SACCI AL FRESCO SACCI FOR TTWO We visited L’Abbuffata – The Italian Brunch during Gourmet Abu Dhabi promotion. The Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort & Spa as one of the hotel partners of event has hosted it At Sacci, we thoroughly loved it and headed back to enjoy their Classic Italian treat on a fine weekend over the huge and refined set spread Buffet . DSC_0770 SACCI CAPRESE Standings:  It is the number 1 rated Italian restaurant in Trip advisor. DSC_0866DSC_0869Meeting with Chef de Cuisine Sacci – Stefano Micocci, he is from south Italy, and is here in UAE for past 3 yrs, He is fond of Asian, Indian & French food. He is associated with Westin chain for quite some time now. As per him Italian is the tastiest food yet with variety, he has also mentioned that most ingredients they used in Buffet at Sacci are from Italy. He enjoyed the mix of customers in this region and recommends Italian for being most flexible cuisine. DSC_0854 SACCI DININGWOW factor: Out of many buffet I have attended during my blog reviews I never get to spend so much of family time I had that day, it is because you can indulge in a Family table style brunch the Italian way at Sacci! Yes, it’s a cozy buffet where the ever smiling and well-informed waiters will serve each item to your table hence non-stop family time and memories revival and uninterrupted story sessions with friends and family.SACCI RISOTTO DSC_0830 Sacci indeed brings alive the aromas of the Italian cuisine. Their menu takes you on a culinary journey including a delightful selection of antipasti, Pastas, Pizzas, Main dishes and Desserts. Their welcome antipasto is so delicious with soft and crunchy Focaccia with par-balanced taste of Rosemary & tomato , They also served Panini with braised beef which is not as good as the former one. DSC_0824DSC_0849In starters we began with their Cold Antipasti a tavola: Marinated Zucchini with anchovies was a knock-out on your taste buds so moist and full of taste, fior di latte mozzarella was of stamdard liking however their calamari and prawns salad will burst the flavor streams in your mouth, panzanella , pinzimonio, beef carpaccio accompanies other Antipasti. (Caution: though some of it seems like mini bites but they are so filling hence till here keep yourself light as a trail of Italian treats is about to begin 😉 At first the combination of Hot and Cold items seems difficult to blend it but giving out totally unique range and balance, I can undoubtedly say this is one reason why it’s ranked 1. You simply cants decide which of the Antipasti is better than the other as both are flavorsome. DSC_0777Hot Antipasti a tavola: Baby octopus with potatoes, parmigianna, i-e basically Eggplant Parmigiana covered with quality cheese which surely augment the dish above your customary Abu Dhabi Italian cost. I tried the same at other places too but trust me now I can relate why it is so global- popular. Bellpepper scapese is more of a grandmamma recipe which is so simple and will definetly reminds of those times where in home you have eaten stuffed veggies with assorted fillings. DSC_0803Well I must confess I haven’t had such a big variety of pasta and all at its crest in taste and cooked at precision. Timings indeed matters a lot when it come to Italian Cooking and you can tell by aroma and tang how much love is involved in this cuisine and cooking at Sacci. DSC_0792 DSC_0781Crespella filled with mushroom in cheese béchamel sauce and Cannelloni Ricotta on Spinach bed were my favorites in the menu. Mezze Tagliatelle all’aglione was kid’s glee and staple appetite for them. After reaching to this mark we were so full to enjoy our Mains, we took a mini break and enjoyed outdoor view of pool and lush green terrace for a while unfortunately it’s a sandy day and couldn’t sit out for long due to dusty weather. I bet this place is amazing to sit outdoor and enjoy in good weather days. DSC_0796 DSC_0773 Main Course has arrived to the table in splendid manner, I must say I love the co-ordination and diners- psyche awareness level of the staff, they will bring the food on your table with full bang and will update you about each detail, you can check on the spice levels with them. We enjoyed our Carne e Pesce includes Picanha, it’s a prime cut of top sirloin and one of the very famous Brazilian Steak, Chef has done great justice to their roasted marination, harmonizing the savor of it with Cherry Tomatoes and parmesan, Slow Cooked Beef Ribs were also tender and well done. Grilled Prawns are king sized and yummy, Fish Fillet is of Mediterrean flavored and brought variety to this complete meat affair. Rabbit in Cacciatora Style is also served. It’s a famous choice for diners having low-cholesterol and leaner meat preferences. DSC_0806 DSC_0854 DSC_0846 DSC_0787 Contorni or the Sides includes Roasted Vegetables (I wish if more veggies are there and with some extra crisp), Spinach Gratin , Mashed and Baked Potatoes (has big serving, which I will rate 5/5 as I did not find it greasy) , Mixed Green Salad was OK. DSC_0822Desserts, most cheerful part of Sacci meal and was in abundance. You can’t just say No, even if you are not a huge fan of sweets. Lovely presentation and master patissier skills results in mouth-watering Dolci: Selection of Italian sweet mignardises, there is a world to choose from, though I am guilty of tasting from each on them. Believe me you will not at all feel sad to see a great meal come to a close, as you can count on the arrival of mignardises, to lift your mood and leave happy (OR)as my bubby Misha quoted “ Happily ever after” SACCI TIRAMISU DSC_0837 copy DSC_0838 SACCI CHEFS TABLE ADD ON: You may also enjoy their Formaggi range which is basically selection of Italian cheeses and variation of jams and crackers presented in cheese trolley and entice any cheese lover. Need a perfect ending try their Mocha coffee and cookies, you have indeed all reason to smile at SACCI. For More information on click Sacci & Westin AbuDhabi Facebook, Twitter, IG.
