About Us

Frankie's Italian Bar & Grill is an exciting award winning Italian restaurant concept, created as a result of collaboration between English culinary giant Marco Pierre White and jockey legend Frankie Dettori. The service combines fine - as well as casual dining in a relaxed and cosy atmosphere, featuring a menu with over 80 dishes reflecting authentic Italian cuisine. Located on the ever popular and busting JBR walk, Frankie's has a vibrant bar with live entertainment seven days a week playing all time favourites from Frank Sinatra to U2 and back.

The Story

Frankie's Italian Bar and Grill is based upon the partnership between one of the greatest chefs of all time, Marco Pierre White, and one of the most recognized award-winning jockeys, Frankie Dettori. Both Frankie and Marco are at the pinnacle of their respective fields and Frankie's Italian Bar & Grill is a direct result of this collaboration of talent.

The original restaurant opened in Knightsbridge and exapnded to Chiswick, Putney and Selfridges, London before partnering up with RMAL Hospitality and oepning its first UAE restaurant in Dubai, 2007.

The stylish restaurant is an eclectic mix of relaxed Italian dining and sumptuous Italian fare. Marco Pierre White and Rmal Hospitality have together reworked, updated and improved classic recipes to add a modern twist to the more conventional Italian recipes of the past.

The menu is a fusion of the traditional such as lasagna, pizzas and bruschetta, alongside innovative dishes of truffle rice croquettes and eggplant roulade. Together Marco and RMAL have deliberately put food in the foreground; with only the freshest produce being used to create the carefully crafted recipes. Marco Pierre White has become synonymous with a superior culinary experience and Frankie's Italian Bar and Grill is a clear reflection of this.
