Hi Is this restaurant halal and is the food alcohol free?
26 October 2016|
Answer
Response from aiza_lakwatsera |
Yes, the restaurant is Halal certified. There are foods that comes with alcohol, it has an indication in the menu. Much better if you inform your server because they can make you a non-alcoholic food if you like.

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.
