Enjoy flavors of Italy right here in Dubai!
We decided to start our long weekend by having dinner at this restaurant and what a great decision it was!
It’s a cute and cozy place with a homely vibe welcoming the customers to a relaxed meal even when short on time. A nice combination of blue and white colors with the decor and the seating, some of our favorite colors might we say! With Christmas coming right up, the place is all ready with their gifts and tree and who does not love the Christmas vibes!
Crumby is run by a couple Max and his wife Alessia who are very passionate about their venture. Their hard work has definitely paid off with the amazing dishes they serve be it pastas, pizzas, or sandwiches. They have a small team who makes sure you have a wonderful experience.

We started off with a Raspberry smoothie and a Pina Colada. Both the drinks are freshly made with less ice and more flavor. You don’t need a single season to enjoy these bright beauties, they are the perfect partner for any meal you decide to have.
Porcini Soup: A nutty flavor with porcini mushrooms, and creamy texture thanks to our favorite potato and vegetable broth. It is served along with croutons and cheese that makes for an amazing starter. The flavors were quite unique from the regular soups that you find be it lentil, chicken, or tomato soup. We asked for a single portion and the server was kind enough to split it into halves for us to enjoy it. We definitely recommend trying it, you can thank us later!
Daviola: At first look the pizza might look heavy to indulge in, but when you sink your teeth into it, the soft fluffy crust with the beef salami smothered in spicy oil and the cheese. We could go on about how cheesy and superb the pizza tasted, but that is for you to find out. There is a secret to their pizzas which you will not find elsewhere.
Chicken: A match made in heaven, chicken and cheese is the best combination out there. So for all those who are not fans of meat pizzas, this is your next best alternative. With the same recipe, the cheesy flavor and bang on taste! Usually italian pizzas have thin crust but at Crumbys you have a thick crust which does not end up in making you feel heavy, you can just keep eating the pizzas.
Gnocchi: After trying this dish previously, we are now on a forever hunt to find the best places that serve gnocchi! We totally love the feeling of having to bite into a cloud, so soft and mouthwatering. Thinking about it now, got us drooling. The red pesto was a nice touch giving it a creamy texture and a bit of color. This was the highlight of our night, and we surely will be back for more.
Mushroom Tagliatelle: Since, the gnocchi was so good, we had high expectations for the pasta as well and the dish passed with flying colors. Even after our mini photoshoot it still was warm and creamy. The sauce is not too thick which is what we get when we usually try to make the sauce at home. The pasta was cooked to perfection and became another one of favorites too.
Tiramisu: We had been hearing that this was the best tiramisu in town and were very excited to try it. We love tiramisu because coffee and cocoa who can resist that. It had the perfect balance between being not too sweet or bitter. It is not all talk either, they have received the best tiramisu award as well.
Our server Isomel did a fabulous job of hosting us. We had a wonderful time at Crumby.
The prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity offered. They are also part of the Zomato gold, so that makes the decision even easier.
We shall be back for round two of the gnocchi, pasta and tiramisu!
