جربت مطعم وكافيه O.Liv.O

 مطعم وكافيه O.Liv.O
 مطعم Olivo ال فى الزمالك المستخبى كده فى فندق اسمه New President اعتقد من احسن البيتزا فى مصر لحد دلوقتى. اول ما تدخل بتحس ان الفرن الطوب و مكان البيتزا هما اهم حاجه فى المكان. و ده حقيقى.

البيتزا بتتعمل قدامك و تجربه جميله جدا انك تشوفها و هى بتتعمل. بالنسبه للسرعه اقدر اقول على الرغم من الزحمه البيتزا تعتبر جت بسرعه. انا جربت ال sausage و مراتى جربت الخضروات. احلى حاجه ان العجينه رفيعه و مش محروقه و فى شويه جرجير على الوش كده بتدى لون و طعم ممتاز.

البيتزا مش تقيله خالص و العجينه ممتازه. اما بالنسبه للعيب الوحيد هو المكان. المكان شكله كان معمول علشان يبقى بار و يقدم سندوتشات مش بيتزا. او كان معمول للبيتزا بس علشان الأقبال، حط المطعم عدد من الطربيزات فى اماكن مش منطقيه و حتى الطربيزات رفيعه ماتخدش بيتزتين جنب بعض لو اتنين قاعدين فى وش بعض. دى كانت المشكله الوحيده القعده وحشه و المكان stuffy مقفول كده و فيه دخان و دوشه فى وقت الزحمه.

كان نفسى يكون عنده خدمه توصيل بس فى نفس الوقت اقدر اقول القعده و انك تتفرج على البيتزا و هى بتتعمل يعتبر جزء من التجربه.

 الكويس:

– الأكل كان طعمه ممتاز و متقدم بشكل كويس.
– حجات بسيطه بتميز المكان زى المناديل الwipes و الhand wash ال على كل طرابيزه.
– المكان نظيف و الخدمه سريعه


كنت اتمنى الأتى:

– الطربيزات و الكراسى يبقوا مريحين اكتر .
– الأسعار غاليه نسبيا.

A few people in this world claim that the Egyptians invented pizza. At
O.Liv.O, a charming little pizzeria hidden in the New President hotel in
Zamalek, I would believe such a statement. 
Pizza is a long suffering item on many menus across the city,
continually corrupted, modernised and dare I say, Egyptian-side. I don’t
think an Italian would have ever let Nutella Pizza come into existence,
but here it doesn’t only exist; it positively thrives. 
Anyway this is, thankfully, not the case at O.Liv.O, where the dough is
truly thin, the tomato sauce is fresh, and the cheese is Mozzarella.
Goodbye Dotty! The small restaurant also doubles as a bar, serving
cocktails, wine and beer, and when we visited on a busy weekday night
you could have mistaken yourself for being in New York. 
The pizza, as I said, was divine. Made by the chefs in the open, tiny
kitchen centred around the brick oven, it was a wonder to watch them
toss the dough, throw on the garageer and almost perform in their
preparation. My Pizza Bufala – made with imported water buffalo
mozzarella – was faultless – and at a steep LE75 I had rather hoped it
would be. 
Given the proximity of the kitchen, and the fact that there are but a
handful of tables in the space, the pizza came in record time. The staff
were attentive, considerate, and even obliging when I asked them to
turn down the A.C. Perhaps my only complaint would be the unnecessarily
loud background music and the amount of people smoking – but I suppose
that is hardly O.Liv.O’s fault.
There was predictably no space for dessert; the somewhat restricted menu
included sorbets and ice cream but unfortunately there was no tiramisu,
which space or no space, I would have ordered in the blink of an eye.
Perhaps that’s something to consider, O.Liv.O?
I would happily go again, though probably only on pay day, and only
after booking a quiet table in the corner. It’s a shame they don’t do
home delivery, but then again half the experience was enjoying the
atmosphere and watching the pizza dough flying in the air. 
What’s hot:
– The best pizza in Cairo
– Nice touches such as hand sanitiser and wipes on the table
– Fresh, simple ingredients
What’s not:
– It’s small and can feel stuffy and cramped 
– Some of the cocktail ingredients weren’t available 
– It’s expensive – our meal for two consisted of two pizzas and a bottle of wine and cost nearly LE400
Overall rating: 9/10
