Description: 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.)

I'm not a fan of the Emirates Palace to be frank. It always feels like a 7 star mausoleum than a hotel not that I've ever done more than eat there at other people's (ie my company's) expense. And my latest visit to this restaurant did nothing to change my opinion that this is the best way to go.

The food's fine or to be fair very nice, but honestly that's all it is. There are Italian eateries that are just as good or better both in Abu Dhabi and Dubai at a fraction of the price and without all the parade that says "you're eating in one of the most expensive hotels around".

My husband and I have visited this restaurant twice during our stay at the wonderful Emirates Palace. The outside terrace is a lovely place to dine on a warm evening. We are on half board and the menu is very comprehensive. The food is really fresh and beautifully presented. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Looking forward to one more visit before we return home! Thank you.
