I have done a lot of research online and all I get are good reviews about Egypt. I think the Media tends to exaggerate about the safety if Egypt. I am going in May of 2016 and all I here from my family and friends that the country is not safe and they have tried to talk me out of... More

I enjoy having dinner with my family and friends from time to time in this restaurant in beautiful Heliopolis area in Cairo. The food, service and ambiance are superb. The quality and variety of dishes and desert are outstanding. The plate is served in nice decoration that adds to the quality. The relative cost of a hot meal with a... More

It's highly recommended for people who love Pasta and sausage.. Their service is much nice and the people there are friendly. I think it's a policy there that the waiter makes relationship with the guests by introducing themselves and keep asking you for your requests.

In the Tivoli Dome in El Mirghany, Cairo a relatively new, modern restaurant has been established with Italian food under the name Carino's. You can sit outside near the 'waterfront' and some small fountains. Staff was very friendly.The food was good. I ate pasta with shrimps, that was even very good. We had a tiramisu as desert. That was huge,... More

One of the worst experiences to have in Egypt. First off there is a Carino's parking watchman standing outside the resturant wearing their uniform, you would assume its a service he is getting paid for from the resturant, but no. He is not getting paid by them so he expects you to pay him when you leave for doing nothing.... More

This restaurant is from the same group as Chili's in Cairo, so similarly the service is much the same as Chili's. Both have good and efficient service. I ordered a 11 ounce rib eye with pepper sauce vegetable and potatoes, a trio combination of appetizers and lasagna. The trio appetizer was very good, consisting of crispy calamari, fried and breaded... More

A great chain of italian restaurants... Very good chicken platters.. try the balsamic one (worth a try). The pasta is ok... vine leaves could be better if served a little warmer.
