La Vigna…. a bridge to Italy countryside.

No doubt, there are many places in Dubai now, where you can dine in, enjoy the indoor & outdoor ambience at the same time. Century Village is one of the oldest among all….. which offers you fine dining & memorable outing experiences. We had been there a number of times & this time we were invited to dine in at LA VIGNA, a true Italian restaurant that not only focused on interiors that represent the countryside of Italy with its wooden & red brick wall Decor, but also had maintained their authentic flavors since long. It has got a plenty of indoor as well as out doors seatings.

Considering the pleasant weather of Dubai now a days, we planned to sit out side.
