We had dinner twice at the Mezzaluna during our recent stay at the EP. Both were simply outstanding, very good food and service. Special thanks to the restaurant manager who remembered us from previous stays and did everything to make our evening unforgettable. Very authentic Italian food and style as well as good wine list. We will come back.

My family and I decided to try out Mezzaluna after hearing about it from friends...and we were not disappointed! We booked a table for 7pm on a Friday evening and were surprised to find it was completely empty! Suffice it to say, we had our own private dining experience for the first half hour of our dinner! Best things we... More

We had lunch outside and although fairly hot...it felt like being in Rome or Milan. My lunch was nice seafood fettuccini with a glas of white wine with a name that i forgot but was suggested on the menu. One of my guests had a pasta with lamb stew and artichokes that looked delicious as well. We were in the... More

We have been to Mezzaluna before and we were looking forward to another visit. We chose to sit outdoors as the weather is still cool in the evenings and the courtyard is a great location to dine in. We had a huge Antipasti platter to share for 2 which to be honest is more like a main course and it... More

I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch. I don't want to jinx it. But I'm sitting here in Mezzaluna after a years hiatus and I've ordered the bolognaise and I am humming a happy tune and tapping my feet in anticipation. The bolognaise here is the best I've ever had. I've checked that the chef is the... More

The best Italian restaurant in Abu Dhabi by quite a margin. We have been there for dinner a few times over the last 2-3 years and every time it was a very special and memorable evening. Highly recommended for any special occasion. Simon

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.)
