Party of 15 friends. Service was terrible. timing's to bring food out was terrible. One guest found shards of metal from a dish cleaning pad in their meal another guest just a hair. My meal was bland and over priced. Took almost an hour to add up the bill when we wanted to leave. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

This an awful place with extremely unprofessional staff with very bad taste . The owner is with very bad attitude. The dishes and glasses are very dirty.

one of the best Italian food in Cairo ! Quality of food is great, it's a bit pricy compared to other Italian restaurants, however, good value for money!

I've had one of the best Italian meals here. And trust an Italian on his ;) the focaccia is absolutely top notch and worth a try! Meat is tasty and fresh and very flexible service: courteous and polite. A place to visit over and over again!

You can taste the fresh ingredients, fresh made, good presentation and great taste. The Fillet was perfectly made. The Pizza Capriciosa was excellent. Also the salads as starters have... More
