This is one of the best pastas I have had, note not the best but one in the top. A great selection of dishes and a good wine list. Definitely a must if you want Italian food when in Beirut.

Very good experience I visited the restaurant with the family on a sunny Sunday. The place was fully booked, the personnel was cry helpful and kind welcoming us and Serving us as well. Despite the load the kitchen was very quick serving the food. Delicious dishes should keep this standard

We went here for a work lunch so it wasn't too busy, the pasta dishes are divine, customer service was good overall but could be sharper. Worth a visit

On three different occasions the food was great. However, most of the waiters and waitresses could use some training in explaining the dishes. The menu needs to be reworked. It's too big and it takes ages to go through it. It's not user-friendly. The place is better to have discussions with friends since it's calm and comfortable. Parking is available.

I love this restaurant because of the authentic Italian atmosphere and decor and the excellent food. I love their variety of dishes, the bread with olives and the fun of picking a number that could make you eat for free if you guess it. Nice concept.

I ate at margherita sin el fil, gemmayze,dbayyeh and jounieh. I loved food and service at gemmayze and sin el fil. You should try mushroom soup soo tasty and asparagus and grilled salmon. service messy at dbayeh, food good. Did not like food and service in jounieh.

It's top of mind when as a family on Sunday noon or at night we want to take our 2 young daughters out. It was packed that Sunday Marathon. The food is still consistent, pizza margharita, truffle pasta, etc While service was slow and chaotic at times, we always enjoyed the smiles of the staff...it helps

Cozy place, tables are so near to each others so it's hard to move around even for waiters. Service was good. Expensive but portions was OK. Friendly staff.

Busy restaurant and waiters can get easily lost. Two times had an incidents of mixed up orders- so make sure to repeat the order even if they are busy. The downside of a wrong order is the waiting and correction; the upside is that we ended up with free desert twice! the Prosecco appetizer is good; the Salmon Breuscitta is... More
