Hey Habibi, made your weekend plans yet? We have your Saturday night covered. Join us for one of the most memorable Saturday Nights in Dubai.  Do it Italian style at Trattoria by Cinque, FIVE Jumeirah Village

Saturdays Are For Italian Nights

Get your crew together for an epic Saturday night in Dubai. Everyone’s favourite Italian trattoria, Trattoria by Cinque in FIVE Jumeirah Village. If you’re looking for some of the best Italian food in the city, look no further. This signature menu offers delicious authentic Italian cuisine in hearty, trattoria-style portions. How authentic can it be, you ask? Well let’s just say, our Italian chef (hot outta Scicily, FYI) may have borrowed the recipes from his Nonna.

That’s right, eating here feels just like sitting down to a delicious bowl of pasta in Nonna’s kitchen. In fact, you might temporarily forget that it’s Saturday night in Dubai as your taste buds are transported into the heart of Italy thanks to the fresh ingredients and authentic Italian flavours.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. There’s no need to rush your food journey. Start your epic Saturday night in Dubai with an aperitivo and cocktail at the beautiful IG-worthy bar that overlooks the buzzing venue and wood-fired pizza oven, right in the heart of Trattoria by Cinque. We simply insist you try one of our signature sips while you sit back and soak up the high-energy that surrounds you in this venue.

Feeling peckish? Of course you are. Get your food experience started with a delicious pinsa, hot out the oven. Not tried pinsa before? Even more reason to make this Saturday night in Dubai memorable! Plus we have different flavours, so we recommend ordering a few for you and your gang so that you can taste a slice of each! Try the Melenzana made from Aubergine, buffalo mozzarella, pesto and parmesan if you’re looking for a scrumptious vegetarian option, or try the Salsiccia E Friarelli with beef sausage, friarielle, chilli, parmesan and provola- okay, is your mouth currently watering too? Or just ours?

Next, take your gang to your table and get comfy. You’re in for some really really good, authentic Italian cuisine. Plus, we’ve added a little something extra to make this an even more epic Saturday night in Dubai. When the clock strikes 8pm, your favourite (and ours) Italian live band kicks into action… welcome to the stage, The Youngers! Sing along, vibe and have yourself a fantastic time while they serenade you (& your pasta!).

Vibing really works up an appetite, doesn’t it? That’s the point. Munch along while you vibe. Looking for some food recommendations. Here our some of our fave orders…

  1. Burrate Pugliese

Let’s be honest, are you even eating Italian if there isn’t burrata? The Trattoria by Cinque Burrata cold starter is super creamy (just the way you like it), with fresh peppery rocket and super sweet tomatoes – which, FYI Chef Marco has brought in from Italy.

  1. Insalatina Di Polpo

Say hi to your new fave Saturday night in Dubai starter. This octopus served with celery, green beans, potatoes and olives comes served pretty as a picture so be sure to take a snap before you dive in.

  1. Arancini Sicillani

More in the mood for a hot starter? Honey, we got you. Tuck into these crispy risotto rice balls stuffed with beef and parmesan. Honestly, comfort food doesn’t get better than this!

  1. Fettucine Alla Bolognese

There’s a reason this is officially our most ordered dish on the menu, and not just on Saturday nights in Dubai but every single day of the week! There’s something about the perfect wagyu ragout, tomato sauce, parmesan and basil combination that always has everyone coming back for more!

  1. Profiteroles

There’s only one rule when you come to Trattoria by Cinque and that’s to never (ever) skip dessert! Yip, pretty great rule, wouldn’t you say? And a pretty great way to spend your Saturday night in Dubai, wouldn’t you agree? Well, we have plenty of desserts for you to choose from, and again, we recommend ordering a ton for the table (or yourself) so you get to try them all! This choux pastry, whipped cream, chocolate ganache and hazeulnut combination is just what your sweet tooth dreams of!

See you on Saturday night?
