The restaurant offer stunning views of the Arabian Gulf…

The heady temperatures Dubai summer are finally giving away to cooler weather and that means alfresco dining season is upon us. We know of a stunning spot where you can do that on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah.

Stunning Italian restaurant, Torno Subito has finally reopened its doors. You’ll find it on the ground floor at the futuristic W Dubai – The Palm hotel. Colourful and eclectic, this cool eatery fits right in there.

Celebrity Chef Massimo Bottura is the culinary brains behind the restaurant, which is his first outside of Italy. The inside of the restaurant is Instagrammable to a T (or an I), boasting a retro vibe from the 1960’s.

Marvel at the pops of pastel colors and cool artwork that adorn the walls, as well as the polaroid pictures dangling from the ceiling in the bar area. The flooring is decked out huge in stripes of black and white.

Outdoors on the terrace is where the ‘Italian Riviera’ feeling really starts, with colourful clusters of seating and pastel deckchairs. The decking looks out onto the golden sand and, beyond, the Arabian Gulf.
