With an interior that evokes the romanticism of a turn-of-the-century Tuscan villa, and a terrace that overlooks the waters of the Creek below, Focaccia is a hidden gem in Deira’s Hyatt Regency. With a Milanese chef in the kitchen, the menu serves up authentic and flavoursome Italian fare, from hearty pasta and robust mains such as beef tenderloin, to delicate Carpaccio.
