“ONE OF THE BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

A restaurant which I have always liked. The food is excellent and it is good value for money. Prices are reasonable, food quality excellent, quantity ample, service is very good, staff is courteous and home delivery is prompt. Chef really knows how to cook various Italian dishes served there.

“Excellent Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

If you want reasonably priced good Italian or continental food this is the place to go. Lovely pizzas, steaks, pastas and fajitas. They also serve some asian dishes like Thai Chicken and Chicken Teriyaki. Each dish has a unique taste and presentation. It is simply a must go restaurant.

“Great Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Was shopping late in F10 Markaz last night and decided to try Italian Oven....was not disappointed!
The service is impeccable, amazingly up to international standards and believe me i have tried plenty of so called posh restaurants in this city and they are seriously lacking in this department.
The restaurant's ambience and decor is also pretty sophisticated with pleasant background music and a huge screen showing dance and music videos...
My husband ordered the special of the day which was a fillet steak done in a tarragon cream sauce and it did not disappoint, very tender fillet of beef, another difficult thing to find here, served with french fries (or any other style of potato of your choice) and a medley of vegetables...delicious!
I thought i would test how authentic their Italian kitchen was...so i ordered a classic....lasagna...with low expectations as other samples of this around the city are nothing like a real lasagna...anyway...to my amazement it was as good as the one i had at an italian restaurant in London recently....amazing!
For dessert i chose a cheese cake which was, for my taste, average....too creamy...
and i ordered an expresso...a big pot of watery coffee arrived which i sent back so they obviously don't know much about coffee...
And the icing on the cake here are the prices...mains are between 300 and 500 rupees, fabulous value for money for this kind of ambience and service.
If this restaurant was in the west i would more than likely give it 4 stars but for Islamabad it definitely deserves 5, as it is a notch above the rest.
