8 Restaurants to Eat Homemade Pasta in Cairo

Italy and the traditional Italian cuisine is known to be incredibly scrumptious! Seriously, what could be a better reward than a traditional homemade Italian meal after a day filled with work, heat and traffic? Of course there is more to Italian cooking than pizza and pasta, but you simply cannot deny the Italian classics, especially the homemade pasta. Unfortunately, many people have trouble finding quality restaurants that offer traditional dishes at reasonable prices. Fortunately, on the other hand, we've curated a list that should help limit the frustration of finding the best restaurants in the city that serve homemade pasta. More importantly, restaurants that won’t break the bank and leave you with an empty wallet. 

Cucina - JW Marriott Hotel Cairo

Contrary to popular belief, no one actually plays Cucina here. The reason why many people come to this restaurant is because of their pasta. 

La Trattoria – Zamalek

Trattoria's spaghetti marinara will make you go mamma mia!

Vittorio's – Maadi

Rumour has it that brave warriors fought over Vittorio the Great's crespelle di magro at the Coliseum.

Bella - Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza 

Aside from the delicious pasta that is served in Bella, there is another important detail you need to know; a great wine selection. It would be a shame to not compliment a tasty Italian meal with an excellent glass of wine from their cellar.

Pane Vino - Intercontinental Cairo Semiramis 

Do you like penne? Do you like shrimps? Do you also happen to love Ahmed Harfoush? Well, sorry! Those three are inseparable there. 

Lucca - Royal Maxim Palace Kempinski 


Do you believe in life after love? You will after you try their spaghetti alla chitarra.

Mermaid – Maadi

Located on Road 9, Mermaid is one of those places that will make you feel like home. As basic as this sounds, you MUST try their spaghetti bolognaise.

Kitch - Katameya Heights

 Their lobster tail spaghetti may look and sound fancy schmancy and oh la la, but it won't hurt your wallet. You're welcome.
