This Italian is away from the maain tourist sites, in Mohandiseen just north of the shooting club, but a nice little place if you are in the area anyway.

Good restaurants are VERY hard to come by in Cairo and whilst this is not the best food you'll ever eat, it's much better than some of the dross that ranks higher up on trip advisor.

Decent-ish Italian food. Not top notch but then again the prices are very reasonable. The restaurant is cozy and small, one where you can shut the door out on Cairo. Service is superb.

Nice looking pub next door too for a beer afterwards.

Excellent italian food! I have tried fillet, sea food salad, pizza, and they were all very tasty and big quantities.

Also a MUST TRY is the Chocolate fudge and Nougat for Desert!

I was kind of weary about this place when the taxi driver had problems finding it, but my fears were put to rest as soon as we walked in. it was absolutely wonderful!

the menu had quite a variety of italian dishes to choose from, as well as many drink options. I ordered sangria, which seems to be hard to find in cairo, and it was delicious. the bread they served before the meal was very tasty. for my main course, I ordered the lasagna, and it was so incredible. I was burning my mouth from wanting to eat it before it was cool enough. we finished up with desert, and the gelato was also very good. great meal.

the atmosphere inside was also very nice. the music playing was soothing 70's and 80's soft rock (I guess? lionel richie and stuff like that). it was a relaxing little oasis in the middle of a very hustling and loud city. absolutely wonderful.

Great little restaurant, food is so delicious and servings are generous too, i had the steak in garlic and mushroom sauce which i highly recommend :) had cheeky glass of wine which was also nice as not many places in Cairo offer alcohol and atmosphere is very welcoming, also very nice to see the owner Jude is a fellow Brit :) will try desperately to get back before I leave for the chocolate fondue i saw another guest tucking into as it looks very very yummy. Would def suggest this restaurant to anyone!!!!
