entire party with their selection of unique pizzas, we were ready to order a crane service to remove us from the table, but to our combined horror and delight, Antoine rolled out the home style Tiramisu and ice cream for the kids – MAMA MIA! I could go on for days describing their signature stuffed and delicious thin crusted pizza but if you have not already discovered L’Italiano’s charm, then I suggest you make your way over to Al Jimi Mall to taste the difference quality makes. The amazing staff along with the wholesome original recipes will definitely speak for themselves. And if you are a foot ball fan, then why not check out their amazing patio and catch all the World Cup action live with the gang at L’italiano’s.
