10 best pizzas in Abu Dhabi12 Comments 31 January 2012
Best for: A rustic restaurant experience
We ate: Mafiosa pizza
The pizza: A lovely base, firm but doughy with a nice bite and the toppings (tomato, mozzarella, bell peppers, salami, onions and black olives) make a great combination. In true Italian style the pizza is not overloaded with toppings, which is nice because each one has its moment on the taste buds and you really get to appreciate the herby sauce, the savoury cheese, the sweetness of the onions and the delicate flavour of the salami. All 13 varieties come with thin crusts and crispy bases: not huge, but certainly enough for two if you’re also having starters and a side salad.
The rest: The restaurant is decorated with brick walls and wooden beams, but unlike so many places which try to do rustic in Abu Dhabi it isn’t pretentious or cheesy. It feels authentic, comfortable and homely but the tables are nicely set – so your mother in law would approve.
Price: Dhs42.24 for Mafiosa pizza
Do they deliver: No, but you can order ahead and pick up for takeaway
Mark out of ten: 7/10
