Rossini Review

Rossini is in a renovated villa in Heliopolis, but you'll thank yourself if you forgo the pleasant (if generic) interior and sit in the garden for one of Cairo's few alfresco dining experiences, with tables scattered among spotlit palm trees. Rossini is best known for its Italian-influenced seafood, including tender stuffed crab and a delicious shrimp and linguine. For a more local touch, whole fish baked in a casing of salt is a Coptic favorite, especially during the holidays. For dessert, have an authentic tiramisu—Rossini is one of the few places in town that does this dessert right. Service is excellent.

    Rossini

    Very nice , intimate style place, with lovely sea food selection, prices are not cheap, but it worth it.You must sit in the garden, it has a great atmosphere, and so far the best service we encounterd in Cairo.Only down side is that if you are staying in downtown Cairo, Heliopolis might feel quite far out, and if you get a local (black and white) cab to take you there and back, you are looking to spend 100LE (return) on the taxi only.But I still think it really worth it ..They had a a guy playng the saxophone in the garden in and it really felt magical.
