Authentic Italian trattoria specialising in fresh pasta Ravioli & Co., has opened its doors in Burj Daman, DIFC. The restaurant seats up to 40 guests across its indoor and additional to the outdoor terrace area.

This authentic trattoria is a home-grown licensed concept founded by close friends. With a shared passion for easy, yet wholesome Italian meals to be enjoyed in the company of family and friends, they transcended this feeling into the vibe of the new eatery.

With its rustic décor of old flooring, aged wooden tables, exposed ceiling, metal wire lights, antique accessories and an open kitchen, the restaurant exudes a quaint charm. From Italian breads such as focaccia and grissini baked in-house to fresh handmade pasta, Ravioli and Co. boasts of a genuine Italian experience. What’s more, the atmosphere depicts the essence of home-style cooking at familiar neighbourhood spots reminiscent of olden Italia for which the country is known and loved.

Head chef Eros Brambilla, who hails from Northern Italy, reveals a carefully curated menu offering a plethora of made-from-scratch pasta dishes, prepared daily by an in-house sfoglina (pasta lady). With customer satisfaction at the heart of its foundation, simple dishes that go beyond pasta and highlight flavours of Italy are served in generous portions fit to share around the table – just like home.

“We wanted our customers to feel comfortable, as though they are at home. Comfort food is not only about the dish itself, it’s the way you share it with your family and friends and create memories that last a lifetime. Italian food is not all about pasta and pizza; you can travel for an entire year from North to South and taste a different dish every day, which is what our menu aims to do; highlight every aspect of Italy. We hope our customers get a taste of Italy through every dish,” says Brambilla.

Incorporating high quality ingredients sourced directly from Italy or local produce such as zucchini, eggplant and spinach, some of the key menu items are Ravioli Al Nero Di Seppia, Tagliatelle Al Ragu’Di Fassona, Gnocchi Alle Melanzane and Filetto Con Porcini. In addition, there is an indulgent line-up of classic Italian homey desserts, which include Tiramisu Con Nutella, Torta Paesana, Bonnet and Millefoglie.
