“Fancy but the food was bland”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

I didn't like the food; I felt it was bland. The experience was good and the ambiance was good and romantic. There was only one other table being serviced in the restaurant which didn't feel that good, however we got to meet the Chef.

“Fantastic Italian Dining!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

After a long day in Cairo, my colleague and I decided to try the Italian restaurant in our City Stars Hotel.. and were we ever glad we did!!

From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by friendly staff, who were there to see to our every need - quick & attentive service, but not too invasive hovering around. The menu provides a nice varied selection, with food that is extremely tasty!

After bringing our drinks, we were given an 'amuse-bouche' of salmon with avocado to start of a mouth-watering evening. For mains I had the tenderloin/rib-eye steak which was good, while my colleague tried their lamb shank, which looked (and so i'm told) was fantastic! To end off the evening, we tried a selection of their 'dulce' desserts, with melt-in-your-mouth panna cotta & tiramisu.

A restaurant worthy of it's wonderful reputation and I will most definitely be visiting Maestro again during my stay!!

“The Perfect Romantic Dinner”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We went there for a Romantic dinner for two in the 24th of October after reading all the positive reviews about it, and boy we're glad we did!
From the moment we stepped in we knew we were in for a treat, starting from the warm greeting we received from the waitress who led us to our table, adding to that the combination of soft Italian music with the dim lighting was just perfect!
As for the food, we had a 3 course meal. appetizer, main course and dessert, they were all cooked to perfection and full of DELICIOUSNESS ! We want to send our compliments to the chef again!

I would recommend this place if you want to celebrate a special occasion with a group of friends or to have an intimate dinner.
Maestro is not cheap, but it is definitely worth every penny we spent :)
