Description: 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.

The service was very good and the venue is lovely. The pizzas appear to be good, but none of us tried them. The food we did try, including tuna steak and lobster-stuffed ravioli, wasn't as good as we were expecting, with the ravioli even being a bit of a disappointment.

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.

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.

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...
