La Vigna, Century Village

by Jannat & Pawan Manghnani on June 25th, 2016

About

La Vigna is the first restaurant to open at Century Village. Depicting the rural Italy with brick walls and wood paneling, La Vigna is a rustic place where simple Italian cuisine at its best is served.  Besides the traditional pasta dishes, a live wooden oven bakes some of the best pizzas in town. Risottos as well as grills and seafood come highly recommended.

Meals can be accompanied by great Italian wines at very affordable prices. Outdoor seating is available too and diners can enjoy the buzz around Century Village while listening to the cascading water from the fountains nearby.

Review

Ever since moving to JLT, which we now call the other side of town, we’ve rarely come to Old Dubai just to hang out, except for yesterday when a bunch of old friends decided to catch up! Enter Century village, where we’ve spent maximum of our yesteryears partying and chilling around!

This time we decided to head to La Vigna. It was wifey’s first time and I was convinced she would like it!
​Famished we, demolished the bread basket that was served to us! Hot slices of french baguette topped with garlic totally set the mood for the evening. since it was a big group and too many opinions we settled to call for everyones favs:

Garlic Bread with Cheese:
What can possibly go wrong with this one? Its always perfect regardless of where you order it from and the best part, its an instant hit with the kids, so we called for a double portion to be devoured by tots and adults alike!
​We decided to order our drinks at this point and everyone gave their individual preferences! The wife and me stuck to our regulars which was Vodka-Diet Coke for her and Scotch for me! The others had an extensive menu to choose from and opted for red wines and some rose wine too!
​Bruschetta:
They have 7 servings in one portion which a bit random i guess? But its a good enough serving for a small group! Their version comes with mushrooms, black olives, chopped tomatoes and mozzarella cheese! The mushrooms might seem a bit weird to taste at first but they actually compliment the taste! 
​A few long conversations and a few refill of drinks later, the tummy growled and luckily we had set ideas in out heads about what to have for dinner so everyone just put it out there to be placed. We ordered:

Chicken And Mushroom Risotto:
Yes, we are Indians and yes we customise everything that we can and yes our first choice always is chicken and mushroom. As, amused as our server was while placing the order, he complied and gave us exactly what we asked for! The risotto rice itself is very tricky to cook, but them being pro’s its something we didn’t have to worry about! They presented the dish with a baked twirl of parmesan which was abducted by my wife and inhaled in a second.
​Chicken And Mushroom Pasta:
Yes, Customization at it best! Every Indian child has grown up eating and loving penne with chicken and mushrooms tossed in béchamel sauce, and this was no different. Nostalgic, but not different!
​Ravioli Spinaci e Formaggi:
I love me a good ravioli. One which is not too thick on the pasta skin and has a good tasting filling inside! This one was just mediocre! I was expecting bigger raviolis and better tasting spinach filling. But since it was drenched in a creamy cheese sauce it was edible. 
​La Vigna Pizza:
House special, this one comes with veggies, chicken and sun dried tomatoes! Quite appetising when hot!
​Verdure Pizza:
​Similar to the La Vigna, except for the chicken of course! It was a treat for the veggie people on our table.
