Delicious authentic Italian cuisine but watch out...one serving of a main meal will easily serve 2 adults! We love our food and were forced to leave more than half of the delicious Wagyu beef lasagne and Spaghetti Carbonara. Fabulous live Italian singer in the evening...very romantic with outdoor seating although it did get very hot due to no ceiling fans.

I invited my wife for dinner to celebrate our Wedding anniversary at Mezzaluna and what an experience. The restaurant had decorated our table with red roses, the service was fantastic, the atmosphere awesome (albeit a bit humid and hot but that's not the restaurant to blame for). The food was excellent and after having finished our meals, we were surprised... More

lovely authentic food plus friendly staff made this a nice dinner. we sat outside (still hot at 9.30 pm...) but it was beautiful to sit there and enjoy the scenery plus a nice glass of wine and the food.

As we were staying for 10 nights and had the choice of 4 restaurants on our meal package we chose to dine here 3 times. The first time was not great, would of given it 3 stars as I struggled finding... More

The food is good but it misses the "amazing", as this restaurant is in the Emirates palace I expect that little extra, the one when I am done with my food I go wow that was very good italian food. And I know what I want, my sister lives in Rome so I get to sample pretty good italian food

The great disappointment was the restaurant had no view at the time of our visit (they placed pavilion in front of the restaurant. The food was average. Nothing's special at all.

Nice restaurant, but nothing new versus the classic Italian restaurants you can find everywhere in Europe. Try lasagna, it is very tasty and ask about the entertainment program before (there are some nights with life music)!

The Emirates Palace is my favourite Hotel in the UAE. I have been to all of the restaurants across recent times and generally the experience has been one of fine dining and excellent service. I have noticed on more recent visits that the standards appear to have slipped. This includes the quality of the service and on this occasion the... More
