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.

“A pity about the smoking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant would get a full rating for atmosphere and food if it wasn't for the terrible smell of cigarette smoke throughout. Even in the supposed non-smoking section it is very strong. A real pity as it is spoiling the place. Instead, go down stairs to the non-smoking Asian restaurant.

“Good food and atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Went there for dinner on one of the busiest night in Abu Dhabi as it was their national day. Streets were packed. I had a craving for some pasta. Came across this Resturant by chance. We had no reservation, we got seats after waiting for 5 min. The atmosphere is good. . The menu has a huge variety of dishes, something for everyone. Although our server was good I felt the service could have been a little faster. The price is on the high side. But I recommend to pay a visit.

“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.
