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.)

Attentive, courteous service, but £200 for two people to have a bowl of soup, a bowl of pasta, a bowl of ice cream each and a bottle of win, all of which were pretty average is excessive. Definitely paying for the experience of being in the hotel, and not for the food.

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 :)

Superb attentive service! Delicious authentic food. We sat outside in the restaurant's terrace area by the small fountains. Very atmospheric and romantic. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

Had our anniversary dinner here. This was not just a meal but a complete dining experience. Everything from the appetizers to the special anniversary dessert was nothing short of outstanding. Our waiter was on top of his A game...we were told he is probably the best one on staff. (Ask for "Ram"...you'll be glad you did!)
