Worth it for the atmosphere

They have a great atmosphere, cozy and quiet with classical musical and romantic lighting. Perfect for a night out or a romantic date, their prices are fair. The pizza however was mediocre at best and the pasta ranges from poor to average. The mints after the meal was a nice touch.

This is definitely a nice place if you want to try pizza and authentic Italian dishes in Cairo. Atmosphere is cozy and staff are friendly. Prices are moderate and food quality is consistent over the years. Definitely a place worth visiting.

We went to Mohandessin branch a couple of days ago but we were shocked with the ground floor smell.. the upper floor smelled bad but wasn't as bad as the ground floor. Staff were sitting idle with no patrons to serve as there was no one there when we arrived but us and another couple. The pizza was really good... More

I'm a regular since 1999 with friends and family, best pizza ever with tons of cheese on it as if the place have a cheese mine underneath! Atmosphere is very classic with a mission bell on every table. Staff is good and service too. Diches are delicious too. Enjoy!

I went to Mohandeseen branch... The food tast good and the portion is huge. The resturant is cosy but my table was poor as no salt and paper and no service plates or cups. The bathroom is old and not good looks ugly ... The sink is very small and not clean. The mint candy is awesome.

i have had mushroom soup, other had pizza and pasta, all was great and tastey, yet prices were very cheap, we were three, we paid around 130 pounds, thats nothing compared to the quality and the whole atmosphere the place maintains.
