Founded in San Marzano, Naples, by Andrea Miracolo, Pizzarea Miracolo da Andrea has been serving artisanal pizza since 1989. Today his sons Marco and Francesco Miracolo have continued their father’s legacy and expanded the brand to Dubai. Italian restaurant Miracolo has opened in Dubai’s Burj Daman building. Marco is known as a master of pizza-making, teaching his technique at schools across Italy and receiving certification to teach pizza-making globally. Francesco, meanwhile, will be managing the restaurant while his brother cooks up a storm.
It can’t be argued that recipes handed down from generation to generation carry special significance in terms of authenticity, and that’s precisely the appeal promised by Miracolo. In an interview, co-owner and manager Francesco said: “It is a pleasure and honour to bring our family business from Napoli to the UAE. We are beyond excited to build a relationship with the region and its lovely people. The space is designed to look like an osteria in Italy, with trinkets displayed throughout the venue. Truly a place where guests can enjoy both the best authentic Italian dishes and the calm ambience perfect for an exquisite dinner.
Like a true family-run operation, both their wives will also work in the venue, providing guests with the best Italian hospitality. Its menu offers a range of flatbreads made with a special dough and ingredients hand-picked in Italy by Marco himself. Some culinary highlights include pizza embellished with caviar, a perfectly crunchy yet cloudy double-cooked pizza, and a deliciously simple chicken confit and truffle. Diners can also try Straccetti al Pomodoro (Strips of fried pizza, tomato sauce, black pepper, fresh basil and 24 months aged Parmiggiano Reggiano). And the famous, Cuoppo di Napoli (From the Neapolitan tradition, fried squid and shrimp battered with organic durum wheat flour and served with Sriacha mayo sauce.)
According to a review, Miracolo is described as “an amazing Italian restaurant located in DIFC. They have many gourmet pizzas on their menu, and I have to say the taste is fantastic. We’ve tried the one with seafood with Vongole Veraci from Italy. It is one of the few please in Dubai where you can eat an authentic Italian pizza with an Italian beer or a glass of wine.” Moreover, Miracolo offers a gastronomic journey that heavily incorporates heritage with an innovative modern spin. As an ode to their Italian roots, brothers and owners Marco and Francesco Miracolo serve up a plate of culinary nostalgia for guests looking to be transported to the narrow brick lanes of Italy.
