On a overnight stay at the Emirates Palace, the husband decided to satisfy the foodie in me... and what a satisfaction it was! The Emirates Hotel restaurants are one of the finest and this definitely comes in that category. Reservations are definitely needed. The interiors are grand and opulent, loved the ambience - perfect date night. As you settle in...... More

We had a quiet lunch as we were only the second table in the whole restaurant at the time so we obviously got a lot of attention from the staff who were extremely friendly. The food arrived promptly and it was delicious and really well paired with a glass of wine.

Gorgeous food, we had deep friend seafood, pizza cooked in their large wood fired pizza oven and steak. All delicious, only criticism was tables were so huge it was hard to feel the atmosphere was intimate for a couple as we couldn't even reach hands across the table! Prosecco was also delicious and service was excellent. (And they organised the... More

Took some of my friends for lunch to Mezzaluna. The restaurant manager Danny made sure that we are looked after. Had some minestrone soup, pasta with seafood and carpaccio. Everything was very Italian! Mezaluna is the place where Italians go for Italian. Been here before and always looking for an opportunity to go back.

On a beautiful April evening we took a drive to the Emirates Palace where my partner had booked a dinner reservation. If you have never visited, when you arrive it is just full of grandeur. On entering make sure you look up, the ceiling is just wonderful, everywhere you look is just wonderful. We arrived at the restaurant and had... More

The hotel is a showplace. The restaurant was super flexible with the reservations. We had to reschedule twice due to our tour schedule. The service was attentive and professional. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. I would recommend a visit. The entrees are pricey.

Thank Nature95

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.)
