“A delightful oasis of authentic Italian food in the middle of Hadaba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Who'd have thought that a little restaurant above Sheikh Abdallah market in Hadaba would become one of the go-to places in Sharm. Inside, decor is crisp and clean, with air con at a sensible level, and movie poster memorabilia decorating some of the walls. The balcony outside has plenty of seating for those who enjoy the open-air experience. Meals are good quality, the menu is varied, and service is excellent - guests are told the day's specials when they arrive, and there is something to suit every palate. The restaurant represents excellent value for money with a good atmosphere and attentive staff.

“Always a nice place to eat and stay...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

The restaurant is mainly known to residents living in Sharm. It's always a good idea to go there, as the food is wonderful at very reasonable prices. Service is perfect and friendly and the food has a nice variety.From pasta in different variations to pizza to chicken/meat/fish. Pollo with mushroom souce is one of my personal favourites. By the way - all sauces served are super tasty - my compliments to the chef. Also a wonderful mozzarella is served. Reservations can be made in case you plan to go there with a bigger group. If you dont have time to go out - home delivery is also an option. I go there regulary and have never been disappointed.
Great taste, grate value!

“Never disappointed - good food and good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Personally never had a bad meal here. Simple and good food, very reasonably priced. Think I have tried most of their dishes...although maybe not all of the pizzas.
Some of my favourites: tortellini a la boscaiola, tagliata, chicken with mushroom sauce and so much more. Hubby loves spaghetti lobster here. If they have semifreddo (and you like desserts), you should try it - it's really good! They are also very accommodating and can adapt their dishes to what you want.
Find them above Sheikh Abdullah supermarket in Hadaba, entrance from the back of the building, then go upstairs.

“Great,authentic Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

This restaurant has only been around a couple of years but is making its mark with the local Italian expats.The food is great and the prices are pretty good aswell,the most expensive pizzas (takeaway)are only LE38,the cheapest LE16. The rest of the menu is just as cheap and equally as good.Its a bit tricky to find but all the locals know where it is.
