A homegrown concept offering a range of Mediterranean-inspired dishes is set to open at The Pointe, Palm Jumeirah today (September 7).

Il Passaggio is the latest addition to the Dubai dining scene and features open glass kitchens where customers will be able to view the bakery, pasta, pizza, and dessert teams as they prepare their dishes on site.


The contemporary-styled venue has fresh white walls adorned with black and white prints, with touches of luxury added with the marble tables and eye-catching light fixtures. Meaning ‘passage’ in Italian, Il Passaggio customers can choose whether to sit at the pizza station to watch their creations come to life in the glass oven or enjoy the views across the Palm on the wicker furniture on the terrace.

Open from breakfast until the evenings, the wide ranging menu offerings everything from acai bowls and shakshuka to truffle croissants and French toast.

There are soups, salads, burgers, pizzas, and pasta dishes, with the signature Il Passaggio pizza featuring black summer truffle, bresaola, grilled artichoke, Rocca, tomato sauce with mozzarella and a sprinkle of parmesan, likely to be a firm favourite.

There’s also a mini-menu for children which includes the likes of chicken tenders, while you can end your meal with homemade ice cream no matter what your age.

Il Passaggio is open Sunday to Thursday: 9am to 10pm, Friday and Saturday: 8am to 10pm. Breakfast served daily: 9am to 12pm
