“Consistently good”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

There's nothing fancy about the food here. However, the restaurant is tucked away in a little alleyway.

It can be a bit smokey; they allow smoking inside.

There's some outdoor seating too.

It's a great place for a cozy Italian dinner or just to meet up quickly for a beverage with friends.

Oh, and there are lots of vegetarian options.

“schnitzel fest nightmare. made me sick.”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

ok, it was stupid to order it. It came looking like a reject sheet of paper from a lazar printer, a little rolled. and a little thicker. it was stupid not to send it back. ( at 60 EL) But they had a picture of a delicious looking schnitzel and my son was already eating his chicken and mushroom pasta, which had no visible remains of either.
After I’d spent a while I realized the meat (what little there was of it) wasn’t veal. it might not have been meat.
This place looks cool and friendly, but in terms of food, its a killer. Stay away. The dinner made me and my son ill, and it was overpriced. for people who don’t know what Italian food is. the chef deserves to be forced to eat his schnitzel.

“Another great find in Zamalek”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

Small, with outdoor seating. Great home made pasta dishes. Reasonable prices. Avoid upstairs as it can get quite smoke filled.

“Small cafe style restaurant”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

Relaxed friendly atmosphere at la Mezzaluna. Tucked away just along the alley from the road. Had the pasta mussels (came with a basket of garlic bread). Delicious!

“Good little cafe”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

Mezzaluna is nicely hidden round a corner and actually cares about the food it serves. Inexpensive Italian basics and good coffee, as well as free internet, and not -too-loud music make it a brilliant hideaway. Strange but good breakfast menu.
