    Castillo: italian in a simple setting

    restaurant decor

    Ok, so I put this restaurant under the 'italian' section. But there are also some lebanese, french and greek dishes on the menu.
    The restaurant is divided into 2 large rooms, each with multiple tables. The decor is simple - wooden tables and chairs, light coloured walls with some pictures and wall-hanging thingies on them. Service is good, with the waiters speaking excellent english and being able to explain about various dishes.
    Lots of my friends work in Thalia Street, and often we meet them here for lunch. Late evenings usually see the restaurant pretty well-packed.
    Wood-fired ovens are used to cook the yummy fresh puffed up bread and pizzas.

    Favorite Dish: We had a mini ma'salaama for some of the KKH girls leaving, and this is what we ordered:-
    - they bought us yummy puffed up 'wheels' of leavened arabic bread with hummus to start
    - starters: we shared tabbouleh, fatoush, garlic bread, cheese sambousa, spinach fattayeh (? spelling), greek salad, artichoke salad
    - mains: four cheese pizza, vege pizza, shrimp pizza, pepperoni pizza, beef bacon/egg/tomato pizza
    - desserts: profiteroles, panna cotta, fresh strawberries, fresh fruit salad with cappucinos and macchiatos.
    If you go there quite a lot, like we do, they often give out free pizza vouchers. With all the pizza free, 5 of us only paid SR30 each for the rest of the meal!!
