Our Story

Benvenuti a Roberto's.

Roberto’s is the passion project of Mustafa Turgul, Executive Chef Andrea Mugavero, and Skelmore Hospitality who sought to feed Dubai’s discerning gourmets’ desire for an authentic, thoughtful and contemporary Italian fine dining experience. 

Our world-class team blends an admirably Roman devotion to food with Venetian hospitality and Milanese flair resulting in a unique and homegrown reinterpretation of Italian cuisine that we are proud to share with our city. 

Seamlessly drawing from old and new, classic and modern, traditional and contemporary, Roberto’s is a culinary affair that marries signature Italian authenticity with Dubai’s renowned gastronomic scene.

Each of our carefully curated concepts stays true to our commitment of bringing only the freshest, best quality and genuine ingredients to your table, complemented by the thoughtful design – resulting in three areas that create a truly inimitable sense of welcoming and celebration for all occasions:

  • The Ristorante, the main dining room
  • The Salotto, the buzzing lounge
  • The Cortina, the intimate  private terrace
