La Vigna is an Italian restaurant in Century Village. The Century Village is a beautiful food hub for al fresco dining in the Garhoud Area. The place reminds you of beautiful European Villages with cobbled pathways, plenty of greenery, fountains. It makes the perfect venue to spend the weekends with family and friends.
As I walked into La Vigna, I was blown away by the cozy and charming interiors. The rustic brick walls, low mood lighting, the wooden chairs, the grand stairs- creates a cozy ambiance
We chose to sit outside as the weather was great. We were welcomed with a bread basket which was served with Olive oil and balsamic. The breads were fresh and delicious . They have an extensive bar menu with a variety of Wines to choose from. I tried their mocktail – Lady suzy which was a blend of apple, orange juices and peach syrup with soda. It was a very refreshing drink.
Coming to the food, we started off with the Caprese – The salad with Buffalo Mozzarella cheese slices, cherry tomatoes and basil leaves.
Next up were some hot appetizers
Bruschetta – This was loaded with olives, mushrooms, tomatoes, and mozzarella. The bread was just perfect.
Frittura Mista con Insalata Verde: This was my favorite. I loved the
For the mains we had :
Petto di Pollo alla Pizalola: The seasoned and grilled chicken breast topped with tomato sauce and served with veggies and mashed potatoes on the side. The chicken was tender and grilled to perfection.
Frutti di Mare: King Prawns, Mussels and Calamari in Mustard Cream sauce and Cheese served with veggies and Mashed potatoes on the side. The seafood was fresh and tasted yummy. The sauce was excellent.
Next up was the Pizza :
Quatro Stagioni: Tomato sauce with mozzarella cheese, Turkey ham, artichoke, olives, and mushrooms.The pizza was tasty. The slices were huge and I was really struggling to finish mine.
We ended the meal on a sweet note with Tiramisu and The crema caramellata con Frutti di Bosco, i.e. caramel cream topped with mixed berries. Both the desserts were done perfectly.
Overall, I loved the food here. The ingredients used are fresh. The presentation is on point and the portions are filling. Considering the food and the location, the prices are justified. La Vigna is added to my list of favorite restaurants in Dubai. Highly recommended.
