Looking for an authentic Italian dining experience? We are pleased to list Il Capo. With a unique concept inspired by the life, culture and character of Italian immigrants in 1920s New York, Il Capo at the Westin Dubai, Al Habtoor City, celebrates the love for authentic home-cooked food, lively music and hand-crafted drinks. Set alongside the spectacular Dubai Canal, guests are invited to enjoy breathtaking views while indulging in ‘Nonna’s’ traditional recipes.
Embracing the culture of both Italy and America, the food is an amalgamation of traditional favourites, paired with fresh ingredients to bring out the best of the cuisine. Newly appointed Chef Andrea Rossi and his culinary brigade unveil a carefully curated menu that boasts a selection of traditional recipes from across Italy. Highlights from the menu include, ‘Baccala Mantecato’ (garlic-scented cod from Vicenza), ‘Burrata & Aragosta’ (burrata and lobster tail) and ‘Polpo alla ‘Luciana’ (tender octopus stew, Napolitan style). Showcasing a hearty and decadent selection of homemade pasta, guests can choose from classic recipes prepared with a contemporary twist, including ‘Lasagna Goccia d’Oro’ (mushroom, veal ham and black truffle), ‘Pappardelle al Ragu d’Agnello’ (braised lamb shank ragu’) and ‘Fagotto alla Zucca e Mostarda di Cremona’ (pumpkin ravioli with on top Sardinian ricotta).
Il Capo is not just a dining destination, but features an impressive bar that makes for the perfect mid-week outing or a lavish weekend treat. Showcasing an extensive beverage menu featuring some of the greatest Italian vintages, alongside a cocktail selection influenced by the bar culture of 1920s America, Il Capo presents its very own interpretation of house classics; the ‘Bloody Boulevardier’ (where the Negroni met Kentucky’) and the ‘Caprese Daiquiri’ (freshly pressed tomato juice, balsamic vinegar, basil and rum garnished with creamy mozzarella).
Complemented by eloquent Art Deco interiors that feature stone floors, artistically caved ceilings and a quintessential brasserie style setting, Il Capo is guaranteed to take you back in time, replicating the 1920s in America, as seen by the eyes of a Ragazzo (young chancer). With an all new stellar Italian team, led by General Manager, Alessandro Vivoda, Il Capo’s multi-talented cast will serenade while serving their guests making sure that they are entertained throughout the evening. The playful theme also extends to the preparation of food, where signature dishes are brought to life with an exquisite theatrical presentation.
Experience the true essence of rustic Italy as Il Capo spontaneously erupts into a live musical performance around the grand piano, while guests enjoy Nonna’s favourite dishes. Celebrate life and success, while dining like a boss.
