No doubt the grandeur and the remarkable opulent atmosphere of this property is something one should experience at least once. Though it was a week day but it was a busy day; people engulfed in taking pictures, appreciating the live musicians’ performance and enjoying coffee...More

I never dine in Italian restaurants when I'm abroad. The flavors of Italian cuisine are not easily replicable. Suddenly I breathed a breath of my Italy at the Mezzaluna restaurant. Thanks for making me change my mind.

If you visit Abu Dhabi you have to visit this Restaurant. The Biryani with chicken or prawns, the traditional bread and the Sweets are my favourite :)

Lovely meal and excellent service. Outside table, a little breezy, but that was our choice as we were able to watch the fantastic firework displays from the comfort of our table. Highly recommended.

Take a culinary tour of Italy with Mezzaluna restaurant, known for the best Italian food in Abu Dhabi. Regional dishes from across the beautiful country of Italy form a menu that is truly unique, and lovingly prepared by the genius hands and heart of our passionate Chef. While dining on authentic fine Italian cuisine in the surrounds of Mezzaluna's expertly designed, custom-created terrace, it is easy to imagine yourself dining in the beautiful trattorias of Lombardia, Umbria or Toscana, with their tree-lined roads, rolling hills and sun-kissed fields. With echoes of a hot Italian summer, the Abu Dhabi weather permits you to dine al fresco with your family and friends, while trying new and exciting dishes in our award winning Italian restaurant. Two private dining rooms are also available for groups of up to 16 people and are available for early reservations for special celebrations, or to catch up with good friends over great Italian food. Mezzaluna has won awards as one of the top Italian restaurants in Abu Dhabi for the unique dishes and culinary offerings crafted here. Mezzaluna is located on the ground level of the Emirates Palace and has glorious views of the picture-perfect sandy beach, crystal blue waters of the Arabian Gulf and the Emirates Palace Marina. "La scoperta di un piatto nuovo è più preziosa per il genere umano che la scoperta di una nuova stella." Brillat-Savarin (The discovery of a new dish is more precious to human beings than the discovery of a new star.)
