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.

Service is good (courteous efficient staff) albeit a little slow during crowded hours; food is great

Thank Sanjeev_Shukla

Dear Sanjeev_Shukla,

Thank you very much once again for visiting both of our restaurants and taking the time to review both of them on TripAdvisor.

We do hope that you could easily find a delicious vegetarian dish easily in here as you did in Cho Gao.

We sincerely hope to see you again very soon in both restaurants and our other outlets.

Kind Regards,

I honestly had better nights there already... both service and food wise. But generaly the service is slow, and unattentive. We wanted to change tables and were told we could not sit where we would have liked to, as all tables were reserved. Turnes out we were one of the last tables to leave and noone even touched the said section. -- We had to wait quite a bit till someone took the order, but at least food was delivered fast. The bruschetta was surprisingly served in three variations which i dnt remember being stated in the menue (only 1/3 bread versions was brushetta like you know it) but it was delicious. My tortellini ricotta spinachi, a classic and my all time favorite came in a different sauce which was nice for a change but unfortunatly the tortellini tasted like bought and far away from homemade. Nice mediocre italian place, will return with the promotion vouchers they have atm... lets see if it can get some more points for the next dinner.

Dear skyhigh99,

Thank you very much for your time to review our restaurant in TripAdvisor.

We do apologize for this specific experience; we were fully booked on that given evening and did not meet your expectation.

We will ensure great service and food in your future visits to Spaccanapoli; to be as satisfactory as your previous ones prior to this very event.

Kind Regards,

I am a big fan of Italy and all things Italian. Hence why I approached Spaccanapoli with apprehension; after all, I haven't had a decent and accurate italian meal ever since my last visit to Italy (which is 10 years). Last night, I was taken back to Italy through a mesmerizing dinner. (Thank you B. for taking me there)

Our meal consisted of a Salad, Talgiatelle and Pizza, the whole accompanied by a fine Sauvignon Blanc. It was exquisite. The past cooked just right, the sauces had that Italian flair, and above all, the service was nothing short of stellar.

For a taste of Italy, whenever you are in the UAE, do drop by. You won't regret it. It is the best pizza, best pasta you can have outside of Italy.

Buongiorno Marc K,

We are very happy that our “gondola” had taken you back to Italy and return with satisfaction and more great memory.

In this coming August we will offer a new program “4-hour pasta or pizza” every Saturday, definitely something to look forward to.

We hope to see you again in August and many months to come.

Ciao,
Ivor E. Prestwood

We dined here recently. For our appetizer we found the potato and leek soup outstanding (highly highly recommended). The mushroom soup was a touch too salty but good.

For our main I had the lamb tenderloin (perfect, and done medium rare perfectly). The char-grilled prawns were also a big hit.

Finally, desserts were nice without being spectacular.

Service was prompt and friendly, with an eye to ensure our order was correct (we did have an accent, and that extra effort was appreciated).

Dear TypeYourNameHere,

Thank you very much for your professional dish-to-dish review and sharing it on TripAdvisor.

We are very happy that your visit was satisfactory and wish that you informed us regarding your soup when you were here so we could change it to your liking right away, for your successful experience is what we aim for.

Also, thanking you for being patient with us since we definitely have many accents as well.

Great pizza with a wide range of other meals to choose from. The price after 7 is representative of the quality.
