The success of the first O’Sole Mio branch at the Nile City Towers Mall led to a beautiful second location in Citystars Mall for handmade Italian comfort food. The assortment of dishes made with top quality ingredients makes for an authentic and mouthwatering Italian dining experience.

Their signature is the pizza! With over 20 types of pizza on the menu, this is an Italian restaurant that knows how to stay true to its roots. More restaurant reviews – https://bit.ly/2Pw3g6Z
To start, we had the complimentary bread basket with crispy house-made breadsticks, accompanied by olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We decided to try the lemonade cocktails and were pleasantly surprised with the Limonata Peach and the Limonata Watermelon, two drinks that were refreshing, tasty, and perfectly sweetened. We then ordered appetizers and chose the Calamari Frutti and Mozarella Frutti, both simple dishes done with excellence.
The appetizers were fresh, hot, and deliciously crunchy. For mains, we opted for the Risotto di Mare and a Diavolo pizza. Trying to sample the most O’Sole Mio iconic menu items, we were excited to see that the risotto came with a hearty portion of seafood and was creamy and delicious. The Diavolo pizza was beyond all expectations and so perfectly made that we immediately wanted to order another one. A classic Tiramisu and Raspberry Cheesecake with a cinnamon mocha and cappuccino ended our delightful meal.
Other Menu Options that Appealed & Beverages Available
On our next trip to O’Sole Mio, we will definitely try more of the pizza menu as the pizza was incredible — hands down one of the best pizzas in the city! We will also need to sample more pasta items like Stuffed Ravioli, Lasagna, and Gnocchi. The beverage menu includes a wide range of soft beverages including milkshakes, smoothies, fruit juices, cocktails, and hot drinks.
Décor & Ambience
O’Sole Mio is laid-out with couches, bright pops of color on the walls, and modern Italian elegance sprinkled throughout. Despite being in a busy shopping center, the ambiance is incredibly relaxed and inviting. The restaurant feels as if it is hidden away in an exclusive area where guests can enjoy a relaxing meal.
