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....More

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...More
