Good Italian

The food is great, small cosy place, people are friendly - one issue was the A/C. Couldn't be switched on because of the electricity and so it was scorching hot inside, more than outside on a summers day in Beirut.

I went to the ABC branch with a friend and the food was simply awesome. I remember the food was all impeccable, we had the melanzane and I loved it!

I am reviewing sin el fil branch I am disappointed over and over by this restaurant, it has nothing to do with fine italian cuisine. We walked in on a Tuesday eve for early dinner. The waiters were welcoming but through out the evening we were served by four different ones it was not enjoyable. We ordered grilled calamari salad... More

Looking for a good [excellent] Italian restaurant in Beirut? Margherita is probably one of the tastiest in town. The appetizers and salad were super fresh. As a main dish, the seafood pasta was superb.

Great service. Hearty, tasty Italian food. As a regular solo diner, the option of dining at the bar or at a small table makes you feel welcome. The chocolate chestnut cake was rich and moist - perfect and the prawn risotto as a risotto should be.
