“Simply, enticing”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Reminiscent of good old times of the once cosmopolitan Alexandria, this place is still a refuge for those who value good cuisine and cozy ambiance. Although service is swift, waiters are polite and helpful, background French songs of the seventies playing, but it is all about the quality of food served which is more important. I can guarantee you that pizza served is one of the few best in town, although it is thin that fork can't get hold of it properly, but it is very delicious. Prices are normal for such a renown place. The ice-cream is not worthwhile to order and you can try better their nice profiterole as a finishing dessert.

“Good old Times”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Good and simple Italian food. Always fresh and no surprises. The place is not easy to find, but as it is well known, you can ask for it. At the entry it looks a little dodgy, but just enter, it is a Restaurant. If in Alex and looking for a change, then it is good.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

I am surprised that Chez Gaby has only ONE review!! Shame!! People have no idea what they are missing, seriously!

I guess only truly Alexandrians would actually know where is it. It is off Fouad Street on the right side. I guess the street is right across Teatro cafe. It might be easy to miss, but gems are always carefully hidden :)

It is an Italian restaurant and has a small discotheque. Once you enter you get the feeling of cosmopolitan Alexandria in 1940s, with checkered red and white table clothes, wooden chairs, soft music even the people are very classy around you.

Best thing to order is PIZZA and PASTA. They also have main courses and drinks including alcohol. Small portions of salad is served along with fresh bread and butter (couver)

I am absolutely in love with the atmosphere of the place, it brings back a lot of childhood memories and an era of Alexandria which I wished I had witnessed.
