Come early or make a reservation as good food and an equally delicious atmosphere have made this Italian restaurant a favourite among Cairenes. Recently remodeled, the subdued lighting and tasteful furnishings are still in place. The dining area is both warm and inviting, and the service is top-notch. For a little extra intimacy, cozy up in the booths tucked away at the back. The servings here are big, so be forewarned. Choose from a wide selection of salads and soups. The creamy onion soup - a rich broth of onions and cream - is said to be the most popular and after one sip you'll know why. Entrees range from pasta and Italian specialties to seafood and a highly recommended veal cordon bleu, which is stuffed with mushrooms and topped with cheese and tomatoes. The pizzas here are fantastic - thick crusts and loaded with cheese and toppings. The iced cheesecake is fine, but the apple pie is uninspiring.
