“Big Waste: Owner Away Kitchen Smashes The Place Down”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

When we arrive no warm welcome as usual no body is ready to welcome us only two table occupied but staff is busy. Dinner time place is not full as before, we did not suffer to find a place, waiter very friendly and smiling brought us the menu, took and repeated the order: 2 pizza foccacio, 2crema di pomodoro, 2 chicken sesar salad, than asked so you want your salads with anchovy and grilled chicken? yes answered...
Arrives the knife and fork in a corners chipped and cracked ceramic rectangular plates, followed with crema di pomodoro which is not warm enough we asked for our Focacia Breads: very kindly answered "I bring you focacia and also croton bread for your soup" than comes roughly crunched old bread with our focaccios of course we continued with focaccios. Than when the soups finished we supposed to make eye contact three times with the waiter finally after we called him another time: answers very kindly your salads are almost ready, 15 minutes after comes our CHICKEN CESAR SALAD: very thin layer of chopped lettuce leaves, topped with roughly crunched old bread again and after long research 2 pieces of deice size anchovy, and 5 pieces of 1/2 square-centimeter chicken. With lots of olive oil creamy sauce, to be honest quantity even not half of a portion. But our main target is grilled chicken as the salad named CHICKEN IS ABSENT the waiter is suffering to find right words to rescue the kitchen than comes somebody not with a uniform from kitchen and says DO YOU KNOW THE COST OF THE FOOD we kindly asked for our check paid and left...
AND ALSO THE OWNER IS ABSENT : we asked to the people who go before very often to this restaurant and discovered the Italian owner is in CAIRO working as a chief in an Italian restaurant. continued "we don't go there any more"

“Best pizza in Hurghada”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

A huge variety of perfectly cooked pizzas including calzones, over 20 pasta dishes, plus stone grilled steak and crispy french fries. Service is friendly and of late has been excellent as has the quality of the food - as the earlier review, there was a sticky patch but long gone. I go at least once month - if it wasn't for the diet I would go more often but the pizzas are irresistible although there is a good range of salads if I was being virtuous!! Also excellent value for money AND smoking and non-smoking areas, plus a kids play area (fairly sound proof) open til 9pm. Can cater for large groups although best to let them know you are coming. What more could you ask for!! :o)

“Best quality for price Italian restaurant”
Reviewed April 7, 2010

The Best italian pizza in town and very Good pasta with a large choice menu. You can come with your kids, they have a play room for them while you wait your dishes, or you can call for delivery. Service is Ok, sometimes sleepy but they do pour your beer and service is charged on your bill. When the restaurant get's full, you might have to wait more than 1/2 hour for your meal. I am a frequent eater there and the value is excellent!

“Sometimes fabulous and sometimes a let down....”
Reviewed January 4, 2010

I am a great lover of DaNanni's and I do visit this restaurant on a regular basis however in the past it was one of the best places to eat in Hurghada. Nowadays it can be rather hit or miss. Sometimes you go and the food is excellent, other times it tastes so bland. Apart from that I will keep going as a regular customer.

There is one let down and that is the service: the waiters quite happily don't poor your beer or cans for you and tell you this is as no service charge is added to your bill: yet we always tip at the end of the meal....... Explain this one to me!
