This past weekend my family attended the Sheraton Abu Dhabi & Resort’s La Mamma’s Launch of Pizza Bambini!  As we walked in we were welcomed with chef hats and aprons.  We were seating together as a family and as my husband and I filled our plates with yummy cheeses, breads, pasta and all the authentic Italian flavors while the children were entertained by creating their own pizzas!

IMG_5333My daughter who has a gluten allergy was even able to get her own gluten free pizza dough so she could enjoy the experience with the whole family.  The energy was amazing throughout! Children giggling as they were getting their faces painted and parent happy as the children had a hands on activity to keep them busy so all could enjoy.  She was even presented with a gluten free cake so she didn’t feel left out when it was time for dessert!

Pizza Bambini experience is available every day at La Mamma for lunch and dinner.

Children’s pizza is AED 45 net per child.

Children’s pizza and a dessert is AED 65 net per child.


“Kids love getting their hands dirty as much as they enjoy eating crispy slices of pizza. Letting them decorate their own dough with their favourite toppings seemed like the perfect recipe for a joyful family meal.” – explains Massimiliano Venturelli, Director of Food & Beverage for the hotel as well as proud father to 3-year old Sofia. “Italian food is all about bringing loved ones together. At La Mamma, we would like to create many happy memories for Abu Dhabi families.”
