If you haven’t been to Italy before, ever wondered what an authentic Italian dining experience is like? Hilton Cairo Heliopolis’ Italian restaurant takes you on a culinary trip to Italy without leaving Cairo.
Capturing the essence of the Italian spirit, Leonardo embodies La Dolce Vita; where beauty lies in simplicity, warmth, and culinary finesse. Leonardo’s extensive menu gathers various sweet and savoury classics from all over Italy that will definitely cater to all palates.
The menu comprises a list of appetising antipasti, risottos, pasta, and pizzas, in addition to a selection of wholesome chicken, beef, and seafood classics. You don’t want to miss out on Leonardo’s Head Chef signatures, like the Risotto Al Funghi Porcini, where the distinctive taste of wild porcini mushroom meets the mildness of juicy truffle-scented risotto.
Pasta lovers are in for a treat with the chef’s pride and joy Casarecce Mari E Monti; homemade fresh casarecce pasta, chicken, and prawns, all tossed together in creamy white sauce.
When it comes to ravioli, you have to try out Leonardo’s exquisite seabass, zucchini, and saffron ravioli served with creamy lime sauce.
Speaking of seafood, among Leonardo’s skillfully crafted delicacies is the grilled octopus, which comes with green peas puree and an array of seasonal vegetables.
From the dessert menu, we highly recommend the vanilla pannacotta with berries; a lovely blend of sweetness and tang, and is a light, happy ending to a hearty meal.
All of the above mentioned delightful items can be savoured with your favourite wine, beer, cocktail, or non-alcoholic beverage. You can also enjoy a complimentary cheese platter when you order your favourite bottle of wine. Pizza lovers can enjoy the combo of Quatro Stagioni pizza that comes with either a glass of wine or half a pint of beer, for 200++ LE.
And because Italian warmth is all about making everyone satisfied, Leonardo’s menu has gluten-free, vegan, and nutritionally balanced items. And if you happen to have any food allergies or dietary concerns, staff members will gladly assist you in finding the best choice.
The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner from 12 pm to 12 am.
