Description: Welcome to Spaccanapoli! An Italian restaurant with a contemporary influence. Spaccanapoli has an innovative style, from its deliciously different culinary delights right through to its stylish appointments. Besides the innovative Italian cuisine, the most arresting aspect of Spaccanapoli is its view out on to Hamdan Street, you can watch the world go by in the warm comfort of old Napoli. As the sun begins to set on our fair city, it's time to head indoors, with two floors of Italian rustic styling's and a extensive menu all set around Spaccanapoli's meter long pizza oven, which offers you the unique chance to order a pizza large enough to feed the Abu Dhabi Harlequins. Along with homemade pasta, seafood dishes and Italian classics, Spaccanapoli will have you coming back time and time again. Open 12:00 - 23:00 daily.

“Italian job”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

This was my first try at a true italian cusine... And ill gladly say despite all te apprehension t was a true delight indeed... The unique way of serving the pizza (i'm a pizza girl so yea..) the one n hlf metre log pizza was a delicious and a eye-catching moment indeed... I loved everything... From the appetizer to the main course... The genuine salad... The pizza.... The dessert... It truly was bon appetite... And th hospitality of the staff made it all equally scrumptious...

“Best Grapes & Cheese Night in Abu Dhabi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Whenever I can, I head on over for the Grapes & Cheese Night with a group of girl friends. The value for money is excellent and not only includes decent beverages and a wide array of cheese, but also the anti-pasti buffet and freskly-baked bread, which makes all the difference. Always an enjoyable night! Looking forward to the next one.

“A good welcome to dining out in Abu Dhabi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Not too flash, not too expensive, busy but accommodating (and I'm talking about a Thursday night - the busiest of the nights in these parts!), with a good choice of genuine Italian dishes proposed by a very competent kitchen. Even though the predominantly Asian waiting staff don't really know the names of Italian favourites like Saltimbocca, it was not too difficult getting what my friend and I wanted: a plate of Fritto Misto di Pesce (too long in the fryer I'm afraid, and not enough dip) to share, a Saltimbocca (perfectly prepared with a quartet of interesting vegetables, including stuffed courgette and potato with olives), and a proper plate of bolognese - with tagliatelle (the Italians would never serve a meat sauce with spaghetti!). A good way to round off my first week in La-La Land.
