Quattro Ristorante, Mankhool, Dubai

by Jannat & Pawan Manghnani on January 9th, 2017

About

A restaurant that serves quality vegetarian food and goes beyond traditional Indian fare, Quattro Ristorante is spread across three locations in Mumbai. The menu offers pure vegetarian Italian and Mexican cuisine, and a range of quality desserts that will leave you salivating.

​Quattro has a very rustic, and earthy ambience and is committed to delivering to its patrons an authentic fine dining experience. Quattro is also well known for its signature pizzas made in a traditional wood-fired oven.

Ambiance

Enter Quattro and you will be quite surprised with their modern and very chic interiors and the fact that the restaurant is not stuffed with unnecessary decor or lighting. Speaking about the lighting, we genuinely appreciate bright and well-lit restaurants as opposed to those dim "mood-setters", so this was perfection for us. The hues this place is drenched in are also very bright and modern, almost keeping is casual and easy. The do have community tables and private dining setting. 

Review

Quattro got me like "ooooh". Please let me get this straight, my wife and I are both ardent fans of meat (sorry vegans of 2016), and we were really reluctant to go here in the first place because it's complete 100% vegetarian food. But when some of our long lost friends chose this as a destination, we could not say no, and also since everyone we know on facebook and real life has been here and raved about it, we thought, well why not? There's plenty 24X7 KFC's open around just in case.

Moving on, Quattro surprised us not only by the way it looked but with their beyond par food and presentation. EVERYTHING here is Instagram-worthy on the outside but delicious and mouthwatering on the inside. Continue reading to get a larger picture of what we had endured...

Beverages

Mind Blown. We had a strawberry margarita, a berry mojito and a ginger and watermelon mojito. The margarita came completely frozen almost like an ice popsicle and I think that's  what made it so extra refreshing! The mojitos were served in mason jars of course but had an interesting twist with the dissolving cotton candy used as a sweetener when the fizzy was poured on top. Interesting and fun concept. The drinks are not over sweet, so that makes them very likable. 

Food

The food is the actual magical part about this restaurant. They have Italian as well as Mexican cuisine and a ton of variety for both. I remember getting lost in the menu, finding it unbelievably hard to decide what not to order. Anyways, lucky for us we were so many people that we got a ton of variety to eat. 

Below, is the freshly made guacamole of course, that they do by your table and then they sublimate it and serve them in avocado shells with corn chips. One of the best we have eaten in Dubai, hands down. 
Garlic bread with cheese for the kiddos on our table who by the way, loved them and inhaled them! 
Formaggio De Patate, which is basically baby potatoes tossed in olive oil, again topped with cheese. This was one of the best dishes on the table that night, and I'm pretty sure we ended up ordering it again. #mustorder
Risotto Palle, being soft cheesy risotto balls fried and served with cute chili oil pipettes for added but voluntary flavor. This one too was gone in seconds. Almost like an arancini with a twist. 
Margarita Upside Down Pizza, was a regular pizza- don't know why the funky name, though. Also taste wise it was pretty crispy and cheesy, just how we like it. With a dash of chili flakes of course. 
Southwestern Rolls, were rolled tortillas stuffed with peppers, rice, and beans topped with an ice cold scoop of guacamole. The key is to have it one go and experience the superb burst of flavors! 
Gnocchi Paprika was homemade gnocchi tossed in a garlic cream sauce mixed with chili flakes. It was commendable that the gnocchi was perfect, which is really rare to find. It was not extra dough-ey nor was it falling apart. The sauce gave the bland gnocchi the exact kick it needed. 
Canneloni Florentina, tubes of pasta filled with spinach, ricotta, basil and the works and topped with marinara and amooth mozzarella cheese. This was quite an interesting dish and somehow it had got all the flavors right. The portion size is enough to stuff two hungry people happily! 
Jalapeno Riso With Grilled Cottage Cheese was exactly what the description said, flavored rice served with grilled cheese. Now, this really excited the vegetarians but my wife decided to skip this one out (Too Much Food). But from that one bite that I took, it was interesting in its own unique way. 
Risotto Funghi, The clear winner and the star dish of the night. If I remember correctly we even ordered this twice, because everyone loved it so much. The rice was perfectly cooked and was creamy, but what made all the difference was the truffle oil drizzled on top. WE could smell it from a distance and even though we were stuffed by now, this just opened up our appetites again! One of the best risottos in Dubai!

Verdict

Quattro is one of a kind, waiting to be discovered a place in Dubai. When I asked my vegetarian friend why she loves the place so much, her simple reply was that not all Italian restaurants offer dishes where even the cheese and the desserts are completely vegetarian like Quattro does and that just solved it. It is definitely a must go place for the vegetarians but also for carnivores for us we left being completely satiated and happy with what we ate. Big kudos to the next big thing in Dubai.
