Il Borro Tuscan Bistro was named the best restaurant in Time Out Dubai’s 2018 Restaurant Awards. 

The Italian outlet in Jumeirah Al Naseem, which also picked up the 'Best Italian' award, works with ingredients supplied by the original estate in Tuscany.

Time Out Dubai describes the restaurant as: "Simple, yet delicious, the fresh produce does the talking in the dishes here, all of which are served up in an upmarket, yet unstuffy environment. Inside boasts white tablecloths and olive trees, while outside you’ll enjoy views over the Turtle Lagoon."
