“Genuine Italian Warmth”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Pizza Mia is the heart of Italia on the island of Zamalek. Offering italian style 'by the slice' pizza along with a plethora of other options this little restaurant will capture your heart and take it hostage. Everything from the appetizers to the pizzas to the homemade pasta carries the aroma of Italy in a city that rarely has the level of quality in food. The prices are also perfect, you get your money's worth with every dish. It should definitely be on anyone's list of places to go for a quick bite to eat. The secret ingredient to its character, service and quality? The owners who always greet you with a smile and embrace you as a loyal customer.

“Best Italian Pizza in Town”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

While in Cairo for business, i was walking and stumbled upon Pizza Mia. As an italian, food conservative expatriate i usually tend not to try random "italian" restaurants around the world, firstly because i want to try new local things secondly because i usually don't trust "italian" food abroad. Since i had to kill an hour i stepped in full of my italian "know-it-all prejudges" and i was really surprised. Pizza al taglio (slices of pizza to go) is common in italy but quite rare abroad. Ive actually seen the first one in trendy east london just last year so i was amazed to see such an interesting model in Cairo city. Well... i have to say that the quality of pizza is well above average italian pizzerias. A must in town if you're looking for some proper food from Belpaese.
