“Nice Cozy Little Place in Zamalek”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

Came to dinner here with my son. It's a very cute little place which has a very European flair. Lots of young people come here. The food was prepared nicely and the pasta dishes are excellent. Wait staff was good. A very nice little Italian restaurant to visit.

“Delicious!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

I would only like to say that every time we're in Cairo, we have to pass by. My husband is italian and says it's one his favorite restaurants. And believe me, he is very picky about his pasta! The restaurant itself is not big or fancy but it's a cosy place if you're looking for some peace and quiet :)

“Food not bad, but service is terrible”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

For some reason there is a large number of waiters here but one never feels taken care of. It's difficult to be understood, drinks and food arrive at random times, and on top of that the waiters can be rude.

“A little break - a little snack!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013

Just around the corner, a bit hidden but very central 10 Meters from the 26th July street, This little Restaurant deserves a visit! Great italian food, I loved the variety of the pasta-dishes! If you work in Zamalek this place is recommended for a lunch-break. Go with a friend - and have fun in this little restaurant!

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
