About
Spaccanapoli Ristorante is reminiscent of a charming rustic trattoria with its intimate alcoves, wooden furnishings and painted countryside murals. The name is derived from a long and narrow street in the Italian city of Naples which traverses the historic centre into two, and is the inspiration for the original 1 metre pizza. Spaccanapoli’s dishes are prepared with heart and soul using traditional homemade flavours and the freshest ingredients, and the menu features classic dishes as well as gluten free options for pasta and pizza. With a casual setting, intimate bar and library area, and delicious cuisine, Spaccanapoli has earned its place in the heart of Abu Dhabi residents.

Yes, the restaurant is Halal certified. There are foods that comes with alcohol, it has an indication in the menu. Much better if you inform your server because they can make you a non-alcoholic food if you like.
