Celebrate Christmas the Italian way this year
We all love December and nothing can compete with spending a day outdoors during the festive season.
So, when we heard about Filini Garden, a cozy and lovely new terrace that opened just on time for the Festive Season launch, we knew it’s where we wanted to head to during the winter break.
Filini Garden – which will be open throughout the whole winter – is a newly-opened lounge and dining concept on Yas Island serving Italian delicacies in the Capital.
Some of the traditional Italian recipes to taste there this festive season
Feeling traditional? Try the Tacchino Arrosto, created from an Old World recipe with an authentic, artisan taste. The delicious Italian flavour of this roasted butterball turkey breast is locked in during the slow oven roasting process, and served with a chestnut and rosemary stuffing, and cranberry pan juices.
Tacchino Arrosto AED 85++
An Italian Christmas couldn’t happen without the classic Panettone? Filini Garden serves up its homemade baked Panettone with zabaglione filling (a simple Italian custard dessert made with egg yolk and sugar), Italian meringue and chocolate gelato.
Classico Panettone Meringato AED 30++
