Carefully designed to evoke the grand tradition of ristorantes throughout Northern Italy, this perennially popular restaurant within the stunning five-star Emirates Palace Hotel is a must for anyone craving authentic Italian specialities. Consistently named as one of Abu Dhabi’s best Italian restaurants, Mezzaluna serves hand-crafted, regional Italian dishes with tastes so bold that you’ll be transported to the tree-lined roads, undulating hills and sun-kissed fields of Italy while you eat. Not that you’ll need transporting – the views from the restaurant are of the sandy beach, crystal blue waters of the Arabian Gulf and the Emirates Palace Marina.

The friendly staff at Mezzaluna receives every guest as though they’re family, with a warm welcome and a dining experience that is thoroughly Italian. You might choose to dine inside this beautiful restaurant, with its vaulted ceiling, curved open kitchen and frescoed walls. Alternatively, you might choose a seat on Mezzaluna’s expertly designed terrace, where you can gaze out over gorgeous views as you drink and dine.

Whether you prefer paccheri pasta with lobster, langoustine and asparagus; stuffed baked lamb loin with Cerignola olives; or a simple Margherita pizza, Mezzaluna’s helpful staff will guide you to a dish that’s perfectly suited to your unique palate. The menu here is bursting with the finest ingredients sourced throughout Italy, from seafood and artichokes from Sardinia, to blood oranges and fine sea salt from Sicily, and olives and olive oil from Liguria. Close your eyes, and you could just be in Italy!

Once you’ve had your fill of fresh Italian fare, be sure to indulge in one of Mezzaluna’s delicious desserts. All the sweet treats on the dessert menu are traditional Italian, so whether you go for classic tiramisu, a ricotta cheese tart, lemon sorbet or a scoop or two of gelato, you can be sure to end on a high.
