3. Torno Subito has a great new lazy Saturday lunch for you to try

This restaurant brings new meaning to beach chic. Step inside and you’re transported back to 1950s Italy, with funky retro artwork and decor, bright parasols, matching (beached) rowboats and changing stations, this spot is PERFECT for a long, lazy Saturday sprawl.

And now it’s got a fab lunch that’s 10010% worth your time.

This is a taste of Italy, so the brunch menu is big on everything Italy does best. Think sharing style, with lots of pasta, bread, pizza, plus a fantastic Torno Subito speciality tiramisu and there’s even an adorable gelato cart. It does not get much cuter than this.

How much? Prices from AED349 (soft drinks) AED499 (house drinks)
