We had a delightful meal which we were able to enjoy sitting outside in the shade. Service was first class which complemented the excellent food.

The place to go for a healthy seafood dinner by the sea at the Emirates Palace. Very attentive service but not annoying.

very disappointing .. we had lasagne and gnocchi .. the food was mediocre, mainly bland, very overpriced, service was rushed and without a hint of class and sadly our servers had attitude, especially the maître d .. even the chocolate fondant was overcooked and not fondant (runny) inside at all .. this venue doesn't even deserve a long review .....

I see from the other reviews that it has received high scores - and maybe we visited on a bad day - the service was poor, the meny not at all exciting - and the food when served - not even close to an Italian feeling.. and it was "too posh" to have Italian pizza on the menu. And to... More

Had an opportunity to celebrate a small family reunion and found this to be the ideal venue for this occasion. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the setting. The wine list and the menu offer a wide variety of Italian specialties (no pizza though). Try the mixed appetizers and indulge on the pasta or the risotto, all prepared to perfection! WE... More

Went here on halfbord as guests of Emirates Palace Hotel. Service was quick and attentive. Food was great, loved my Vitello Tonnato, the fresh pasta and the warm Chocolate Fondant. There is an alcohol free prosecco in the bar menue, I enjoyed very much. Our table was outside, beautifully set and illuminated near a fountain. A nice evening!

I'm a repetitive customer and if the place where I eat satisfies my palate with fine food and wines precious, of course will be visited the next... More

Located in the self proclaimed 7 star Emirates Palace hotel, Mezzaluna offers a nice Italian menu with wines to match. Try to get a table outside in the 'cooler' months of the year and share some dishes. Bring your wallet but it's worth it. Risotto with Monk fish cheeks and squid ink was beautiful

It pains me to say it, but the service in one of the Emirates Palace restaurants was woeful when we visited it. We live in Abu Dhabi so we were not staying in the hotel.and we have no comment about the hotel accommodation which I am sure is well deserving of its high quality rating.. However one evening we had... More

We have been to the Mezzaluna everytime we were in Abu Dhabi. It used to be our favorite restaurant and the whole family was looking forward to going back there for dinner but it was a little dissapointing. We were seated by a friendly server but none of the servers asked to take our coats, so they were hanging over... More
